Glastonbury tickets go on sale Sunday

Tickets for Glastonbury 2011 go on sale this Sunday at 9 am. As usual you need to be registered to buy tickets, you must do this (here) before 9 am tomorrow morning (October 2nd).

Michael Eavis told BBC Newsbeat “The three headliners are incredibly impressive – I deliberately want to announce them after the tickets have been sold. The headliners next year are absolutely fantastic – I can guarantee that. It’ll be on a par with this year, and possibly slightly better even.”

You will be able to book up to 8 tickets per transaction by paying a £50 deposit per person, either online at or on the booking line: 0844 412 4635. You will need the registration number and postcode for each person for whom you are booking a ticket.

There will then be no further UK payments taken until the booking site re-opens on April 1st 2011, when you will have a week to pay your balance of £145 per ticket, and to book everything else you might need (tipis, campervan tickets, parking, insurance). To clarify – it will not be possible to pay for a ticket in full in October, when only deposits will be taken.

  • …Sold out?!


  • Record time, too, though it always sells out on the first day (it took four hours 15 mins this time for 178,000 tickets). If you weren’t pre-registered you couldn’t buy them anyway. I got mine, after thinking I hadn’t well after the sold out announcement. Saved by some amazing friends who did get through and paid up for me 😀
