News: Off The Tracks Celebrates 25 Years with 2013 Season Ticket Offer

Early bird tickets are now on sale for Off The Tracks Festivals 2013 – including a brand new ‘season ticket’ covering admission to both the Spring and Summer events.

Buyers of the double ticket can save 20 per cent or more on the price of buying individual advance tickets for both festivals. Advance tickets also cover free camping and parking, including caravans and live-in vehicles.

Off The Tracks, nominated for four categories at the UK Festival Awards, celebrates its 25th anniversary in September 2013. The festivals are held in picturesque Derbyshire countryside with excellent, family-friendly facilities at Park Farmhouse, Isley Walton, near Castle Donington.

The double tickets, now on sale via www.offthetracks.co.uk, include admission to the Spring Festival (Bank Holiday weekend, May 24-26) and the Summer Festival (Aug 30-Sept 1) for £120 for adults (saving 20 per cent, or £30, on the usual advance ticket price). Double tickets for 12-16 year olds are £60 (a saving of 25 per cent or £20).

Festival director Andy Cooper says: “We’ve already seen the number of festivals which have gone under this year for various reasons, so we’re very proud to be still here, celebrating a quarter of a century as a small, independent festival at the heart of the community.

“Although we had a hugely successful 2012, we know people are still thinking carefully about how they spend their money, so we wanted to do a ticket offer which rewards our loyal supporters who come every year and like to book early. The double ticket offer in particular represents a huge saving.”

Individual festival early bird tickets are also now on sale priced £60 for adults and £30 for 12-16 year olds, a saving of £15 and £10 respectively on the usual advance price. Under 12s are admitted free of charge.

Off The Tracks is nominated in four categories at the UK Festival Awards – Best Small, Grassroots and Family Festival, and Best Toilets.

Acts for the 2013 festivals have still to be announced though headliners in 2012 included Dub Pistols, Hawkwind, Dodgy, The Beat and Simon Friend’s Seismic Survey. The festivals feature more than 40 acts over three stages and more than 80 real ales, ciders and perries.
