    Festival/Concert Tickets

    Advice please. Is it legal to sell on festival tickets at face value.? Due to unforseen circumstances :-( I have one (possibly two) weekend tickets for T in the Park that I dont need. I wouldnt have thought anyone would have a problem if it was non profit transfer. I actually thought there was a website for this type of exchange.

    Any pointers from someone in the know please ..or the right site.

    Cheers.

    read the t&c's on the tickets, then if you are allowed to sell them on, your allowed to list them here as long as they are face value + any fees you would have got e.g. p&p cost + credit card fees (ticketmaster do these fees)

    Yeah they are from Ticketmaster - but they specifically said no refunds cos I did think about handing one back. I did actually think tickets said non-transferable but I know it goes on. I would rather be up front and legit in their sale though. It is getting too close to the gig now to be starting messing with Ticketmaster. Obviously only just got the physical tickets posted out.
