Beware of Unauthorised Ticket Agencies

Organisers of the Reading and Leeds Festivals are warning people of unauthorised ticket agencies after becoming aware of bogus ticket-selling websites claiming to be selling tickets for the 2009 event.

Two websites had been selling what they claimed to be tickets to the events, however festival chiefs said the sites had "no access" to the tickets, which are not on sale anywhere yet.Festival Republic, promoters of the events said in their statement “we wish to make it clear that no tickets are currently available for this year’s festival following the appearance of websites claiming to be selling tickets for this year’s event."The sites [claiming to sell tickets] are not official and have no access to tickets for this year's event. Line-up and ticketing details for the event will be announced in due course and Festival Republic advice is, as ever, to only purchase tickets via official links."
