Ticket prices can be found on the ticketing page on Gateways website.

Ticket prices do not include booking fees that are applied by the ticketing agent. Running a ticket agency costs money – (premises, IT, staff, communication, credit card commission etc). A fee is calculated as a percentage of the price of each ticket and added by agents on top of a ticket’s face value to cover both their costs of sale and as a charge for the service provided.

‘Face Value’ is the basic price printed on a ticket set by the promoter before the addition of any booking fees, service charges or other extra costs have been added (e.g. for mailing).

Children below the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult.

Following the Government lifting of restrictions on 19th July 2021 we would like to assure ticket holders that although it won’t be required by law to wear masks or social distance and nor will there be any need for any obligatory use of Covid tests or vaccine passports upon entry, we acknowledge that Coronavirus is still out there and we all have a social responsibility to keep each other safe. With that we would like to extend to you our festival code of conduct: - We politely ask attendees to agree that they will: 


• Undertake your own health risk assessment, consider if you wish to travel to and attend the event (taking into account your age and any health conditions or vulnerabilities). 


• Check for symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, new and persistent cough, or a loss of/change in sense of taste or smell) before travelling to the event. If you, or anyone you live with, have one or more of these symptoms (even if they are mild) you should not attend, and should follow the guidance on testing and self-isolation. 


• Not attend the event if you need to self-isolate, for example because you have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, are required to isolate because you are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms. 


• Consider checking in by scanning the NHS QR code on site. Whilst you are under no obligation to and this is no longer a condition of entry, checking in will help to reduce the spread of the virus and protect all customers. 


• Follow good hygiene practices, such as using hand sanitiser that you’ll find around the event site. 


• Be mindful of high density areas. Although the event takes place outdoors and involves free movement between people there will be congested areas that includes high density or has a large number of people. Such areas include entrance gates, bars, catering stands, the area directly in front of the stage and when exiting the event. Whilst not compulsory you may wish to consider observing social distancing and mask wearing in these areas.
