Last year they sold out in just over 30 minutes…

Coach packages for Glastonbury 2020 go on sale at 6pm today, for next year’s 50th incarnation of the festival, and general admission tickets at 9am on Sunday 6th October.

Last year they sold out in just over 30 minutes, so if you want to ensure your coveted spot at Worthy Farm next June then you’d better have a strategy.

First of all - if you haven’t registered by now, you won’t be able to get Glasto tickets…sorry. Introduced in 2007, the registration process requires users to submit a passport-style photo of themselves, which is then checked at the festival gate if they are lucky enough to get a ticket. This is intended to prevent tickets being resold for inflated prices, as well as being a security measure.

You’ll need the registration number and postcode for each person for whom you are booking a ticket.

Tickets will be on sale at glastonbury.seetickets.com and will cost £265 per person (plus £5 booking fee), of which a £50 deposit (plus coach fare if booking a coach package) is payable when booking in October, with the balance payable in the first week of April 2020.

You can book up to six tickets per transaction by paying a deposit of £50 per person when tickets go on sale (plus the coach fare, if you are booking a coach package).

UK tickets can now be purchased with a UK debit card or Visa or Mastercard credit cards, while international tickets can only be bought with Visa credit card or Mastercard credit card.

 

 

Festival organisers advise hopeful Glasto-goers to only use one tab to buy tickets and not to use multiple devices. “Attempting to book tickets online using multiple browser tabs can confuse the ticket sales process and cause your transaction to fail,” their website states.

“We strongly advise that you use just one browser tab when trying to book tickets, in order to avoid possible problems with your transaction.”

Some people us a different tactic to bag a much-coveted ticket: rather than opening multiple browsers, they pay other people to go online and book tickets for them. You can earn at least £50 a time as a professional ‘queuer’, through a service launched by Bark.com to help registered Glasto hopefuls secure tickets if they don’t have the time or ability to go online and buy tickets themselves.

It’s also the time of year that people take to Twitter to show the extremes they’ll go to for tickets, to vent their frustration with the process, or even straight-up plead for help - one user is hoping to bag tickets for his honeymoon, as the festival is a few days after his wedding day.

If you miss out on tickets when they go on sale, remember that you might get a second chance cancellations will be made available for resale at face value via the Festival’s authorised ticket agency, See Tickets.

Good luck Glasto-lovers!
