For a 50th anniversary, you celebrate with gold; and that’s exactly how Glastonbury plans to celebrate theirs, with Diana Ross confirmed as the first act for Glastonbury 2020.

How do you get Glastonbury tickets? Who else is rumoured to perform at Glastonbury 2020? Where does Glasto take place? We have the answer all of these questions (and more) below.

How can I still get tickets to Glastonbury 50?

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.

How much do Glastonbury tickets cost?

Tickets cost £270 per person (including a £5 booking fee). Trust us, it’ll be totally worth it.

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

Where does Glastonbury take place?

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.)

What dates does Glastonbury 2020 fall on?

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).
