Tickets must be exchanged for a wristband on first entry.  Tickets must be given up by the customer in exchange for a wristband and cannot be retained.

Weekend Tickets/Wristbands – allow access to campsites from 3am Thursday 22nd August until midday on Monday 26th August and access to the arena on all show days.  Weekend wristband allows unlimited re-entry to and from the site for the holder.  There is no re-entry on ticket alone. We do not sell a weekend ticket without camping. 

Early Entry Permits – only valid when presented in conjunction with a Weekend ticket.  Allow access to campsites from 2pm Wednesday 21st August for people who want to set up camp early. Limited number available from limited agents.

Day Tickets – are valid for entry from 11.00am – midnight on the day the ticket is valid for.  Day tickets are not valid for camping even if the customer buys one day ticket for each day.   Limited number available from limited agents. Day wristbands are valid until the arena closes each day. There is no readmission through the outer gates on day tickets/wristbands. Day wristbands are permitted re-entry to the arena from the village area.

Day ticket holders should be aware that some of the stages are tented and have limited capacities. Tickets holders should allow ample time to enter and find the stage their favourite acts are playing to arrive early enough to ensure the tents are not already full.

Campervan Passes - can be purchased in advance from  Leeds Festival.com/campervans  or on the gate for a higher price subject to space.  All customers will be sent a hanger (not a ticket) to go on their windscreen and should never be sent a campervan ticket. 

Lockers – customers have the option to pre-book a locker at the festival which can be used to store small valuables and charge mobile phones.  Customers can book these via

Leeds Festival.com/lockers or directly through www.lockerhouse.co.uk). Customers will receive an e-mail booking confirmation from Lockerhouse (instead of a ticket).

PLEASE NOTE: the locker sizes are 25cm wide x 15.5cm deep x 10cm high - so they are the right size for small valuables (mobiles, wallets, cameras) and if you wish to use the 12v phone charger, you must bring your own 12v car adaptor.

Coach & Ticket packages or coach only tickets - can be booked from nationwide destinations via The Big Green Coach Company. Event tickets are not sent out in advance and must be collected on the coach.
