IP1 Live Line-Up Revised and Prices Cut
Friday, 25th May 2018 13:18

Town have revised the line-up and cut the prices for this summer’s two-night music festival IP1 Live due to poor ticket sales. The event, which will take place in the Fanzone, takes place on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th July.

Saturday’s bill, which was due to feature You Me At Six and Circa Waves, has now been completely changed with local acts Samantha Harvey, Underline the Sky, Pop Chorus, Barny Holmes, Undercover, Hot Rocks, JS & the Lockerbillies and Hot Tramp those now set to perform.

The event will now funds for EACH (East Anglia’s Children's Hospices) with tickets £5 for adults and £1 for children.

Eighties stars Alexander O’Neal, The Sugarhill Gang and Furious Five remain the Friday acts but with the ticket price having been cut from £25 to £15 and £1 for children.

Full details can be found on at the IP1 Live website where tickets are on sale.

Why not reach out to Ed Sheeran and ask if he fancies doing a gig at PR? I'm sure being a blue he'd love that. I reckon some of his musical mates like Taylor Swift, Rudimental etc... would support. Can see that being 20,000+ sell out at PR. Alexander O'Neil and The Sugar Hill Gang we are a few decades too late, not really a surprise that there are reported poor sales, tickets prices having to be reduced and the event is being hosted in the Fanzone to accommodate the masses!

All second rate acts with limited appeal and nit surprised at all by this news.

Now when we had Dire Straits,Status Quo etc and bands of that ilk not a problem in selling tickets-----we seem to be doing things on the cheap off the pitch as well now!!

It's a shame that this has failed completely. Hopefully the price cut will help stimulate sales. Charging £25 for Alexander O'Neil was always a bit risky.

I had actually heard of the acts on Saturday but £5 for a bunch of local acts with money going to charity is a good deal.

just a shame they didn't get it right to start with as it looks a bit like a cock up now.

As I understand it Ed Sheeran wants his home to be about being home rather than gigging

Lets be real here... the marketing for this has been awful. You Me At Six are far too big to play for a few hundred people. Their management will have reserved the right to pull out of the ‘festival’ if the sales are poor and they rightly have done so. It was up to the club to market and manage the sales which they’ve had months to do. Unfortunately its just more evidence of the lack of knowledge and investment at Portman Road now. A real shame.

Petersongoal. This shows your lack of knowledge too. This festival is organised by ips borough council but being hosted by itfc. Thus the prices were not set by itfc in the 1st place. Razor. This is a festival in the fanzone area not a gig on the main pitch so to tryto compare it to the previous gigs in the stadium is factually incorrect.

This event has no appeal whatsoever.

No surprise there the lineup was terrible. Sugar hill gang, you me at 6 and circa waves. Massively contrasting audience types there
