Those eagerly awaiting news of Glastonbury 2020 tickets can breath a temporary sigh of relief, as the festival has confirmed that coach and ticket packages will go on sale Thursday 3 October and tickets-only on Sunday 6 October.
Glastonbury is renowned for its lottery-like ticketing process, with thousands of eager punters painstakingly refreshing the festival's website each autumn in hopes of landing onto the shop page, such is the draw of such a cultural institution. Indeed, 2020 will see the festival celebrate its 50th anniversary, which will no doubt only increase its demand. All hopeful attendees (over the age of 12) must make sure to register. Even if you've registered before in the past it's recommended to double check it's still valid, as you won't be able to buy a ticket without valid registration.
The 50th anniversary of Glastonbury will take place from 24 - 28 June 2020 at its home on Worthy Farm, Somerset.
Tickets will cost £265 per person + £5 booking fee. There will be another chance for those unsuccessful the first time round to snag a ticket in the official resale in April (date TBC).
Though the lineup is usually not announced until after the resale, talk of potential headliners have already began to circulate, from Fleetwood Mac to Foals – here's our two cents on the matter.
