In an unprecedented move, Strawberry Fields have announced a low income ticketing program for their 2017 festival.
A statement on their website reads: ‘We understand that attending camping festivals can be an expensive exercise - tickets, fuel, food, camping equipment, it all adds up and can be particularly challenging if you are a student or on a low income. We want Strawberry Fields to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income.’
Under this scheme 500 tickets have been put aside for those who can prove that they are eligible to be classed as low income earners, with the cost being almost $100 cheaper than what was previously available. Those who apply for the discounted tickets will be assessed based chiefly on their employment status and financial situation.
Strawberry Fields takes place from Thursday November 16-Sunday November 19 in Tocumwal, NSW. For more information head to strawberry-fields.com.au.
