York Festival organisers have today launched an Ambassador Scheme which allows music fans to earn free tickets and exclusive money-can’t buy gig experiences.
Global icon Lionel Richie, pop superstars Westlife and British music legends Madness will headline next summer’s brand-new live music festival staged at York Sports Club between Friday June 19th and Sunday June 21st.
And York Festival organisers – concert promoters Cuffe and Taylor – have today unveiled a dedicated Festival Ambassador Programme.
By becoming a York Festival Ambassador you will be able to earn:
- Free tickets
- A backstage tour for you and two friends
- Side of stage access for an act for you and a friend
- Drink tokens
- The chance to win a ‘Top Seller Prize’ of four x VIP tickets and drinks for your group
The Programme works on a points-based system whereby the more festival tickets an Ambassador sells the more points they earn. These points can then be redeemed for free tickets and rewards.
Cuffe and Taylor director Peter Taylor said: “We run successful ambassador schemes at many of our events and festivals across the UK.
“They are a great way for people to get involved with the Festival, to not only secure free tickets but also exclusive access such as watching a set from the side of stage. These really are things that money cannot buy.
“We are really excited about York Festival. It’s going to be three amazing days of live music in this historic city – headlined by a host of global stars. We would love local people to get involved and become an Ambassador.”
