The UK's most famous music and performing arts festival
Glastonbury Festival is one of the world's most famous music and performing arts festivals. Embracing each and every genre across the spectrum, from rock and pop, to minimal house, techno and full-throttle drum 'n' bass, music-lovers flock to its spiritual fields down in Somerset.
Famed for its huge headline sets on its hallowed Pyramid Stage, which has recently played host to the Arctic Monkeys, Rolling Stones, Kanye West and Radiohead, it's the other side of the festival that really sets the heart racing. Take a stroll through Shangri-La – the festival's night time district – and you'll be thrown into a themed world full of immersive theatre and shenanigans, soundtracked by electronic music's finest and underground names.
Or just up the path there's Arcadia, the sprawling spider-like, flame-throwing structure, open to only the most hardcore ravers, or the more cosier circus and cabaret field, where some of the country's best comedians come together with drag queens and trapeze magicians.
Tickets will be going on sale in early October. Coach + ticket packages will go on sale at 6pm on Thursday 4th October, 2018, with general admission tickets on sale at 9am on Sunday 7th October, 2018.

The lineup will be announced closer to the festival. The last edition was headlined by Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran, with over 100 stages playing host to a variety of musical genres.
A site with a rich spiritual history, Worthy Farm has been the festival's home since its start, but as it has grown in size, it now spreads itself across a few neighbouring farms too.

The ticket sale date for Glastonbury Festival 2019 will take place at the start of October.
Ticket + coach packages will go on sale at 6pm on Thursday 4 October 2018, while general admission tickets will go on sale at 9am on Sunday 7 October 2018. Worth noting though that you will get your ticket on the coach if you purchase a ticket + coach package.
In order to purchase a ticket, you must be registered. You may book up to six tickets per transaction. Registration will close at 12pm on Monday 1 October.
Parking is available on site, however, this will require a fee.
Alternatively, National Express run coaches to and from the festival site from cities across the UK, while the festival also lays on a shuttle service to and from Castle Cary station, which has direct trains to London.
You can also purchase ticket + coach packages, which give you either a single or return journey to the festival from destinations across the UK. These go on sale a few days before the general ticket sale.
All ages are welcome at Glastonbury, with those under 12 being permitted for free with a ticket-holding adult.
Tickets will cost £248 + a £5 booking fee. When purchasing a ticket, you first pay a £50 deposit to secure it. You will then have a week in April 2019 to pay the remaining balance. If you do not, you will be refunded £40.
Those buying ticket and coach packages will need to pay the entire coach ticket upfront.
The lineup usually comes out around late April or early May. It tends to be around the week of balance payments.
2017's festival was headlined by Foo Fighters, Radiohead and Ed Sheeran, with the likes of Boy Better Know, alt-J and The xx also performing.
We're talking thousands of artists across over 100 stages. But believe me, the music is just a tiny part of the Glastonbury experience.
