Tickets for the award-winning Buckfest Music Festival go on sale this week with organisers warning people to only buy them from official outlets.
The popular one day festival held in the village of Buckden will be back on Saturday, July 16.
The festival, now in its 12th year, will have increased capacity this summer – catering for 2,400 people – with a fantastic line-up of 20 bands across three stages.
This year's event will be headlined by Rock the 90s, a UK four-piece band who have shared the bill with 90s legends Judge Jules, Artful Dodger, Danny Rampling, Five, Liberty X, S Club 7, K Klass, Ultrabeat and N-Trance.
They have performed live at a host of top festivals including Victorious, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and The Big Chill.
Ticket prices have been held at the same prices as 2021. They cost £13, or £2 for those aged 12 years and under, and will be limited to six tickets per transaction.
