Following this morning’s news that The Wanted has become the highest charting UK boy band in the US charts ever, Luton Borough Council is reminding people that there are discounted family tickets still available for this summer’s spectacular Love Luton 2012 Festival.

 With such diverse line ups for the two performances at Popes Meadow catering to a wide variety of music tastes, organisers decided to offer group tickets at reduced prices to encourage families to come along and enjoy the entertainment together.

 A family ticket to the Friday 6 July performance featuring The Wanted, Lawson, Aisling O’Reilly, Bradley Johnson and SW Storm is just £110, working out at just £27.50 per ticket.

 A family ticket to the longer performance on Saturday 7 July featuring Olly Murs, Skepta, Sway, Mz Bratt and Lady Leshurr is just £120, working out at just £30 per ticket.

Cllr Simmons said: “The Love Luton 2012 Festival is set to be the most spectacular event in Luton ever and we have ensured that it will be family-friendly by catering for all cultures, ages and music tastes in a safe and enjoyable environment.

 “This makes it a fantastic opportunity for all the family to attend and I would like to remind people that the early bird family ticket offer is only available until 7 April, so make sure you get in quick.

 “The last thing I want is for people to miss out so I encourage you to go to to buy your tickets and avoid disappointment as we are not anticipating selling any tickets on the days.”
