Don’t be fooled and risk falling victim to unauthorised sellers or buying fake tickets
Glastonbury 2020 tickets went on sale earlier this month and are now sold out.
With tickets for the Festival’s 50th-anniversary being snapped up in a matter of minutes by enthusiastic festival-goers, those who have missed out have been warned to be wary of scammers.
Glastonbury Festival would very much like you to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.
The Festival organiser, Emily Eavis, took to social media this morning (October 16), to warn and advise would-be Glasto-goers of “unauthorised sellers”, saying: “Please note – all Glastonbury tickets have now sold out and there will be an official resale in the spring. Only See Tickets are authorised to sell tickets for Glastonbury Festival. No other site or agency will be allocated tickets. All Glastonbury Festival tickets are personalised and cannot be re-sold. Please do not risk falling victim to unauthorised sellers or buying fake tickets.”

In addition to See Tickets being the only authorised seller of Glastonbury Festival tickets, the tickets are also personalised with the photo, name and postcode of the ticket holder, which makes it almost impossible to transfer them.
The photos on tickets and the registration system – which was introduced back in 2007 – should eliminate this phenomenon to a very large extent, that being said, there are still those who lack the correct knowledge pertaining to Glastonbury tickets and may fall victim to such scams.
PLEASE NOTE and REMEMBER:
For those who still want to buy a ticket: there’ll be a resale in April 2020
Anyone who managed to bag a ticket in the recent ticket sales will have paid a deposit of £50 and will need to pay the rest of the ticket price by 7 April 2020. Any tickets not paid for by the deadline are then put up for resale.
Coach package tickets will go back on sale on 16 April, and general admission tickets (which don’t include travel) will be resold on 19 April.
Only people who have registered will be eligible for these resale tickets and will have to pay for them in full (£265 per person + £5 booking fee).
Registration is currently closed but will reopen on Friday, 1 November, and will close again a few days before the resale, so don’t leave it until the last minute.
If you are uncertain whether you’re registered or not, you can check on the Festival’s official website here.
Following Glastonbury‘s ticket sell-out – apart from the chance for fans to get tickets for Glastonbury 2020 in the April resales – the Festival has launched a rare and special opportunity for those without tickets to get their hands on a pair. There are 50 pairs of tickets up for grabs right now which will be sold by ballot, to commemorate the 50th-anniversary of Glastonbury Festival.
Glastonbury officially announced Diana Ross as the first major act confirmed for the Festival’s 50th anniversary – This follows news of Glastonbury founder, Michael Eavis, already confirming Wolf Alice will be on the Glastonbury 2020 bill, with Supergrass are rumoured to make an appearance after reforming to play this year’s Pilton Party.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
