Win tickets to iconic Summer festivals with Octoplus

Glastonbury Gusty

We're giving away 13 pairs of summer festival tickets to Octopus Energy customers in Octoplus rewards – and we want you to nominate a deserving Octoplus-one to go!

The grand prize: two tickets to Glastonbury and an EV to get you there.

Summer is just around the corner, and we’ve teamed up with some iconic British festivals to inject some energy into your sunny season 😎

As well as Glasto, there are loads of other great festival tickets to win for family, food and fun at Camp Bestival, Wychwood Festival and Valley Fest. A few lucky winners will get extra-special perks like a bar tab or a luxury tent.

How to enter

For a chance to win, nominate an Octoplus-one who'd love a summer festival trip, and tell us why they deserve it.

  1. Post your nomination on X/Twitter or Instagram
  2. Tag @OctopusEnergy and use the hashtag #OctoPlusOne

Enter by 11.59pm on the 3rd of May. The 13 very best #OctoPlusOne stories will be independently chosen to win the tickets. We'll announce the winners on Tuesday 7th of May.

Nominate your Octoplus-one:

Octoplus-one is all about spreading summer love.

Last year, we needed a few people to go to Glasto to protect Gusty Spinfield while our #1 Fan did her important work powering the food trucks. We offered the spots to our hard-working team.

Octopeople were asked to nominate a colleague, and the result was an utterly heart-warming thread with 200+ shoutouts of love and thanks (see some of them below).

It was all so lovely, we wanted to do the same with our customers on social media.

We've included some of the lovely stories the Octopus team shared below:

Dom came across a vulnerable customer who lost their prepayment key and couldn’t get out to a shop to top up. Dom took it upon himself to go to a shop near him (he doesn’t drive either so extra points there), to top up the customer's account, and then posted it to her next day delivery!

He has done this TWICE now and regularly goes above and beyond for many of our customers.

Meg, Digital Energy Specialist

I would like to nominate Callum. He stayed behind helping an emergency for 2 hours until 7:30 after we had all gone home. Callum is always there to help with any difficult queries and is a credit to our team.

Emily, Energy Specialist

Rachel for calling a very, very vulnerable customer on a Sunday after 10pm who'd gone off supply and managed to not only calm them down but get their supply back up and running again.

Jess, Octopus social media team

Luke because he cooks for the whole office great bread and brownies and he is a data wizard that even gave us a free python course ❤️"

Renata, Octopus Energy Generation

Vee is so patient, she's helped me so much, I am dyslexic and i don't always understand lots of written chunky text, so she will often jump in hangouts and send screen shoots to make sure i understand. I come over from Bulb after Xmas and Vee has made the transition so much easier for me and our team. She's not just amazing with us but customers too.

Leeanne, Energy specialist

Tamia, because, she leads the mental health training courses across the country for Octopus Energy which is something super close to her heart and I believe has made a huge impact in the company for the better.

She trained me when I did the course and was so incredible, creating a safe space and being so vulnerable about her own experiences. Truly inspiring.

Luca, Octopus Marketing

Klarissa doesn't shout about all the things she does for people but I don't know how she finds the time to help everyone.

Laura, Energy Specialist

Craig attended a customer with a heat pump not working in his own time and stayed until gone 7pm to help get the issue resolved without hesitation.

Shaun, Octopus Energy Services

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I nominate someone on social media?


Post on either X/Twitter or Instagram (it can be a tweet, Instagram feed post, comment under one of our posts or reel).

Which festivals are you giving tickets away to?


We've got 13 pairs of tickets to give away:

  • 1 pair of Glastonbury tickets
  • 4 pairs of Valley Fest tickets
  • 4 pairs of Wychwood Festival tickets
  • 4 pairs of Camp Bestival tickets (winners can choose either Dorset or Shropshire locations).

How will you choose the winners?


We want the tickets to go to people who truly deserve a break and a boogie under the sun, so we're looking for the loveliest stories and reasons why someone should win.

The winners will be chosen by an independent third party.

Who can enter the competition, and who can attend the festival?


You can enter the competition as long as you're an Octoplus rewards member (find out what this means here). The special person you're nominating can be anyone, they don't even need to be an Octopus customer. 

If you win, it's up to you whether you take your nominee as your plus-one, or gift them both tickets. We'll ask winners to confirm names for the tickets and you won't be able to transfer them after that point.

Each festival has their own rules about who can attend, so check out their websites as well as the information below.

Can I change the attendees after I win the tickets?


We'll contact the winners to say you've won and to get the names for the tickets. After that, they're non-transferrable so you won't be able to change the attendees.

Does my Octoplus-one nominee have to be an Octopus Energy customer?


Nope, it can be anyone – just make sure they're eligible to go to the festival based on each one's own rules (Glasto, for example, both attendees must be 18+. Check the festival website and T&Cs for more info.)

What if I don't have social media?


No worries - you can enter via this quick online form instead.

Do I have to take my nominated plus one if I win?


If you win, you can either take your nominee with you to the festival as a plus one, or gift them both tickets.

If I'm chosen as the winner, can I pick which festival I go to?


If you've got a preference, do add it into your entry post and we'll do our best to accommodate.

We'll reach out to each winner and let them know which festival tickets they've won – if you don't get the one you want, let us know and we'll do our best to swap where possible but we've only a limited number of each.
