Whilst it seems that all of the tickets are sold out, Glastonbury has confirmed that you will have two more chances at scoring tickets
The first is to enter the Glastonbury ballot. Enter the ballot to be in with the chance to book one of 50 pairs of tickets which are being released to celebrate 50 years of the festival. You must enter by Thursday 31st October (AKA Halloween) and the ballot will be drawn during the following week.
Or you can try and secure a ticket when re-sale goes live in Spring next year. For coach and ticket packages, the re-sale will happen on Thursday 16th April 2020 which will shortly be followed by a general admission resale on Sunday 19th April 2020.
Alternatively, you can apply to work for a charity at the event (such as Oxfam); a sneaky way of getting into the festival without an official ticket.
Tickets cost £270 per person (including a £5 booking fee). Trust us, it’ll be totally worth it.
Anyone with a current valid registration who didn’t manage to get a ticket for Glastonbury already can enter the ballot.
Organisers have held back 50 pairs of tickets for next year’s event and are selling them to people who are chosen at random for their special ballot.
The ballot opened Wednesday October 9, at 12 noon and will remain open until 5pm on Thursday October 31.
All you have to do is enter your registration number and one other (for your chosen guest) into an entry form at glastonbury.seetickets.com/ballot
Glastonbury Festival takes place on Worthy Farm, in Pilton, Somerset. A location which is technically not in Glastonbury but 6 miles East. (Don’t worry, we feel cheated too.)
The 50th Anniversary of Glastonbury will commence on Wednesday 24th June and finish on Sunday 28th June. It’s tempting to book the dates off of work now (as we’ve already decided that, one way or another, we’re going to get ourselves in).
Taylor left the Glastonbury weekend free in the midst of her tour diary; she’s expressed her excitement to perform at some of the world’s biggest festivals next year. Swift also stated that UK dates for her ‘Lover’ tour will be confirmed shortly. Just admit it Taylor, you’ve been booked for Glastonbury 50.
Rumours have started swirling that the Spice Girls will make an appearance at Glastonbury in 2020 after their successful run of reunion tour performance earlier this year. All we have to say is: Victoria, say you’ll be there.
Paul McCartney recently told Zoe Ball on her BBC 2 Breakfast show that performing at Glastonbury 50 is “starting to become some remote kind of possibility”. Please God, let it be.
A band that has teased being a Glastonbury headline act for a long, long time is The 1975. Matty Healy recently told Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson that whether they do headline or not, he will be attending the festival.
With the success of Rocketman (we’re referring to the film, of course) and the excitement around his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour (which will run up to December 2020), Elton John is trending hard. What better way to wave goodbye to your music career than performing at Glastonbury 50.
Not just your average Joe, Lord Joseph William Furness – lorded by a mate for his birthday (a decision they now live to regret) – struggles to understand a world in which everyone isn’t as blunt, unemotional and sarcastic as him. His mother calls him pretentious because of his materialistic nature; whilst his father tells him that he can’t live in his own ‘dream world’ forever, but he seems to be doing pretty well so far. He plans to write for The Hook until he sees his name in shining lights – a future promised to him by his year 4 primary school teacher. You can contact Joseph at [email protected]Follow
