Creamfields, the dance music event, was found to be the most cost-effective, with a ticket costing £220, which is a saving of more than £4,000 on seeing each of its 223 acts on separate occasions.

V Festival was the least cost-effective festival to visit, with attendees saving just £842 as they watched 41 acts perform.
