Fieldbounce: Oswestry music festival ticket sales hit 5,000
Organisers of a county music festival are half way to their target of selling 10,000 tickets.
Fieldbounce Music Festival bosses are looking to sell 10,000 tickets for the show piece on May 5, which will see the likes of Radio One DJ Danny Howard and Scouting for Girls playing to crowds.
Festival CEO Shawn Melusi has confirmed ticket sales are now well over the 5,000 mark and are continuing to climb.
He insists a lot of the ticket sales have come from outside the Oswestry area.
However he and his team have events organised in the coming weeks to bring the local punters in.
He said: "I'm happy with how it has all been going, we've hit 5,000 now which is half way.
"We have opened the remaining tickets online then we will then just have pop up shops, if you go the ticket site you will see the remaining ones.
"We still haven't had a lot of local people buying tickets, most of them have been coming in from a bit further afield.
"We just announced the Buttermarket in Shrewsbury as being one of the first after parter venues and then Oswestry and Wrexham will be next."
In recent weeks the plans have been snowballing, despite already having a packed line-up that will feature the likes of Bez from the Happy Mondays.
A comedy tent is now set to take place with a line-up of well known young comedians, as well as a dance competition in the day for local schoolchildren.
Organisers are also holding their world record attempt, the get the most amount of people in zebra costumes in one place at any one time.
The case is Hope House Children's Hospice, with a section of the funds raised from the world record attempt going to the charity.
