The soaring cost of tickets for music festivals is leading to fans travelling overseas to cheaper events, according to research by a money saving website.

A poll found that nearly a third (32%) of music fans now attend fewer festivals than they did in the past, while more than two-thirds admitted they would consider going to a European festival rather than one in the UK, with more than half (58%) of these citing ticket prices as their main reason while nearly a quarter (24%) also said the greater chance of good weather was a major factor.
