Almost Under 16, Parent Needs Ticket?

Postby Proacher » Tue May 17, 2011 4:24 pm

I saw that people under 16 at the festival need to have a parent or guardian with them after I had already booked a ticket for myself. My father is coming with me to the UK but he is not interested in the festival (and will not buy tickets for himself, basically). Myself I'm born on Christmas 1995, that means by July I'll be only 5 months away from 16.

The question is, does my father need to get me in or can I just get admitted to the festival on my own? And if my father needs to get me in, does he need a ticket as well? Because he cannot afford one.

Are you going to the festival with other people? As long as there is an adult (you'd need to check with Sonisphere with this.. it's either over 18 or over 21) with you, you should be ok. Also, they need to look responsible (meaning: they could do you a massive favour and not be drunk when coming through the main gates with you for the first time, going in).

As long as there's someone over the required age in your group you should be ok.

Officially, yes you need someone who is over 18 to be with you and you may be stopped on the gate

However this is a festival and most people are quite nice and if you explain your situation to them then they'll just take you in with you and part ways with you. Alternatively Join one of the forum camps and camp with us if you are going alone

Thank you guys for your help.

So, just a stupid question, if my dad has no ticket, he can't get me in can he?

Do you look old? You could probably just get in.
