glastonbury 2019 accommodation

Worthy View, Sticklinch, Tipi Village and Campervan / Caravan pitches

Last Updated on November 19

Glastonbury Festival has announced that the sale for Glastonbury 2020’s accommodation options will take place this in November 2019.

When is the sale?

Coach + ticket package holders will have access to a pre-sale for Worthy View accommodation from 6pm on Thursday 21st November, 2019.

The pre-sale will be followed by a general release of Campervan/Caravan tickets (for general admission ticket holders only), Tipis and Worthy View accommodation at 7pm on Thursday 21st November, 2019.

Who is eligible for pre-erected tents and campervan/caravan tickets?

Accommodation options are only available to those who have already purchased their Glastonbury Festival ticket.

Any and all accommodation ticket bookings for 2020 will be taken SOLELY by the Festival’s nominated booking agency, See Tickets. See Tickets is the only company permitted to sell accommodation for Glastonbury Festival. No other site or agency will be allocated accommodation. Any other company or individual claiming to sell official Glastonbury Festival accommodation is bogus.

Worthy View

Those who would like to have a tent ready and waiting for them on arrival at the Festival, and nothing to carry home but their bags – Glastonbury Festival’s official offsite campsite, Worthy View, will once again be back in 2020, offering unpretentious, custom-made and pre-erected Festival accommodation a short walk from the Festival site (up the hill above the Stone Circle field).

Worthy View’s boasts a wide selection of tent types, from scout, bell and yurts tents, to Podpads, Bellepads and Octopads.

Where is Worthy View located?

Worthy View is located south of the Festival site, on Pennard Hill. Pedestrian access to the site through the Pennard Hill Pedestrian Gate (between the Stone Circle Field and the Tipi Field) is via a footpath at a gradient which is not suitable for wheelchairs or children’s pushchairs.

Pedestrian access from the Festival site to Worthy View is via a footpath with steps at a steep gradient which is not suitable for wheelchairs, perambulators or child buggies.

If you have mobility concerns, then staying in Worthy View may result in limited access to the Festival. Vehicle access to the Worthy View car parks is via red route (A361) if approaching from the North, and via Blue Route (A37) if approaching from the South. Festival-goers at Worthy View will benefit from designated car parks, in the adjacent field to the campsite.

How much will Worthy View accommodation cost?

The Glastonbury Festival website states that “All prices are for five nights – Wednesday June 24th to Sunday June 28th, inclusive. Prices do not include Festival tickets. Everyone who wishes to stay at Worthy View must have a valid Festival ticket.”

As mentioned above, Worthy View bookings will be taken exclusively by the Festival’s nominated booking agency, See Tickets.

To make a booking you will be required to enter the registration number you used when booking your Festival ticket. Please note you will need to present this ticket on arrival when checking in at your accommodation.

When booking, you will also be asked to supply the names of each person staying in your accommodation. You will also be asked to provide some information about your expected day, time and method of arrival at the campsite.

Having booked accommodation via See Tickets, you will receive a confirmation email to confirm your reservation within 24 hours, and will receive a follow-up message from the Festival in May 2020 with further details of your accommodation and access information.

You may book up to 2 units of accommodation per booking. Car parking tickets will also be available to book when making an accommodation booking. Please note that if you are staying at Worthy View and wish to arrive by car, you must buy a Worthy View Car Park Ticket – not a general Festival Car Park Ticket.

Where possible the Festival will endeavour to meet requests for friends and family groups to be located together if booking the same accommodation type and campsite, however this service cannot be guaranteed.

Sticklinch (New for 2020)

As part of Glastonbury’s continued commitment to reducing waste at the Festival, a new official offsite campsite – Sticklinch – will be introduced at the 2020 edition of the Festival next summer.

The new Sticklinch campsite will be located on the former site of the West Campervan Fields for the 2020 Festival.

Like Worthy View, Sticklinch will offer unpretentious, custom-made and pre-erected Festival accommodation a short walk from the Festival site for those who would like to have a tent ready and waiting for them on arrival at the Festival, and nothing to carry home but their bags.

Glastonbury says that “The Sticklinch pre-erected campsite will be home to a range of Podpads, Yurts and Bell Tents, as well as a limited number of the Festival’s signature scout-style tents, and offers a more gently undulating walk to the Festival site, ideal for those who find the climb to Worthy View challenging.”

Sticklinch also benefits from car parking in an adjacent field to the campsite, though Glastonbury encourages anyone leaving their tent at home in favour of ‘glamping’ to use public transport wherever possible.

Additional campervan pitches will be available in Campervans East and at the Bath & West Showground to accommodate the displaced campervans and caravans.

As with Worthy View, as well as being the first to secure Glastonbury tickets, those who have booked to travel to the Festival with a coach + ticket package will have priority booking when booking opens for Sticklinch Campsite.

Where is Sticklinch located?

Sticklinch Site Map

The Sticklinch campsite is located West of the Festival site, in the former West Campervan fields. Pedestrian access to the site through the former West Campervan Pedestrian Gate (between the Bailey’s and South Park camping grounds, near Cineramageddon) is via a footpath with a gentle gradient across Rigg’s Field campsite. See map above.

Vehicle access to the Sticklinch car park is via Orange Route from the A361.

Festival-goers at Sticklinch will benefit from designated car parks, in the adjacent field to the campsite, and a short walk from any off-site campsite to the late night entertainment areas.

Tipi Village

Another option for those who prefer to have a tent ready and waiting for them, as with Worthy View, Tipis have long established themselves as part of the annual landscape at Glastonbury Festival.

There are a limited number of Tipis available to hire for Festival ticket holders, offering spectacular views across the whole site from the hills in addition to leaving you with nothing to carry home but your bags.

These traditional pre-erected 18ft canvas “tents” come complete with groundsheet and rain-catcher; that being said, they are intended to be an elemental experience, without the trappings of ‘luxury’ campsites. You will need to bring your own bedding, mats, and any other necessary creature comforts, and expect to be using basic camping facilities.

The Tipi Village has its own facilities including compost toilets and showers, plus there will be hot food and drinks available to purchase, a communal fire, and space around the Tipis to sit, and for children to play.

Where is the Tipi Village located?

The Tipi Village is situated on the southern slopes of the Festival site – near the Stone Circle and adjacent to the Park.

How much will Tipi tickets cost?

Tipis can accommodate up to 6 adults and for Glastonbury 2020 will cost £1150 to hire (Festival tickets not included).

The Glastonbury Festival website states that “all prices are for five nights – Wednesday, June 24th to Sunday, June 28th, inclusive. Prices do not include Festival tickets. Everyone who wishes to stay at Worthy View must have a valid Festival ticket”.

When and where will I be able to buy and pay for Tipi Tickets?

Tipi bookings will be taken exclusively by the Festival’s nominated booking agency, See Tickets at 7pm on Thursday 21st November, 2019.

Campervan/caravan tickets

Anyone planning to bring a campervan or caravan in 2020 will need to book their own campervan/caravan tickets and will need to present both their named campervan/caravan ticket and Festival ticket to be able to park in these fields. Campervan/caravan tickets will feature the name and address of the ticket booker.

They’re also non-transferable and will be printed with the name and address of the booker. Attempts to re-sell them may result in their cancellation.

Campervan tickets will only be available to General Admission ticket holders (excluding Coach + Ticket package holders).

Where is the campervan site located?

Prior to 2020, there were two sites, Campervans West and Campervans East – though now the new Sticklinch campsite will be located on the former site of the West Campervan Fields for the 2020 Festival.

There is an estimated 10-minute walk from the East and Poplar campervan fields to the outer areas of the Festival, and 20 minutes to the main stages, at an average pace (longer when the site is busy). However, timing will depend on where in the fields you are placed as some fields are much further out than others. The site map will give you a general idea of the distances involved and your nearest access points.

A free shuttle bus is available 24 hours from the Bath and West Showground to the Festival Bus Station.

How much will campervan/caravan tickets cost?

Campervan/caravan tickets to park in these fields are available for an additional fee of £125 for a single pitch (all Campervan sites) or £225 for a large pitch (at Bath and West only).

Please note that there are 5 options of campervan ticket available – General or Quiet/Hire (Single) pitches on Blue Route on the East of the site; General (Single) pitches on the West of the site, and General (Single and Large pitches) at the Bath and West Showground (White Route). Please ensure you follow the correct route according to the colour of your ticket.

Campervan/caravan ticket types:

East Quiet Campervans/ Hired, Delivered Vehicle Pitches (Blue route):
Pitch up to 8m x 7m, for one vehicle up to 8m in length – £125
Suitable for Families, those with access issues and those looking for a quieter field. Situated between Blue route and the Festival site. Turn left for Quiet Camping off Blue route.

The Glastonbury Festival website states that “In order to make an accommodation booking, you must already have a valid ticket booking for Glastonbury 2020.”

When and where will I be able to buy and pay for campervan/caravan tickets?

Caravan/campervan ticket bookings will be taken by the Festival’s nominated booking agency, See Tickets at 7pm on Thursday 21st November, 2019.

How many campervan/caravan tickets can I book?

A maximum of one campervan/caravan ticket can be booked per transaction. If your campervan is larger than 8m in length, please book a large campervan pitch, which are only available at the Bath & West Showground.

PLEASE NOTE: Caravans/campervans larger than 8m will be turned away from the East and West Campervan areas and will be sent to the Bath and West subject to space still being available and will be charged the extra.

Demand for campervan tickets is usually very high, so we would recommend booking one as soon as they are released. Glastonbury Festival says that – “whilst every effort will be made to accommodate campervans in your preferred site, the Festival reserves the right to provide alternative facilities in the event of adverse conditions.”

Glastonbury-on-sea tent tickets

New for 2020 – Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis had previously revealed that Glastonbury-on-sea will be returning for the Festival’s 50th-anniversary in 2020, while sharing some new details about the planned improvements to the attraction in the form of a sea of pre-pitched tents.

Replacing the need for Glasto-goers to bring their own tent, they will now be able to rent one of the pre-pitched tents surrounding the pier prior to the event, which apart from being very convenient, will also further help reduce campsite waste.

Keeping with the seaside theme, the tents will be represented in the colours of blue and white, with the artistic aim of making them appear to be an ocean around Glastonbury-on-sea’s Victorian pier when seen from a distance.

Only around 100 of these pre-pitched blue and white tents will be available to the public, they will be joining a range of other pre-pitched options available at the festival, including the Tipi Village and Worthy View.

It has yet to be confirmed as to when Glastonbury-on-Sea accommodation tickets will go on sale. 

Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for the Festival’s 50th anniversary have now sold out, with General Admission tickets selling out in 33 minutes, following Coach + Ticket Packages which sold out in just 27 minutes.

There are still ways to go to Glastonbury next year, and in addition to being able to volunteer – there will also be a resale of any cancelled tickets in the spring, with coach + ticket packages going up for resale on April 16 – followed by a general admission tickets resale (which don’t include travel) on April 19.

Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.

I believe you need to already have a ticket in order to buy a campervan ticket.

Do you have to pay full price when booking accommodation or will a deposit secure it?
