Speaking about the ticket sales, Festival Director Jim King said: “The response to the launch has simply been incredible. The system crashed and we sold out the 3,000 special '99' tickets in a day, which exceeded all expectations. To cope with continued demand we have now had to go straight into launching the early bird ticket and signs are these too are being snapped up fast.
“We would urge people to avoid delay in securing their great value early bird. For only £135 they can get a three-day ticket including camping plus free coach travel from all major cities across the UK. For some lucky people this means the actual ticket is even cheaper than the £99 offer. Oh and students even get a discount!
“Approximately 80% of harmful emissions from festivals come from car travel and whilst it might look good for us to throw up the odd windmill here and there, the positive impact of this is marginal when compared to the improvements we can make by cutting car travel.
“To help our customers make the transition from car to coach we’ve come up with this amazing early bird offer and want as many people to ‘Go Green’ and travel free from any major city in the UK at our expense.
“RockNess will also be fully endorsing car share schemes to help people who have no choice but to come by car reduce their carbon footprint, and there will be car parking offers available nearer to the show.”
