Final tickets for CarFest 2015 to go on sale

Published 29 April 2015

The final tickets for CarFest – summer’s fast and furious fun-fuelled family festivals – are about to go on sale.

Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2 DJ and the inspiration behind the two motoring and music-themed extravaganzas, will release the last batch at 8am tomorrow (Thursday, 30 April) morning during his award-winning Breakfast Show.

Evans again will host for both events – CarFest North (Oulton Park, Cheshire, 31 July-2 August) and CarFest South (Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire, 28-30 August) – with the promise of music and motors… plus some tasty festival food and eye-catching family fun thrown in for good measure.

Now entering its fourth season, the two shows are packed with even more features aimed at inspiring and amazing those of all ages.

New additions include: goalfest, stunt school, the beach (complete with deck chairs), a vintage village, plus many more surprises still to be announced. The car content has been revved up, too. Track stars this year will include everything from Batmobiles and beach buggies to historic F1 racers and the very latest supercars.

But to join the party, festival-goers will need to move quickly by logging onto the official website tomorrow morning.

When the first batch of tickets went on sale in November they sold out almost instantly. Individual day tickets – priced from £60 for adults – are also available if you miss out on the limited number of remaining £142 weekend camping tickets.

As ever, CarFest will be raising money for BBC Children in Need with a minimum of 25 per cent of all ticket revenues going directly to the charity.

Now in its fourth year, CarFest has already donated more than £3.5 million to Children in Need.

Full details of both 2015 CarFests – including the bands performing which this year include The Boomtown Rats, Seasick Steve, Texas and Paloma Faith – can be found on the official website
