The Brit Fest organisers have revealed that tickets will go on general sale on Monday 4th September, with a special pre-sale period for sign-ups from Friday 1st September at 9am.

The family friendly festival launched with an exclusive VIP event two weeks ago and has since had thousands signing up to be the first to buy tickets.
Olivier-nominated brothers Anthony and Edward Prophet, the team behind the event, said: "We have been genuinely overwhelmed by the public support and interest in this new festival, since the launch, we have had people literally signing-up in their thousands and there’s still a month to go before the on sale dates, it’s really quite phenomenal.
"Even though we are almost a year away to the event itself, we continue to work really hard to ensure we are delivering a festival like no other, we can tell that festivalgoers from far and wide are getting really excited about it – we promises to deliver the biggest festival this part of Cheshire has seen.
“We are really proud of the music line up at The Brit Fest, there’s something for everyone, but it’s not just about the music, it’s about celebrating the very best of British culture, cars, food and drink, fashion, the arts, and the amazing talent we have in this country.
“We are excited as everyone to welcome festivalgoers to Cheshire, and hope they embrace the event and take the opportunity to join us for a fabulous weekend with their family and friends.”
Tickets will include day passes for children and adults, weekend passes, VIP tickets, and hospitality packages. Full details will be announced when tickets go on sale.
In addition to a full programme of live music, the festival will boast an entire weekend of fun activities to keep the family entertained spanning the 100-acre site, including vintage fairground, white knuckle rides, free family cinema, woodcraft and whittling, food and drink festival, artisan market, garden party, festival village green, wellness in the wild with yoga, classic cars, as well as a chance to meet Team GB athletes and the Extreme Mountain Bike Show.
