There are a number of ticket types available for the festival, allowing you to tailor make your perfect weekend at Rewind Festival. Whether you want to stay with us for the weekend, or visit us from day to day, you’ll find all of these and much more on offer.

Please visit our Tickets page for information or to buy tickets.



As in previous years, we will be operating a tiered ticket system for 2018. This ensures a fair opportunity for everyone to buy their tickets at as reasonable a price as possible.

We will have four tiers this year; Tier 1 - Early Bird, Tier 2, Tier 3 and Tier 4 - Last Minute.

With a set allocation of tickets per tier, this means the earlier you buy, the cheaper your ticket.



For the first time, we will be introducing a Pre-Payment Plan option to help spread the cost of your tickets to Rewind 2018.


These tickets are set Tier 2 and Tier 3 prices, and are subject to the regular booking fees.

All you have to pay up front are your booking fees and postage. From there on, the balance of your order is split over the following months until close to the event.

PLEASE NOTE: final payment dates will be advised for every booking, approximately 8 weeks prior to your event)


Please see the full Ticketing Terms & Conditions, or contact us for more information.

We will once again be selling Rewind tickets for Rewinders living in our local areas, free of fees.
