The final chance for fans to get tickets is at the resale for cancelled tickets in April.

Anyone who bought a ticket today will have paid a deposit of £50, and will be required to pay the rest of the ticket price by April of next year.

Those who change their minds about going, or find themselves unable to attend, will have the opportunity to advise Glastonbury and get some of their £50 refunded – minus a £25 administration fee (If the ticket was booked with a Coach Package, then an additional £25 will be retained).

The festival organisers will then go ahead and put forward these cancelled tickets for resales which usually takes place in April.

Only people who registered to buy tickets will be eligible for these resale tickets, which will have to be paid for in full (£265 per person + £5 booking fee)

Registration closed at 5pm on Monday, September 30, and will reopen after the October ticket sales.

Please keep in mind that all Glastonbury 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.

Meanwhile – Glastonbury founder, Michael Eavis, has already confirmed Wolf Alice will be on the Glastonbury 2020 bill, and 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.
