Glastonbury organisers have revealed when tickets for the festival’s 50th anniversary next year will go on sale.
Coach package tickets will go on sale at 6pm Thursday 3rd October, which sold out in less than half an hour last time around. For the first time this year, coach package ticket holders will be given priority booking for Worthy View accommodation when it goes on sale later in the autumn.
General admission tickets will then go on sale at 9am Sunday 6th October and will likely sell out in minutes, despite a capacity increase to 210,000 this year.
Tickets will cost £270, including a £5 booking fee. It’s an increase of £17 per ticket from last year.
Only a £50 deposit is payable per ticket in October, with the remaining balance due to be paid off in April 2020. Any tickets for which the balance is not paid will be placed in a resale.
To buy Glastonbury tickets, you’ll need to be registered by 5pm Monday 30th September. If you haven’t registered your address and photo by then, you won’t be able to buy a ticket in October. Nobody else will be able to buy one for you either.
To register, head to GlastonburyRegistration.co.uk. Registration usually reopens ahead of the ticket resale next year.
The ticket sale dates were expected, as coach package tickets have been sold on the first Thursday evening in October for the last five years. General admission tickets have then been sold at 9am the following Sunday.
The coach packages sold on the Thursday include return travel, departing on either the Wednesday or Thursday of the festival, and a weekend Glastonbury ticket. However, you must travel via the booked coach to collect your ticket and access the festival.
Coach package tickets will go on sale at 6pm Thursday 3rd October, with general admission tickets on sale at 9am Sunday 6th October.
Weekend tickets cost £270, including a £5 booking fee per ticket.
Registration closes at 5pm Monday 30th September 2019.
Glastonbury will take place from Wednesday 24th June to Sunday 28th June 2020.
