All Points East Festival 2019

Recommended Posts

I won 4x tickets for Christine and the Queens last Sunday, when I arrived none of them were valid at the gate. 

Turns out AXS had voided them, and sent out new tickets at about 1.45pm that day, so I had to go into my emails and find them. They wouldn't scan off my phone, so I had to manually read out 4x barcode numbers to a guy who typed them in and we got waved through.

Only way is to let someone else log into your dice account on their phone using your phone number. You'll just need to give them the activation code you'll receive by text.

In that case I will just give them away to whoever wants them, not gonna bother selling them. First dm gets them.

Jade Bird has replaced Sam Fender and they've put Tamino is her place

Does anyone know anything about him? I don't remember seeing his name on the list previously

Why is it invalid? All the tickets we're going up on today are competition winners ones...

My friend just got an email from Viagogo saying the seller uploaded the ticket incorrectly; apparently it's been sold elsewhere? But I'm unsure if that's referring to my sale of it, or something else. Not quite sure what to do

I really fucked up wearing shorts. 

I'm wearing shorts and leaving in an hour, is it not advisable?

I’ve listened to him a fair bit as he’s on the Green Man line up - don’t like him at all. 

Looks a lot like Timothy Chalamet though!

This won't be much help to you but I used the offer and got them through instantly. So if you didn't there must be an issue at some stage of the process.

Cheers for that. Finally got through to on the phone. The superviser was vaguely aware of the show but unaware of the the 2 for 1 deal. Wanted screenshots sending which luckily I have.

I changed to jeans and am pretty warm from the walk. Either will be fine though! It's comfortable weather and not forecast to be too chilly later either.

So anyone who is there now and for some reason reading this, how busy is it?

Busier than Christine and less open than last weekend but still fine ATM. Bag checks a bit more vigourous

Just go, they'll be able to argue their way in.

Just talking to security and they have 22,000 people here today for BMTH

Maybe the 4000 full-price tickets sold for those two was genuine. 😱😱😱

Oucharoony!

Be interesting to see what impact this has on next year. I remember reading they had signed a five year deal with Tower Hamlets for the use of the Park so I'd guess they still have to do two weekends. Do they go after bigger names that will sell out or scale back, booking smaller, cheaper names with less of a financial hit?

My guess would be a mixture of both. One big name each weekend then two smaller gigs.

Is that full price tickets sold or including those given away?

I am worried for the fest after all this with the tickets this year - it's a terrible experience for those fans who paid full whack, and really bad publicity for the fest. It's a well run festival, with well curated lineups, on the whole. They've been unlucky this year with days like today being a perfect storm of reasons not to sell.

Sales are likely to suffer in subsequent years if a percentage of people hold out for cheaper tickets nearer the event. The exception would be if a popular act with strong undercard (see: Strokes) is well received and expected to sell out.

Will be watching intently for future editions...
