FINAL ticket sales have been brisk for the GoldCoast Oceanfest at Croyde this weekend and the box office is now closed.

Now it is a case of "see you there" with organisers convinced this year promises to be the best ever.

Some tickets may be available for sale on the gate this Friday morning, but there are absolutely no guarantees, because ticket allocation depends on the final number athletes who will be taking part in the three day surf, sport and music festival.

Some travel advice from organisers includes making sure ticket holders get there as close to 10.30am on Friday as possible to collect their festival entry wristbands.

"Travelling down the A361 through Barnstaple and onto Croyde always takes longer than you think and is a very tiring drive, so allow yourselves plenty of time to get to us in one piece," said festival director Warren Latham.

"Over the weekend if you are travelling from outside Croyde do have a designated driver or better still, why not take advantage of the extended bus services running from Barnstaple to Braunton and back again on the Stagecoach Buses 308 route?"

Late buses are running after the Friday and Saturday gigs, but travellers have been advised to get to them by 11.15pm at the latest.

Full festival details, including bus time tables, can be found in last week's GoldCoast wrap published with the North Devon Gazette and online at www.goldcoastoceanfest.co.uk/news.
