Local tickets will go on sale for Glastonbury Festival 2019 before the end of October 2018.
Although General Admission and Coach + Ticket Packages for next year’s Glastonbury Festival have all been sold out, Michael Eavis has once again held back a limited number of full weekend tickets for local people, who were unsuccessful in buying tickets when they went on sale.
Most Glasto fans who missed out on getting tickets to the legendary Worthy Farm festival earlier this month (October 4th and October 7th respectively) must now wait until April 2019 for the Ticket Resales.
But as well as volunteering for a charity, there is another way to get in.
How to get Glastonbury local tickets?
If you’re a local resident, who lives in certain parts of Somerset, near the Worthy Farm festival site in the village of Pilton, you just might be able to bag the golden ticket at the separate ticket sale for locals.
Locals are eligible to buy up to four tickets per transaction.
In order to take advantage of the ‘local ticket sale’, you must already be a registered full time, permanent resident within the catchment, as listed on the Glastonbury Festival website.

Alford, Allhampton, Ansford, Ashcott, Ashwick, Baltonsborough, Barton St David, Binegar, Butleigh, Castle Cary, Coleford, Cranmore, Croscombe, Dinder, Ditcheat, Doulting, East Pennard, Emborough, Evercreech, Glastonbury, Holcombe, Leigh on Mendip, Lovington, Lydford, North Wootton, Oakhill, Pilton, Pylle, Shepton Mallet, Stoke St Michael, Street, Walton, Wells, West Bradley, West Pennard.
When is the local ticket sale for Glastonbury 2019?
The local ticket sale will take place at 12 noon, Thursday 18th October, 2018.
THERE WILL BE A SECOND OPPORTUNITY TO BOOK LOCAL TICKETS AT 10AM ON SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER.
The sale will occur online exclusively at: glastonbury.seetickets.com/go/gf19local
How does the ticket deposit scheme work for the local ticket sale?
A £50 deposit is payable per ticket, with the balance due between April 1st and April 7th, 2018.
Local residents which pay their £50 deposit but change their minds about going, or find themselves unable to attend and decide not to pay the balance in April – will be refunded £30 of their deposit, and a £20 admin fee per ticket will be retained by Glastonbury Festival.
Despite the fact that each local buyer has the option to purchase four tickets per transaction, Glastonbury organisers say every ticket purchased during the local sale should be for someone who is a “registered to an address in the area specified above and are full time, permanent residents of the property. Any bookings suspected to have been booked in breach of this will be cancelled.“
As the official Glastonbury Festival website explains: “In order to preserve the local ticket sale, registration will be suspended in advance and throughout the local sale period. If you are not already registered, you will not be able to book tickets in this sale. Registration will reopen only on 1st November 2018.”
Children aged 12 and under, when accompanied by a ticket holding adult, are admitted free and do not need a ticket.
When booking, you will need to quote the registration number and postcode of each person, and the name they registered under.
would-be Glasto-goers customers are advised to have their debit / credit card number (with security number from back of card) available when booking, and the detail of the ticket delivery address, including the postcode.
More information and terms are available on the Ticket Info Page of Glastonbury Festival’s official website.
Glastonbury Festival Sunday tickets are available exclusively to Central Somerset residents, as they are the people most likely to be inconvenienced during the preparations for the Festival.
Details of when Sunday Tickets for Sunday 30th June, 2019 will go on sale to locals will be published in the local press (such as the Shepton Mallet Journal and Central Somerset Gazette) in due course.
Good luck everyone!
