Keswick Mountain Festival is a pick n’mix approach to buying tickets. Some people want to do sports, others not so; some wish to come for the weekend, others just want to come along for the day; some want to come for just music, and others just to listen to speakers. Therefore, the pick n’ mix approach allows customers to build their own festival experience by choosing exactly what they want.
Please note, sports tickets include access to live music and festival village activities for one day of your choosing.
