There are few things more anxiety-inducing than trying to buy Glastonbury tickets and 2024’s festival is no exception – even more so now that the ticket resale date has been announced.

Passes for this year’s fest first went on sale in late 2023 and quickly sold out. A line-up reveal followed, leaving many keen to get their hands on the limited number of resale tickets that are set to go back on sale this April.

If this sounds like you, don’t worry. There’s still one more chance to try for tickets before headliners Coldplay, Dua Lipa and SZA take to the stage at Worthy Farm in June.

General admission tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2024 went on sale in November 2023 and are now sold out. Competition for tickets is fierce each year and to add to the difficulty, people needed to pre-register on the official Glastonbury website.

While this sounds a little bleak, don’t despair just yet.

A limited number of cancelled or refunded tickets will become available during a planned resale in April with coach tickets going on sale at 6pm BST on Thursday, 18 April and general admission tickets going on sale at 9am BST on Sunday, 21 April.

A limited number of returned accommodation tickets will go on sale at 11am on Sunday, 21 April. These include campervan or caravan tickets, luxury camping options like Worthy View or off-site camping in Sticklinch.

The option to put down a deposit will not be available during the resale. Instead, would-be festival goers must pay the ticket balance in full. However, before they can do this, they also must be registered. To do this, head here.

Everyone over the age of 13 will also get a registration number that needs to be used to buy tickets, so if you're buying for a group, you’ll need everyone’s registration number.

Registrations must include a picture of yourself at the correct size with the correct background. This is to guard against selling on and touts, as your photo will be featured on your ticket if you’re lucky enough to get one.

Those who have registered in previous years and since 2010 should already have a valid registration number, although registrations from before 2010 have been deleted and you’ll also need to ensure your photo still looks like you.

Once tickets go on sale, you’ll need to get in quick to secure them, so make sure you’re ready and waiting on more than one device for the sale to open to give yourself the best chance of buying tickets.

Tickets for Glastonbury 2024 will cost £355 plus a £5 booking fee. Additional postage/delivery fees may be added onto your bill before check out.

When is Glastonbury 2024?

The event will take place between Wednesday 26 and Sunday 30 June.

The festival takes a break, also known as a fallow year, once every five years to allow Worthy Farm’s fields time to recover. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival took an extended break after 2019’s event, missing 2020 and 2021’s editions but returning in 2022.

It’s set to go ahead in 2025 – and for a few years after that, too, before another break.
