Nothing here yet..with 2 weeks to go I’m developing anxiety! 
 

For those that have received tickets did it say they had been sent on see tickets? I haven’t had an email or anything.

Ours have arrived today! Minus 1 car parking ticket  😞

What’s the best way of contacting See about this, from anyone’s experience? Has it happened to anybody else this year?

 

 

FYI - I used the contact form to get in touch with See regarding the missing car park pass. They have emailed today to say they are sending another one in the post 👍

FINALLY GOT MY EMAIL! Been on the edge of my seat about that for a week now.

All my mates long since got the golden tickets in hand, so just a few days now and we should be good to go.

With any luck the tent I ordered from Germany might even make it in time...

Sorry for the spoilers, but they're more a sort of mix of blue, purple red and green, on white paper. 

Seriously though, great news... It's real now isn't it? Good luck with the tent.

I got an email on Friday saying they had been dispatched. Arrived this morning.

Ive just realised Download Festival is only at 53% and that kicks off on Friday... 😳

I wouldn’t trust these trackers at all, is Download sold out? Slam Dunk never got above 50% as far as I know and I didn’t see an outcry of people without tickets

If you search "Download Festival Tickets" on Twitter, it definitely doesn't inspire confidence... lots of people stating they still haven't received and that's on Friday. The festival also sent a tweet saying people who havent receive their car parking passes need to show ID and email confirmation. Time will tell I suppose.

Complete mess with my friend's ticket. Delivered to a house in Gillingham on the 18th May. He lives in Warwickshire. And he's not the only one with the same error. And See stating tickets 'irreplaceable' today...

That's bad - surely if the ticket is lost before you / anyone receives it, it's SeeTicket issue?

But download is primarily ticketmaster isn't it? 

 

Yes it is, Ticketmaster are the main ticket seller for Download https://downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets/

I'm not sure what the story is, looks like there's multiple ticket vendors. What I do see is "RIP tickets", whatever they are, appear to be physical tickets and lots of people stating they haven't been received. I'm hoping that's not See Tickets side of things...

I've just checked and Ticketmaster is where the problem is for download, they are the preferred agent. All of those tweets are @ ticketmaster.

See tickets won't let you down, outside a few individual problems, that you get with any event. Which obviously sucks if you're one of the unlucky ones, but the vast majority will get their tickets on time, I'm sure. They still have until the weekend to ship them to be inside the targeted 7 days. 🙂

Yeah but 7 days isn't leaving much margin for error for tickets being sent to Ireland. If See Tickets don't declare them correctly, they could end up delayed in customs.

I'm not sure they're supposed to be shipping tickets to Ireland are they? Thought EU / International tickets were supposed to be collection?

Anyway, this is the target set by the festival, I believe. I heard it was to reduce forgery opportunities.

This is the first year that they defaulted delivery of International tickets to box office collection however they updated many Irish buyers to delivery as, for one of a few reasons, a lot drive so would need their car park passes to gain access to the box office.

PITA that is. Probably need to rethink that for future years then, a collection point away from the festival site like viago do? As I imagine there will be other International guests who rent a car. And, technically, anybody from mainland Europe can drive here, I drive over Europe all of the time.

See tickets really should have factored in the additional bank holidays and the backlog in collection and delivery it was bound to create. Ticket delivery should really be completed 3 weeks before the event and that includes car passes, accommodation info etc. 

Doesn't make any real difference.

There's only one additional bank holiday, and See have worked throughout it processing the despatch.

Tickets are all sent with next day guarantee so all those processed over the bank holiday would be delivered today.

I know. I'm getting seriously nervous. We leave on the Sunday before.

If my tickets were sent to carrier on 1 June (on See Tickets) but still no update/email - should I be concerned? Anyone else in this situation 🙃

I think in your shoes I would be chasing them up if they don't arrive today. 

Try not to worry though, there's a HIGH probability that they weren't handed to Royal Mail until yesterday, bank holidays and all... 

 

EDIT: In fact, on second thoughts, there may have been a large backlog from the bank holiday, so maybe they won't even get handed over to RM until today.
