Glastonbury Festival ticket sale delayed

Steve Hopkins

Organisers said the move was done ‘out of fairness’

The Glastonbury Festival ticket sale has been delayed by two weeks, according to reports.

The BBC reported Thursday that organisers had made the decision “out of fairness” to customers who did not realise their registration had expired.

The festival’s announcement came four hours before tickets with coach travel were due to go on sale.

Some older profiles were deleted last month – but Glastonbury organisers say some people had not been made aware of the issue, the broadcaster reported.

Music fans are required to register in advance to buy tickets in a move aimed at combating touting.

Tickets will now be released 16 November at 6pm, and general admission tickets will go on sale on 19 November at 9am.

Registration will reopen on Monday 6 November at midday and close the following Monday at 5pm.

Music fans were alerted by email that registrations created before 2020 would be deleted on 2 October and told they would be able to re-register before the 30 October deadline.

The BBC reported that some Glasto fans had only learned about this after the deadline passed.

Tickets for 2024 cost £355 (plus a £5 booking fee). They were £335 for this year’s event.
