Ah, Glastonbury. It’s a whole institution at this point, the kind of event that has people preparing weeks, months, even a year in advance. The kind of festival that has people saving up their cash and dipping into their savings. And, yes, Glastonbury is the kind of event where the mere announcement of details on tickets warrants a whole article.
Glastonbury Festival will return to Worthy Farm in 2024, between June 26-30. Just like last year, tickets will go on sale in November, but the initial release date has now been pushed back by two weeks, due to many people not realising their registration numbers had expired. Glastonbury hopefuls will now be able to register for this year’s event again from midday on November 6, until 5pm on November 13.
Those buying ticket and coach packages will now gain access on November 16, at 6 PM BST. Meanwhile, general access tickets will go on sale on November 19 at 9 AM GMT.
Standard tickets are priced at £355, with a booking fee of £5. But you don’t need to pay it all upfront. Securing a ticket requires a (relatively) more affordable £75 deposit per person, with the rest of the balance to be paid off in the first week of April 2024.
Tickets are limited to six per transaction. Before you are able to purchase tickets, you will need to have registered already. So alas, dear reader, if you haven’t done it yet then it’s too late for this year…
Newcomers to the festival would do well to be very aware of ticket scams in the lead-up to the event. As such a hotly-anticipated festival fakes and frauds abound. So always be sure to only get your ticket directly from the official site.
Glastonbury 2023 saw performances from the likes of Elton John, Guns N’ Roses, Arctic Monkeys, Lil Nas X, Lana Del Rey, and more.
So who’s on the line-up for Glastonbury 2024?
No acts have been announced yet for 2024, but in March, festival co-organiser Emily Eavis revealed that 2024 would see two female headliners, with one already booked in.
Among those rumoured to be taking a headline slot are the likes of Coldplay, Rihanna, The 1975, Madonna, Dua Lipa, and Blur. Sadly, with Taylor Swift’s Eras tour continuing on, she won’t be able to take one of the headline slots.
