Glastonbury 2020 Local & Sunday tickets set to go on sale

Local tickets will go on sale for Glastonbury Festival 2020 before the end of October

Although general admission and coach plus 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 to book tickets in both the coach and general admission ticket sales (3rd and 6th October 2019 respectively).

Most Glasto fans who missed out on getting tickets to the legendary Worthy Farm heald event earlier this month, must now wait until April 2020 for the ticket resales – But as well as volunteering for a charity, there is another way to get in, if you’re a local, that is.

In response to the ever-increasing demand for local tickets for the 2019 edition of the Festival, the allocation of tickets set aside for local residents has been further increased for Glastonbury 2020.

Full weekend and Sunday Glastonbury 2020 tickets for local residents will go on sale from 9am Sunday 27th October:

9 AM – Full weekend tickets for inner zone only
10 AM – Full weekend tickets for inner & outer zones
11 AM – Sunday tickets for Mendip and central Somerset residents

Before you take any other step, make sure you have registered!

There is no way you can book Glastonbury tickets unless you’ve pre-registered. If you are uncertain whether you’re registered or not, you can check on the Festival’s official website here.

PLEASE NOTE: Registration is currently closed but will reopen on Friday, November 1, and will close again a few days before the resale, so don’t leave it until the last minute.

Full weekend tickets for local residents:

Who is eligible for Glastonbury Festival 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.

In order to take advantage of the ‘local ticket sale’, you must already be a registered full time, permanent resident within the catchment below.

The Festival states that: “In order to make sure that those most likely to be affected by the Festival have the best chance to secure tickets, for the 2020 Festival additional local tickets will be made available to residents within the inner catchment zone, before opening the sale to the outer catchment zone.”

The statement also says that to ensure tickets in the local sale only go to genuine full time, permanent local residents, registration will be suspended in advance and throughout the local sale period. And that if you are not already registered within the catchment, you will not be able to book tickets in this sale. As mentioned above, registration will reopen only on 1st November 2019.

A map of the eligible areas can be found below. The local ticket catchment boundary lines are arbitrated at the discretion of the Festival. The Festival’s decision on eligibility is final, and any tickets found to be purchased using false information will be cancelled.

Permanent full-time residents living and registered in the following towns and villages within the inner zone will be able to book tickets from 9am:

Doulting, East Pennard, Glastonbury, North Wootton, Pilton, Pylle, Shepton Mallet, West Bradley, West Pennard.

Who is eligible for Glastonbury Festival Sunday tickets?

Glastonbury Festival Sunday tickets are available exclusively to Mendip & Central Somerset residents. This wider catchment area (see ‘Zone Map’ above) includes residents of towns such as Bruton, Frome & Radstock, which fall outside the local full weekend ticket catchment, but who may still experience some inconvenience during the Festival period.

PLEASE NOTE: A condition for the sale of these tickets is that travel to the Festival site is by bus only.

When is the Sunday ticket sale?

The Sunday tickets cost £95 – a price which includes travel by bus to and from the site from the following local towns: Castle Cary, Frome, Radstock, Glastonbury, Midsomer Norton, Shepton Mallet, Street and Wells.

Morning pick-ups from each location are at 9:30am and 11am, with several return buses to each location leaving the Festival, up until 12:30am.

Sunday tickets are strictly non-transferable. As such, each ticket will feature the photograph of the registered ticket holder with security checks carried out to ensure that only the person in the photograph is admitted to the Festival.

Every person (aged 13 or over) who intends to purchase a Sunday ticket must have their own valid registration number.

Children aged 6-12 are admitted free but require a pre-booked bus ticket, which is charged at £15, however, they do not need to register in order to book a bus ticket. Children under 6 travel free, and do not require any tickets.

Despite the fact that the full line-up has yet to be released – general admission tickets for Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary in 2020 sold out in 33 minutes, with coach + ticket packages selling out in just 27 minutes.

There will 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.

In addition to having another chance of going to Glastonbury next year by trying for tickets in the April resale, the Festival has also 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.

Meanwhile, Glastonbury officially announced Diana Ross as the first major act confirmed for the Festival’s 50th anniversary – this comes post 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.
