I love going to festivals and gigs, but the tickets aren’t cheap. Fortunately, there are often late deals to save money on tickets.
Here are the best deals I’ve found to save you cash. I can’t do anything about the rain though!

Ticketmaster Flash Sale
From 9am on Friday 31st May there’s going to be a Ticketmaster flash sale. I’ve no idea what will be on there, but judging by the ticket struggles for the All Points East festival in London I imagine there will be lots of festivals listed. It ends midnight Sunday 2nd June.
Groupon discounts on British Summer Time
You can buy tickets to most dates from this big London festival (and more) via Groupon without fees or charges, dramatically reducing how much you’ll pay. These fees can easily be between £10 and £20 per ticket (I know!!), so this in itself is a great saving. But it gets better.
You can also stack a code on top to bring the price down even further. There’s a 20% off code available from Vouchercodes.
So let’s say, like me, you want to to go see Chemical Brothers at All Points East later this month. It should cost £63, but via Ticketmaster it’d cost you £74.05 with all the added extras. So buying via Groupon saves you £11. And if you apply the 30% off code then you get it for £44, a 40% discount.
There are a number of events on Groupon, but at the time of writing the following headline acts and support from APE and BST were available. I’ve listed the price before any extra discount code is applied:
- Field Day (June 8th) – £45
- Florence and the Machine, The National and more (July) – Two for £130
- Robbie Williams, Black Eyed Peas and more (July) – £69.95
- Celine Dion, Josh Groban and more (July) – £79.95
- Barbara Streisand, Bryan Ferry and more (July) – £79.95
