Tips and tricks for getting Glastonbury Festival tickets

The main tip to getting Glastonbury tickets is to be extremely organised.

If you want to go to Glastonbury Festival, you have to be registered beforehand. Registration for 2024 ends on 30 September.

If you are already registered, make sure you have the registration details for you and your group handy at the start of the sale, which is on 2 November for coach travel at 9 am on 5 November.  

You will need each person's full name, postcode and registration details.

If you get through you will only be able to purchase a maximum of six tickets at a time.

If there are more than six of you trying, you should decide how to split your group ahead of time, because there will not be time to make decisions once you get through. 

If one person from the group already has a ticket reserved for them when you get through, entering their details again could delay the transaction for the rest of the group.

If you get through, you will have to pay a £50 deposit plus the coach fare if it applies to you - so make sure you have enough money available in your account to cover the entire group.

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

The festival's organisers also advise people not to use multiple devices.

They said: "Every year, the amount of devices trying to connect to the festival’s booking site increases.

"Whilst we understand that everyone wants to have the best possible chance of booking a ticket, running multiple devices simultaneously to attempt to access the website is a waste of valuable resources, and doesn’t reflect the ethos of the festival.

"Please stick to one device and one tab, so that you can focus on entering your details without confusing your browser and help us make the ticket sale as quick and stress-free as possible for all."
