The Ticket Trout: netting you some great festival passes

United Kingdom United Kingdom | by Alex Fahey | 02 July 2010

Look I ain't havin' you on, these tickets are legit but I've gotta get rid of them.  I'm a heavy metal fan and when I heard that Sonata Arctica and Children of Bodom were playing Bloodstock Open Air for only £99.95, well I took the bait and snapped a couple up for me and a mate.

Problem is though, he’s a minnow and a delicate sole and has backed out (he don't like metal see, swimming with supermarket trolleys and fisherman's hooks etc.) so they gotta go.  Just don't carp on to me with what a good time you had, hey?

I trout you want to waste time treading water with these, as 2, 3 and 7 berth apartments are already sold out.  This year it's the turn of God Speed You! Black Emperor to curate ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas so with tickets from £165, it's best to net 'em early.  But if I were you, I would pool all your cash together so you and a school of mates can shell out for an apartment as a group.

I know this one well, down Essex way innit?  I'm a local buoy ain't I?  Tell you what chum, I'll let you see the likes of Mystery Jets and a fave of mine Liquid Liquid, for £55.  Now that's a steal, I feel like a sucker for giving them away at that price.  If you're a city dweller, don't you worry your pretty little hammer-head, you can even get the tube back home...

I shad have kept this to myself, but it's Summer Sundae’s 10th birthday so I thought I would char it - a party needs people right?  With Mumford and Sons, Roots Manuva and Teenage Fanclub all billed to play I am shore that'll you need to get your skates on cos at £113.50 they go faster then a school of sailfish.

Psst, you look like someone that swims against the tide, so listen up; head down to Standon Calling this year.  Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, British Sea Power and Gilles Peterson will be making appearances, but it's the return of the underwater dance arena that gets my gills going. Kipper this under your hat 'cos for £95 you'll be reeling when they all go. Get your cash out now, don't mullet over.

If he's not caught, the Ticket Trout will be back next week with a whole new freshly hooked eels, sorry deals.
