I bought 12 x V festival tickets last year.
Made a very tidy profit selling them on ebay the day after. (almost double)
Then went V on the day without a ticket and bought one off a 'tout' outside for less than original ticket cost price.
Twat? or good business sense
No mate that how I always did it.
V97 (Prodigy, Mansun etc) it was roasting hot and we went to Argos, bought a tent and bought face value ticket outside.
V98 (Verve) bit wet but still doable, did same thing.
V99 I think it was, peed it down and one of the acts pulled out so didn't bother. If we'd have bought in advance we'd have been screwed.
