Tickets are on sale now, frozen at 2008 prices all 28 February. That means a weekend camping pass is available for £129, while students can get tickets for £110.

The festival has introduced a deposit scheme this year, which means Chillers can put down £50 by 28 February to secure a pass, but they must pay the remainder of the balance by 31 March.
