Found 26th Jun 2014
A friend sent me this on Facebook and I thought I'd share.

An unbelievable price, a bargain at £2.50 each.

A part of the "Friends & Family General Admission package"

Normally £65 each, these tickets get you entry into the Barclaycard British Summertime event at Hyde Park on Friday 4th July to see Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Soundgarden, Wolfmother, Soulfly & Faith No More

EDIT: Thanks to ravenheart for pointing out that you can just buy one for £2.50, seems like my excitement got the better of me and I read it wrong.

Amazing!!!!!!

Bought one 45 minutes ago for a mate; still waiting for the actual digital ticket to arrive.

It's a limit of four per person, you don't have to buy four. I just bought one.

this is gonna get HOT

Do you have to buy a normal priced ticket to buy these cheaper tickets, or will this get you in on its own?

Hmm ,gotta be a catch. It's a friends and family ticket. so presumably only certain people should be able to buy these?

otherwise the link would be shown on the proper website

My god you've made my girlfriend happy without her knowing!! Be a nice surprise next week!

Just got this on the off chance, but I am a bit sceptical, just seems too good

So family ticket, if there are two adults and one child, that would be 3 tickets or is a friends and family ticket multiple people on tickets?

AimeeLou does this mean our tickets wont be valid?!

How was this found sounds to good to be true . Surely they will want proof of family and friends ?

Just to let you know, this is ONLY for FRIENDS and FAMILY of someone who … Just to let you know, this is ONLY for FRIENDS and FAMILY of someone who is working there!! Only found out as my friend works for AXS x



How would they know though?

This is going to turn into a total disaster! There's no way these are so easily available for just £2.50 each. Not worth the risk of turning up and being told I can't come in!

I think the tickets are only for people who work for AEG or AXS. Purely guessing by them being called friends and family, and the link for them mentions AEG and AXS as affiliates, whereas the 'normal' ticket pages dont.

I went to a couple of the days of this last year, tickets were free on a similar deal. Got in no problems. Heat

You have to go in with the person that works there (and has a valid lanyard).

Even the link has "STAFF" in it!

I've just ordered and paid for mine - will they check if I know someone working there when we get there??? Thanks

So, they've let the link slip out, do they poll the hundreds of people who have just bought tickets (myself included) to see if they are related to one of the workers, or do we get a refund or what?

Cripes, worth a try though. I'm already at another festival that weekend, otherwise would have a couple of Neil Young tickets.

Shouldn't they be working?:p

GUYS THESE TICKETS WILL NOT WORK AS GENERAL ADMISSION. YOU MUST BE A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER OF SOMEONE WHO WORKS FOR THE COMPANY SUPPLYING THE EVENT

Yes as you need that person with you to prove it

Someone's getting sacked tomorrow lol

Oh we'll that's a fiver down the drain then lol! N'mind

This really needs to be voted cold then, as I didn't see the link (on my mobile) and foolishly assumed this was a 'get them through the door' technique. I don't really mind about the tenner, but this 'deal' needs to be forcibly expired.

Thought this was a glitch. I guess just lost £10

Oops sorry dual post from me

Surely if these were not for public sale they would need a staff log in to purchase? It seems strange you can log in with a normal customer account/Facebook and make a purchase if they're not for public sale.

I'm going to try and cancel the purchase with AXS or tell the credit card company the purchase was in error.

Thanks for expiring this deal, mods. Hopefully we all

Hopefully we all get an update in the morning.

Surely the person who works there is WORKING?!?!

If your 'friend' is working for AXS etc couldn't they be working there?

To good to be true .. My little sister will be gutted. Never know they may just honour it with the amount of people that have just bought tickets . See what the morning brings

HOT. Ordered 4 tickets. Thanks Joe

fingers crossed this doesnt end up being a bum deal. I'd hate to travel all that way to get turned down at the gate!
