Those who signed up for the exclusive pre-sale via Common People’s website over the last couple of months will, today, have received an email detailing how they can go about purchasing tickets for the new festival, set to take place on the Bank Holiday weekend of 23rd and 24th May, and set on Southampton Common. The pre-sale for Common People, curated by the multi-award winning Bestival team, will allow early-adopters to purchase Saturday/Sunday day tickets, and weekend tickets for themselves and their friends:
Thank you for registering for the exclusive Common People pre-sale! Below is your unique code to purchase your standard price tickets. Please follow the link, use your code and snap up your tickets when the pre-sale begins at 9am, Wednesday 21st January. You can also buy tickets for friends at the same time – just select the total number of tickets you want to purchase.
A select few — 100 to be precise — will have an extra surprise in their inbox this morning thanks to a ballot (which everyone was entered into automatically upon registering for the pre-sale) offering £10 tickeets to the festival. Here at Sotonight we had no such luck:
Unfortunately you aren’t one of the lucky 100 to win the chance to buy a ticket for £10, however you are still able to access the exclusive ticket pre-sale to purchase Common People tickets before they go on general sale.
Sotonight understands that the standard price for day tickets to Common People will be in the region of £25, available via Ticketline. The headliners and complete lineup for Common People are yet to be announced, but chief curator Rob da Bank says he wants the festival to “make Southampton proud”.
