V2000 organisers have announced free rail travel will be made available from anywhere in the country on VIRGIN TRAINS to the Staffordshire leg of the festival.

To be entitled to free transport, festival goers need to book a weekend ticket with camping for the event, which takes place at Weston Park, Staffordshire on August 19 and 20.

Ticket holders are then entitled to free rail travel from anywhere in the country on the Virgin Rail network, by calling the V2000 Train Line on 0115 912 9198.

The other leg of this year’s V2000 festival takes place Hylands Park, Chelmsford. Tickets for both the events are priced #66 for the weekend, and #76 for the weekend, including camping. Day tickets are also available for both days, priced #37.50.
