The organisers of a popular food and music festival in Bucks apologised to buyers after 'huge demand' caused its ticket website to crash this morning. 

Since the announcement of Pub in the Park Marlow's full headliner line-up, anticipation for Tom Kerridge's annual celebration of all things food and music has reached a fever pitch.

The four-day long event will kick off on Thursday, May 16, 2024, bringing big names including Busted, Paloma Faith and Scouting for Girls to the Higginson Park mainstage for what a representative described as its "biggest year yet".

An unprecedented number of early-bird buyers signed up for Pub in the Park pre-sale ticket access this morning (November 1), causing a Taylor Swift-esque website crash, for which Brand Events, the company behind the festival, has issued an apology on its social media platforms.

Before the sale went live, Brand Events unveiled the tiers of tickets up for grabs, including a brand new Pitmasters Bar pass, which comprises a 'British Afghan BBQ feast', fast-track event entry and pit access in front of the stage.

The new tier is priced at £150 for Thursday, £175 for Friday, Saturday afternoon and Sunday and £200 for Saturday night.

Adults (16+) will alternatively be able to secure an all-access weekend pass for £190 or splash out on its VIP equivalent for £415.

A representative for Brand Events said: "Our new ticketing partner experienced a huge demand this morning as pre-sale tickets went live.

"We've beefed up the back end and the problem should be fixed. Tickets are selling very fast, but all sessions and types are still available.

"Thanks for your amazing support and sorry for any hassle."
