Radio 1 is staging the big weekend free festival at Burton Constable, near Hull, although in truth it is not quite "free".
The event will take place the weekend of 27 May – 28 May 2017 in the grounds of Burton Constable Hall near Hull and for the city's year as City of Culture the big headline act is Katy Perry. The line-up over the weekend also includes Kings of Leon, Little Mix and Stormzy.
Tickets will be available soon;
Booking opens at 9.10am on Monday 10 April and will be handled by Ticketmaster on behalf of BBC Radio 1.
That highlights the first cost.
The second cost comes by way of transport. Access to the site will only be via park and ride or a shuttle bus at a cost of £13 per person.
And if you use the park and ride service to park your car at one of the areas in Hull you will have to stump up a further £7.50 per car.
Organisers claim the access limits to the site are for safety reasons. There will be no drop off points available at Burton Constable.
For regular theatre and festival goers the costs may be acceptable but for local people who are struggling on a tight budget they are still too high.
But at least this time local people may have a better chance of getting a ticket if they have the cash.
With 50,000 tickets available organisers are still warning tickets are usually oversubscribed and if you want get tickets you will need to act fast.
The advice is go online to get tickets. If you do not have Internet access you can ring 0844 453 9012.
Burton Constable, Skirlaugh, Hull HU11 4LN is worth a visit in its own right. Described online as "East Yorkshire's finest historic day out, proudly supporting Hull City of Culture 2017" check it out.
Posting this reminds me that the last time I visited Burton Constable Hall was many years ago, either in the late 1960s or early 1970s. The headline act was the rock band Free. It was a heady, noisy affair very much of the day. There was almost a tragedy as we were pushed along through a tunnel with police and sniffer digs at one end. Well is was the era of sex and drugs and rock and roll.
It was a great event however.
