Around £90,000-worth of UK festival tickets ‘go missing’

1000 Live At Loch Lomond tickets go walkies

Around £90,000-worth of tickets to the forthcoming Live At Loch Lamond festival – which is set to feature the likes of The Sex Pistols, Pete Doherty and Happy Mondays on August 2-3 – have gone missing.

Festival organisers have revealed that 1000 tickets went missing while being couriered from ticket outlet Ticketmaster in Glasgow.

When the [package arrived at the company’s dispatch centre in Manchester it was noticed that the packaging was damaged and the tickets were missing.

Organisers, fearing that the tickets will find their way to the black market, have urged fans not to buy tickets from touts.

“We are extremely upset that the tickets have gone missing,” said festival organiser Ricky Magowan on the Live At Loch Lamond website. “We are urging fans NOT to buy tickets unless they are from one of our official ticket outlets listed on our website.

“They would be wasting their money and will be turned away by security if they try and present the ticket at the event. We have increased security at the event to ensure that ticket holders of the missing passes do not gain entry to the event.

“We are hopeful that the missing tickets are recovered and are working with Ticketmaster[b/] and Strathclyde Police to try and get to the bottom of it.”
