 Win a pair of tickets to Glastonbury 2020

Tickets for Glastonbury 2020 sold out in just 34 minutes this morning, but if you missed out, there’s already a competition you can enter for one last chance.

‘Glastonbury 50’, the official book celebrating the festival’s 50th anniversary, is set to be released on 31st October.

The first copies arrived at Worthy Farm last Friday and to mark the launch later this month Waterstones are giving away a pair of tickets in a prize draw.

Anyone who pre-orders a copy of Glastonbury 50 from before midnight on Wednesday 30th October will be entered into the competition for two general admission Glastonbury 2020 tickets.

Waterstones currently have Glastonbury 50 priced at £24.99 with free delivery or store collection available. An exclusive edition signed by organisers Michael and Emily Eavis, priced at £30, has now sold out.

Emily Eavis said: “Working on this book has been a fantastic project for me and my dad in the fallow year and in the build-up to this year’s Festival. With our 50th anniversary fast approaching, we felt now was the time to put all of our memories and stories together in one place.

“It’s been a total joy to look back through piles of old photo albums and scrapbooks and to reflect upon what it meant at the time, and the incredible evolution of the event. I hope people who’ve been over the years will be able to reminisce and get a flavour of the rich history of Glastonbury through five amazing decades.

“It’s also been a real honour to have had so many great writers, artists and photographers willing to get involved in helping us to give the full picture.”

Tickets for Glastonbury Festival’s 50th anniversary in 2020 sold out in just 34 minutes this morning after going on sale at 9am. Tickets packaged with coach travel sold out in 27 minutes on Thursday night.

This was slightly faster than last year when tickets sold out in 36 minutes and coach package tickets sold out in 29 minutes. It’s not the fastest they’ve ever sold out though – tickets for Glastonbury 2015 sold out in just 26 minutes.

Organiser Emily Eavis said demand was higher than ever as the official Glastonbury Twitter account confirmed tickets had sold out at 9:34am.

50 pairs of tickets will be sold in a “special ballot” with details to be announced soon.

For the first time this year, those that bought coach tickets will be given priority when booking Worthy View pre-pitched accommodation.
