Day tickets are priced at £18 for Friday, £28 for Saturday, and £8 for Sunday, under 18's half price, under 10's are £3 per day and under 3's are free (no need for a ticket this year).
The organizers are very keen to support charities and 20 percent of Sundays ticket sales will be donated locally, as well as giving hundreds of free tickets to charity organisations in the build up to the festival.
The organizers are keeping with the ethos of supporting Yorkshires bands and artists (of which there are over 80 on themed stages this year) and are also introducing a few new ideas. This year sees the introduction of theme nights on the marquee stage with an American night to herald Independence Day on Friday the 4th of July and a sixties seventies theme night on the Saturday. American genre bands will perform on the Friday while Saturday's line-up includes Beatles and Abba tributes amongst other popular tunes from that era.
There's lots of things for kids free including the arts and crafts workshop, childrens entertainer, zumba, tennis coaching and competitions. At a small cost there are age ranging bouncy castles, slides and rides, a climbing wall and waterballs along with the clay modelling, hair braiding, crazy golf, a carousel, henna tattoos and face painting.
Dogs are allowed as long as they are well behaved and are monitored closely by their owners.
More information will be here when available.
