Hi I have attended the EP each year since 2005 and this year I did not receive advance/early bird email advising the code I can use to buy early tickets at a discounted rate.
Can you please advise why this is the case? A number of my friends did not get a loyalty offer either.
Thanks
J

You'd be better asking about this on the EP Facebook page. This site is actually set up to keep us away from there.

If you want to stay and chat about football, tv, music or having a poo on a traffic island, you're welcome to stay :thumbs:

Hi Jim,

Unfortunately, due to planning regulations, we will be operating at a reduced capacity for Electric Picnic 2016. As a result, we have already reached our allocation for early bird tickets and only those revelers who paid for boutique camping at EP 2015 have been offered tickets at a reduced price for next year.

Roll on September!

Regards,
Jake

Delighted to hear that the capacity will be lower 47,000 last year you could feel the difference. Any idea of numbers this year?

We are going back to our roots and expect capacity to be around 21000. 50% have already been snapped up in early bird and press tickets

That would be absolutely amazing if it was only 21,000 I got all excited at the thought of that... so went looking for confirmation, found a link from a week ago which conflicts this. Fingers crossed you are correct about going back to your roots, I will be pleasantly surprised if it was 21,000 and not the 55,000 the article suggests.
