Flying is quickest and (unfortunately) cheapest! The closest Airport is Reus (1 hour drive from the festival site). We are running shuttle busses from Reus Airport to the festival, this will cost 15€ per person each way. Return flights to Reus from London are currently £50.
You could also fly to Barcelona and then take the train from Barcelona to Tortosa (closest station to the site). The trains are ran by Renfe and there are around 6 trains per day on this route.
