SUPER early bird tickets for next summer's Standon Calling music festival have sold out in record time - but more weekend passes have gone on sale.
The boutique festival returns to the Hertfordshire countryside near Ware from Friday, August 3 to Sunday, August 5, 2012.
And all of this year’s super early bird passes have sold out in less than a week.
However, with them all gone, the generous folk at Standon Calling have now released a limited amount of early bird tickets at the price of just £85 – nearly half the price of some other festivals on the circuit.
“This is the fastest any Standon Calling early bird tickets have sold out ever, and we’re anticipating similar demand for the next batch of tickets,” said production director Graham MacVoy.
“Hopefully this shows that people who came last year had such a good time that they wanted to guarantee they were at next year’s party.”
Over the years Standon Calling has established a track record for booking top-notch acts, often just before they make the big time.
The likes of Mumford and Sons, Brit Award winners Florence and the Machine and St Albans trio Friendly Fires all performed at the festival months before smashing the music charts.
Festival organisers plan to announce Standon Calling’s annual theme in early 2012.
In signature style, the theme will take over the whole festival site at Standon Lordship with interactive theatre, art installations and the ever-more impressive costumes the crowd dream up.
In a new development, and in response to festival-goers’ requests to really go to town with a party on the Friday night, 2012 will see Standon take it back to the old school by opening with a rave.
The UK’s only festival with a swimming pool, Standon Calling is a three-day party with musical icons, breakthrough acts, themed fancy dress, an on-site nightclub and bars that never seem to close.
