Applications for Leeds Festival Resident Tickets
The Barwick-in-Elmet and Scholes Community Fund Committee exists to improve the community in which we all live. We work with residents, groups, associations, organisations or committees from within the parish of Barwick-in-Elmet and Scholes, as well as with Festival Republic whose generosity provides for the fund.

Each year Festival Republic, the organisers of the Leeds Festival, donate tickets to the parish of Barwick-in-Elmet and Scholes (see About Us for more information about Festival Republic). These are full weekend tickets, with access to the VIP area and VIP campsite. Festival Republic dictate that these tickets should be sold - for £45 each - to residents of the parish of Barwick-in-Elmet and Scholes only. Resident tickets bear the name of the resident to whom they are allocated and cannot be transferred to any other individual.

After the 2011 Leeds Festival the Community Fund committee was formed and, in time for the 2012 event, the resident members of the committee negotiated with Festival Republic to increase the allocation of resident tickets from the previous total of 56 to the current 250. 

Applications for resident's Leeds Festival tickets are OPEN FOR 2021. Please read the below before applying.


Terms and Conditions:

Applications are strictly for residents of Barwick in Elmet and Scholes parish only. All applications will be checked against the electoral register; if you are not registered then proof of residence will be requested.

Should applications exceed 250, a random ballot will then be undertaken. 

In a change to previous years, cheques will not be required at the application stage. 

Successful applicants will be notified of the ballot result, be given a deadline and a unique reference to then make an online payment. 

Once the payment is received by the deadline set, tickets will only then be secured. If cleared funds (with the unique reference) are not received by the deadline, applications will be voided and we will return to the ballot.

A maximum of FIVE applicants are allowed on a group application.

Any group application will be treated in the same capacity in the ballot as a single applicant with one entry number- you will either all be successful of not.

Any multiple entries will be voided and not entered into the ballot.

Due to Coronavirus, ahead of applying residents must also ensure that they are compliant with any terms and conditions of entry set out by the promoters Festival Republic (

Due to Coronavirus, a shuttle bus service from the parish is not guaranteed to run this year. Applicants must work on the assumption that they will provide their own transport to and from site.

Price per weekend ticket is £45.00

Tickets are NOT required for any persons under the age of 13 provided they are accompanied by a valid ticket holder over the age of 18

Any ticket holder aged 15+ will need to be accompanied by a valid ticket holder aged 18 or over to gain site access.
