Only a quicky as im trying to get tickets myself for download,

Several Points of Interest:

CONFIRM EXACTLY WHAT TICKET YOU ARE BUYING BEFORE YOU BID

Ive come across plenty of tickets for festivals that are pretty vague. this I suspect in a couple of cases is down to people who have purchased the wrong type of ticket originally. Prime example is this years download tickets were available in various forms:

Weekend (arena only - no camping)

Weekend and Guest pass (arena only - no camping)

Weekend and camping (arena and std campsite access)

Weekend and family camping (quiet campsite access ONLY!!! dont be mislead)

Weekend and camping and coach  (arena and std campsite access and you HAVE to use the coach!)

Weekend and Campervan parking  (arena and campervan carpark access only!)

+ various VIP varients

 As of so far no separate camping add-on tickets are available, so if you accidentally bid on a weekend ticket, and need to camp you will be gutted if youve bid on the wrong type of ticket - and theres plenty out there. You will be even more gutted if you pay over the odds thinking its a weekend ticket including camping!!!

Thing is this was never a problem a few years ago at download as there were only 4 types of ticket:

weekend with camping, day tickets, VIP and campervan weekend tickets 

So beware - theres plenty of people who will inadvertantly or willingly mug you (legally) on ebay!!!

 YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!
