A day ticket is a great idea but as people have said it is still eyewateringly expensive. £220 for a day for a family w two kids. Ouch. I imagine you'd get lifetime membership of Cotswold Wildlife Park for less (it is different kind of wild lifeat Wilderness, I realise). One would think locals could be offered a better deal.

Charlotte: Charlbury does suffer some inconvenience because of Wilderness on its door step. Noise and traffic etc. 

May I suggest the following for the Sunday - or Friday, or possibly both, and only for Charlbury residents:

Adults 20 + £ 10

Teenagers 13-19 £ 5

Younger free. Free parking as well, although probably not needed.

That I think would go down a treat and increase the Wilderness local support.

Katie: it's not an either/or. 

Riverside is great, but a very different kind of event from either Wilderness or Cornbury. And Riverside do have their own stage at Cornbury as well.

Why not donate the money to Riverside instead and go there for free!

I suspect these tickets will attract few takers at £75 for an adult & also quite expensive for children, given that they are for Sundays only & that the 4-day tickets for locals were £120. It's also rather difficult to find out from the programme which acts & events are available on the Sunday.

However, it is good that Wilderness is rethinking its policy on 1-day tickets.

Cornbury offers 1-day tickets for all 3 days, typically Adult £85.00 ; Over 70s
£45.00 ; YP (13-16 incl) £45.00 ; Child (3-12 incl) £20.00 [Fridays a bit cheaper]. It's also much easier to see which acts will be on each day. But then Cornbury is a very different kind of music festival from Wilderness ...

Last year we were told we couldn't have day tickets because we'd miss out on the 'immersive' experience. Is it less immersive this year? Or was it a typo for 'expensive'?

Has the word 'lieu' in the phrase 'in lieu of your feedback' been correctly used?  Is this offer 'in place of'' our feedback or 'as a result of our feedback' implying a reward?

Am i right in saying these are roughly the prices the whole weekend used to be when the festival started, apart from all kids were free or very cheap? £35 to take a 6 year old up for the day. Not great.

I love having the fesival here. It is a pain, but its only a wknd and it used to be that all the locals went up and had fun. But now the cost is so restrictive that most people (families) i know dont go any more.
