MUSIC fans from across Cheshire are being given the chance to win VIP passes to this year’s Whatfest music festival.
Anyone booking a ticket for the three-day event before July 10 will now be automatically entered into a draw to win one of 100 VIP passes, which offer access to the backstage areas, and a chance to meet the bands.
The festival lasts from Friday-Sunday July 17-19, and more than 10,000 people are expected to descend on Riverside Organic Farm in Whatcroft over the weekend.
Organiser Simon Bennett said: “The response we’ve had has been phenomenal. There has been so much support for Whatfest – wherever I turn people are talking about it.
“We have music fans coming from all over the country, so we are expecting a huge turnout.
“One of the main reasons for starting Whatfest was to bring great music to Cheshire, and it would be devastating for us if local fans missed out by waiting to get tickets on the day.”
Tickets start at £44 for a weekend pass and £18.50 for a day ticket. You can book online at www.whatfest.co.uk.
