When is Glastonbury Festival 2019?
Glastonbury Festival will take place on 26-30 June 2019.
Where is Glastonbury Festival?
Glastonbury Festival takes place on Worthy Farm, located in the small village of Pilton in Somerset. So yeah, the festival's not actually in Glastonbury, which is seven miles away.
The easiest way to get to Glastonbury Festival is to drive. 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.
How do I get a ticket?
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 can do so here if you are not already. You may book up to six tickets per transaction. Registration will close at 12pm on Monday 1 October.
But be warned, you can expect almost half the population of the UK to be trying for tickets. I like to compare it to how Churchill must have felt planning the Normandy landings, but with fewer maps and more WhatsApp groups.
That means shape up on who's buying for who, and let each other know whenever someone has secured tickets. The system won't let you retry if you try to buy for someone who has already got a ticket. Trust me, I've found out the hard way.
How much are tickets?
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.
When does the lineup come out?
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.
Is Festicket a partner of Glastonbury Festival?
Unfortunately not. All tickets sold to Glastonbury are done so exclusively through See Tickets. Be wary of other sites offering tickets to the festival as these will almost certainly be fake.
