The early bird offer has ended. An adult ticket is priced at £65. A youth (aged 13-17 years) ticket is priced at £20, child (aged 6-12 years) is priced at £10, and kids (aged 5 years & under) weekend tickets are £1. A live-in vehicle pass is £15 and a car park pass is priced at £5. Prices do not include service fees.
The emphasis will be on having a good time – a celebration of what The West and beyond has to offer, accessible, welcoming, affordable and a fantastic party…… the like of which the Westcountry is famed for.
The ethos of the festival is pretty simple - having a great time, with your friends ( both old and new) against a beautiful Westcountry backdrop. They have brilliant good-time bands, booked - some you'll have heard of, some not - all are of excellent quality.
The music will be held over three stages, all are undercover. Hotel Bastardos will take over later on, with further areas to chill, play music and continue to sample the beverages on offer.
The Sunday at Once Upon a Time in The West will be a day of rest, the campsite closes 4.30pm, food stalls will be open in the morning and early afternoon, and Hotel Bastardos will be re-running the legendary Dub Breakfast, but the bars will be closed and there will be no amplified live entertainment.
More information will be here when available.
