Want to camp, but scared off by the pre-booking process?

I've just been notified by the VBOA that due to the teething troubles encountered in the pre-booking process this year, the powers that be at Billing/Hoseasons have agreed to give the special VBOA camping rate of £15 per night to people paying on the gate for this years event.

Because of this, your stand passes will now take the form of the familiar VBOA sticker of previous years.

In line with this, we will be issuing a VBOA "letter of authenticity" to all of you who have purchased stand passes with us. Along with your stand pass, this will allow you to take advantage of the special VBOA rate without the need to pre-book if you wanted to.

Those of you who have already pre-booked will obviously be unaffected by this, you will still get your tickets on the gate as per the pre-booking process.

The teething troubles have now been pretty much ironed out and the pre-booking system works well. While you can pay on the gate if you wish, we recommend that you pre-book if you can. This will be the last year that booking will be available on the gate.
