Glastonbury Ticket Sale: Everything You Need To Know
Being the music lovers and, let’s face it, music pioneers that we are, thousands of Scousers descend on Somerset for every Glastonbury Festival – and 2019 will be no different.
With standard tickets set go on sale this Sunday (October 7th) it’s time to get yourself mentally prepared for the online scramble.
The music event, which did not take place this year, will return on June 26 and run until June 30 next year at Worthy Farm in Somerset.
Standard weekend tickets will cost festival-goers £248 each plus a £5 booking fee, an increase of £10 per ticket from 2017.
Glastonbury Festival requires ticket-buyers to register before purchasing, in a bid to tackle touts.
The popular festival, which will include more than 3,000 performances across more than 100 stages, has yet to reveal any of its acts. However, a number of names have been rumoured, including Kylie Minogue and Sir Paul McCartney.
Minogue recently said she would love to fill the headline slot at the festival after having to pull out of the bill more than a decade ago due having treatment for breast cancer.
Earlier this year, festival co-organiser Emily Eavis told BBC Radio 2 that Sir Paul is at the “top of our list” of desired acts.
Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran and Radiohead were last year’s headliners.
Here are our top 5 tips for getting your hands on those all important tickets
1 – BE DEVIOUS WITH YOUR DEVICES
Get as many devices as you can muster fired up and ready to log-on when the ticket sale starts. We’re talking mobiles, laptops, desktops, tablets; the works. If your Ma’s old mobile connects to the internet, we recommend commandeering that too. Sorry, Ma.
2 – WHAT’S ‘APPENING
Set up a What’s App group with your mates and all be hammering tip No.1 at the same time. That way, you’ll know the second that someone has got registration details sorted and you’re away. This is the one time we’d suggest leaving your What’s App group notifications turned on.
3 – GET UP EARLY
We know that it’s Sunday morning and you’ll be trying to get a much needed lie-in but, seriously, get your arse out of bed nice and early to give yourself the best possible chance of getting to Glasto.
4 – DON’T GIVE UP
It can be frustrating playing the waiting game all morning when you’d sooner just go back to bed, we know. Patience is definitely a virtue here though and our recommendation is to keep on trying for tickets until they’re officially sold out.
5 – GET A BIG COFFEE ON THE GO
Tips No.4 and No.5 are going to require some serious discipline. So get yourself a massive coffee ready and get set to rise, shine and ride it out. We wouldn’t put you off putting a little brandy in either – you’ll want to celebrate once your tix are boxed.
