Ticket sales for Fieldbounce on the rise

People are set to travel miles to come to a music festival in the county with ticket sales coming in from as far away as London.

Fieldbounce Music Festival

Fieldbounce Music Festival, a one day event, will take place at Park Hall, Oswestry on May 5, with acts such as Dappy, Scouting for Girls, Bez from the Happy Mondays and Radio One DJ Danny Howard set to entertain crowds.

Preparation for the event is in full swing so far, with festival organiser Shawn Melusi busy booking more acts, and smoothing over the fine details with just a few months to go.

And Mr Melusi has revealed ticket sales are continuing to increase, with people coming from as far away as the capital.

He said: "Ticket sales are going good, now we are focusing on marketing and being 79 days away people are starting to fully commit.

"A lot of people have not seen the product across Shropshire and with our price so cheap we will attract our target number especially with all the cities that are local.

"Strange enough more sales are coming from London and the south than local at the moment.

"We've had big orders of like 18 VIP tickets from down south, so I am guessing it must be cheaper than down there.

"Also, the line-up is not finish yet, that is a fact."


The festival is also attempting to break a Guinness World Record and raise money for local charities.

Mr Melusi looking to make headlines themselves by breaking a world record, by having the most amount of people dressed in Zebra costumes in one place.

He was inspired by the Kendal Calling Festival in 2013, which had the most amount of Supermen in one place at the same time.

He said: "Beforehand we will be selling Zebra onsies and other outfits to raise money and in total we hope to raise £10,000.

"Then people who come will be about to donate, and for every person wearing one on the day, we will donate £5 to the charity."
