The Rize Festival (which has replaced the V Festival) is taking place from 17 to 18 August 2018.
Essex residents will be able to buy tickets before they go on general sale to the public.
If you live within 3 miles of Hylands Park, you will be able to buy tickets from 9am on Thursday 1 March.
If you are an Essex resident, you will be able to buy tickets from 10am on Thursday 1 March.
There are a limited number of tickets available in both of these allocations and you are not guaranteed a ticket. However, you are only competing with other Essex residents, rather than the whole of the country.
If you are not successful in buying tickets in the pre-sale, you can still buy tickets when they go on general sale at 9.30am on Friday 2 March via www.ticketmaster.co.uk/rizefestival
You are eligible to buy tickets in the pre-sale event if your postcode is recognised as an Essex address by Royal Mail. If you live in Romford or Ilford, your postcode may not be eligible, due to Royal Mail's county boundaries.
You can check your postcode to see if it is in Royal Mail's Essex boundaries.
