2012 Free Ticket For Birthday Offer
The organisers have released the following information:
"It just so happens that Festibelly founders Tom and Andy share their birthday on the August bank holiday weekend (well, that's part of the reason the festival exists...but that's another story), and you'd think that this means unrivalled birthday shenanigans of gargantuan festival proportions, right? Errr... well, what it actually means is that they spend the best part of their birthday putting up tents, hammering stakes and picking up rubbish.
And it's about time things changed! If it's your birthday on the Saturday or Sunday of the Festibelly weekend then they want you to come celebrate. Send Festibelly proof of your date of birth and a picture of you enjoying a fine festival moment of any variety (be it mud bathing or getting your mosh on) and they'll send you a Festibelly Weekend Ticket in return!
