In order to gain entry into the festival / individual venues, you will need to head to the wristband exchange (operating from the Loading Bay at Salt Market Social directly below our headline venue), to swap your ticket for a festival wristband. This will permit you entry to all venues. Take a peek at the finest local traders, browse the Merch stalls, and prepare for a big day featuring an array of the hottest new artists.

We advise customers to purchase tickets in advance to avoid missing out. But! If tickets don’t sell out there will likely be an allocation available at Wristband Exchange / Box Office… more expensive of course!

A Stone’s Throw Festival is a 14+ event with under 18s having to be accompanied by an adult. ID checks will be carried out at our wristband exchange and also in venues. Please ensure you bring valid ID as you may be refused entry without this. Also please note that all venues hold the right to refuse entry.
