The date for the Glastonbury 2017 ticket resale has been announced

Missed out on Glasto tickets first time round? You've got another chance coming up soon

Thousands of people experience Glastonbury heartbreak every year when they fail to get tickets for the legendary festival.

It’s always a scramble to try and bag a pass for Britain’s biggest festival, with many more people left disappointed than actually buying tickets.

However, thanks to the way the Glastonbury ticketing system works, there’s another chance to buy tickets, and good news: it’s right around the corner.

On Sunday April 23, you’ll get another stab at buying tickets in the Glastonbury ticket resale, with a coach package going on sale a few days before, on Thursday April 20.

A post on the official website reads:

Following the closure of the seven-day ticket balance payment window for those who paid a deposit for tickets in the Autumn, we’re pleased to announce that a limited number of tickets for which the balance has not been settled will go into our ticket resale, which will be split over two separate days.

As in October, we will be giving the first opportunity to book tickets to those who choose to travel to the Festival by coach. The resale for Ticket + Coach packages will take place at 6pm BST on Thursday, 20th April.

That will be followed by a resale of General Admission Tickets, at 9am BST on Sunday, 23rd April. General Admission Tickets cost £238 + £5 booking fee, with postage by Royal Mail Special Delivery charged at £7.75 per order (coach package e-Ticket delivery is £1.50 per order).

So if you or someone you know is gutted about not getting tickets this year, you’ve all got another chance. The odds are even higher and the competition will be even fiercer, but another chance is another chance.

Radiohead will headline the Friday night of Glastonbury, with Foo Fighters on Saturday and Ed Sheeran closing out the festival on Sunday.

Other acts announced so far include The XX, Stormzy, Biffy Clyro, Boy Better Know, Katy Perry, Royal Blood and Major Lazer.
