Outlook Festival helps fans with cost-of-living discount

Outlook Festival is offering a ‘pay-what-you-can’ ticketing scheme ahead of its upcoming event in the UK. 

The festival is set to debut in the UK in Cheshire, and will run from June 30 until July 3. The flagship Origins event is in Tisno, Croatia and will run between July 28 and August 6.

Organisers have said that amid the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, fans will now have the chance to apply for discounted tickets at varying rates. Organisers acknowledged that music fans may not be able to afford a full-price ticket because of the current economic climate.

In posts across social media, Outlook said: “We believe in doing what we can to make music and events accessible to as many people as possible.”

The post also said that as independent promoters, Outlook felt the impact from the economic challenges, but felt that it was more important to bring together an audience and celebrate music.

“This year, the increased cost of living is making attending events a challenge for many people and with the launch of our first UK festival, hosting our community feels more important than ever,” the post said.

The statement added: “With this in mind, we offer the opportunity to apply for a discount for our events proportionate to what you can afford.

“We ask for your honesty and support of one another and that you only apply if you genuinely cannot afford the current full-price ticket.”

Acts at the inaugural Outlook Festival include Ghetts, Skream, Fabio & Grooverider and The Outlook Orchestra, and Alicai Harley.
