A very limited number of extra day tickets for both days and will go on sale this Friday 24th April at 9.30am. These come with a bundle of a return bus ticket at £8 per person per day and will be the final ticket sales for Wild Life 2015 which sold out in under a week.
Adur District Council granted a premises licence to SJM Ltd, authorising the sale of alcohol, late-night refreshment and entertainment but imposed 92 conditions which must be met before the festival can go ahead.
Buses will be running to and from 3 locations continually throughout the day from 1pm until the LAST BUS to the Festival leaves at 5.30pm. There will be no buses running to the Festival before 1pm or after 5.30pm.
Bus hubs will be located at
a) Madeira Drive, Brighton Sea Front
b) Kingsway, Hove
c) AMEX Stadium, Falmer
d) Worthing Central Train Station.
At the end of the day, buses will depart starting at 22.00. On Saturday night the main outdoor stage ends at 23:00 but the Warehouse Project outdoor DJ stage goes on until 01:00 with the Black Butter & Friends Arena also finishing late at 12.45am. Buses will run continuously from 22.00 to around 02:00 to clear all festival goers.
On Sunday again the Wild Life Main Stage closes at 23:00 whilst the Treatment vs Bedlam Arena and WHP Outdoor DJ stage brings the Festival to a close at Midnight. Again, buses will start departing at 22:00 and run continuously till around 1am.
You can catch the bus to the Festival from any one of four departure points – your ticket is valid from any point. Similarly, at the end of the night the buses will run in a loop taking in all three Brighton bus stops so get off at whichever is best for you. The Worthing bus has only one pick up and drop off point.
If you have bought a Festival ticket without bus travel please give consideration as to how you are getting to the Festival and importantly how you will get home at the end as there is no public transport running at the end of either night. If you want to buy a bus ticket to combine with your Festival ticket we strongly advise you do this now before they sell out. You can buy these from the same ticket agent you bought your Festival ticket.
More information will be here when available.
