Unlock access to the biggest festivals

As Glastonbury begins and festival goers will be gearing up to see the likes of Elton John, Lewis Capaldi, Arctic Monkeys and more, many of us will feel like we’re missing out on the excitement due to the disappointment of not getting a ticket.

More than 2 million people missed out on wristbands to Glastonbury last year because of high demand, and with the increased cost of living and prices going up (£340 for Glastonbury this year) many more will no doubt miss out this year.

The love of music (57%), the atmosphere (47%) and the memories (46%) are the main reasons why we love attending live events, but new research reveals more than half of 16- to 34-year-olds regularly or always miss out because of high ticket prices, or tickets selling out too fast.

Coinciding with World Music Day (June 21st), the London College of Contemporary Music (LCCM) want to highlight how pursuing a career in music is a great way to obtain the ultimate backstage pass.

Ryan spoke to Anthony Hamer-Hodges, principal at London College of Contemporary Music (LCCM) and Ryan Doyle, artist & music producer.
