Up to 15,000 tickets were snapped up by the Glasto fans in just 29 minutes. Needless to say, there were many who were left without tickets, as demand for the legendary Worthy Farm festival is always extremely high, but with 2018 being a “fallow year”, the anticipation for Glastonbury 2019 is higher than ever (to put it mildly).
Standard tickets are set to go on sale at 9am BST on Sunday, 7th October – which will subsequently see the release of the final 150,000 ticket-only passes. Registration for tickets closed on October 1.
Please keep in mind that all Glastonbury Festival tickets are sold only on one site: glastonbury.seetickets.com – any other site claiming to sell tickets for the festival are not authentic, and you will be setting yourself up for disappointment. Make sure you are in the right place before putting down a deposit.
As of the time of publishing, Mike Pickering’s Hacienda Classical is the sole act confirmed for 2019 so far, after Pickering dropped the news on Radio X back in December of last year (2017).
That being said, as with every pre-Glastonbury year, there are numerous rumours and speculation feeding the Glasto Rumour Mill with who might headline Glastonbury 2019.
Emily Eavis recently told BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley about the plans for the Glastonbury 2019 line-up and that they were going well, revealing that the Legend’s slot will be a “non-British female” and that Paul McCartney is ‘top of their list’ to headline.
Michael Eavis said that the 2019 headliners will be “two or three [acts] that have never played”.
Eavis also said that Boy George & Culture Club would be a ‘great idea’ to play the legend’s slot next year. As the band have just yesterday (July 31) released their first new material in twenty years entitled ‘Let Somebody Love You.’
Glastonbury Festival 2019 will run from Wednesday, June 26, 2019, till Sunday, June 30.
