This event has now passed and tickets are no longer available.


Brainchild Minibuses from Uckfield & Lewes Stations are now on sale here:

You need to buy your ticket in advance as they won't be available on the day!

A word from us:

After a lot of consideration, we've decided to postpone Brainchild Festival by one month, to 6-8th August 2021. We wanted so much for our original July weekend to work, but for a multitude of reasons, these new dates will give us the best possible chance of delivering an uncompromised Brainchild.

Hopefully you will have seen the statements on our channels (please read in full here), so you're aware that in order to purchase a ticket for Brainchild Festival 2021 you must agree to new terms, that mean only half of your ticket will be refundable in the event of a Covid-19 cancellation, and the other half is something new: a non-refundable 'Crowd Cover Pledge'.

This non-refundable pledge is our radical collective solution to the unavailability of Covid cancellation insurance, and it's the essential key we need to continue planning from this point on. This is our way of entering into a transparent understanding with you that if a Covid curveball (e.g. a new lockdown or sudden change in restrictions) forced us to cancel late in the day, we would only be able to refund half of your money, given that the other half will have already been spent on essential deposits & pre-event work.

You must purchase the £60 Admission Fee with this £60 Crowd Cover Pledge for your Brainchild 2021 ticket to be valid, and you must read & agree to our new Terms & Conditions.

Our new dates are 6 whole weeks after we're due to fully unlock, and in the (most likely) scenario of the festival going ahead, you'll be attending for exactly the same cost and will have played an integral part in making the festival happen. 

We realise this is a lot to ask, and we understand that this may not be possible for everyone, but these are far from normal times and we wouldn't ask if we could see any other way through this. 

Other transport options like minibuses & coaches will be available to purchase soon, we'll notify you when they are. You can also pick up a Jerkcurb x Brainchild pin at checkout (see pic below)!

All our love,

Brainchild HQ
