Missed out on Glastonbury 2020 tickets? Here’s the chance you’ve been waiting for…
BBC Radio 1 has launched a new on-air competition this morning (October 21), in which listeners are invited to take part in a national treasure hunt for the chance of winning a ticket to Glastonbury 2020, Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Reading & Leeds next summer.
The BBC Radio tweeted out this morning (October 21) a short video message from Greg James saying: “Do you want to be at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Reading & Leeds Festival and Glastonbury Festival next year? Make sure you’re listening to Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James at 7:30 on Thursday #R1TreasureHunt” – Watch the full message below.

As mentioned above, Radio 1’s treasure hunt will kick off at 7.30am on Thursday 24th October on Breakfast, when a Golden Ticket will be hidden in four different locations around the UK.
Radio 1’s Greg James will gradually reveal clues about their whereabouts throughout the show.
The first listener to find one of the Golden Tickets will win a pair of tickets to Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Reading & Leeds and Glastonbury Festivals. The thing is that once one of the four tickets is found, the other three Golden Tickets will be destroyed.
This promotion follows recent games such as Hide and Seek and Radio 1’s Escape Room.
Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for next year’s Festival 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 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.
