Glastonbury Festival will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year and if you want to be in with a chance of getting tickets – you have to be registered!
Registration for Glastonbury 2020 closes at 5pm on Monday, 30th September, after which there will be no opportunity to submit/re-submit a registration until after the October ticket sales.
The first wave of tickets for next year’s festival will go up for grabs at the beginning of October – with coach + ticket packages on sale at 6pm BST on Thursday, 3rd October, before general admission tickets at 9am BST on Sunday, 6th October.
Anyone who hasn’t registered by 5pm on Monday, 30th September, will not be able to attempt to buy tickets (or have anyone buy one on their behalf), as each person for whom you wish to book a ticket has to have a valid registration number.
Glastonbury organisers strongly recommend submitting your application at least one week prior to registration closing, in order for you have enough time to resubmit your photo if it gets rejected.
Registering yourself is very easy, and completely cost-free. One thing to note is that you are required to submit a headshot photo of yourself. There is a list of photos Dos and Don’ts on the registration page, so make sure you check over them before you submit. To register, visit glastonburyregistration.co.uk
Once again, you’ll need the registration number and postcode for each person who wants a ticket, so make sure to check all these details in advance – Anyone who has registered before doesn’t need to register again – if you are uncertain whether you’re all registered or not, you can check on the Glastonbury Festival official website here: glastonbury.seetickets.com/registration/lookup
Successful registration doesn’t guarantee tickets, and as with every Glastonbury year, the demand for tickets is extremely high. Last year, coach + ticket packages sold out in just 29 minutes, while general admission tickets sold out within 36 minutes of going on sale.
As mentioned above, another registration window will re-open after the October ticket sales, and any cancelled tickets will then be put forward and made available in the ticket resales (which usually take place in April).
For any first-time ticket buyers: here are some tips & tricks, to help maximise your chances of bagging the Glasto golden ticket snitch.
The first line-up taster will probably not be unveiled by the festival’s officials until the end of March/beginning of April – meanwhile, feel free to check out all the latest rumours here.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
