Ticket Information

All tickets for Houghton Festival 2018 are now sold out. No more tickets will be released.

In a stand against the secondary ticket market and ticket touting at extortionate ticket prices, as well as major entry issues due to the risk of duplicate/unofficial tickets, Houghton Festival does not support tickets from 3rd party reseller platforms including ViaGoGo, SeatWave and Ticket Swap.

We work exclusively with our official ticket partner Resident Advisor to provide a fair and authorised method of reselling tickets. This system allows a ticket purchase for the face value of the original sale. Keep visiting our Resident Advisor ticket page as tickets that are resold by previous purchasers will immediately become available.

All ticket holders will require the original buyer, and their ID, to be present at the gate at the time of entry into the festival. The validity of tickets purchased from unapproved 3rd party sites cannot be guaranteed, and the purchase is entirely at your own risk.

If you have a spare ticket, do the right thing.
