Along with Glastonbury Festival tickets, all through January, the BBC radio station will be giving away daily prizes from the world of sport, TV, music and festivals.

As mentioned above, the string of competitions kicks off on Monday 9th January, when listeners will have the chance to win 2 tickets to both the Men’s and Womens’ F.A. Cup Finals in 2023, plus take home one of the match balls.

  2. Text the competition keyword when you hear it (between 07:00 – 08:00) to 81199.
  3. Five (5) entrants will then be randomly selected for shortlisting and called back within thirty (30) minutes of the registration closing – Along with eligibility checks, the shortlisted entrants will be asked the question ‘How much do you want to win this prize?’ with their answer scored.
  4. The highest scoring two (2) shortlisted entrants will be brought on-air to compete in a head-to-head quiz, where one person will win the prize.

BBC Radio 1 may also use your on-air appearance for promotional purposes on the BBC’s social media sites.

All prizes on offer and the full Terms & Conditions can be found on this page.

This isn’t the first time BBC give away Glastonbury tickets. Prior to Glastonbury’s forced cancellation due to the worldwide pandemic – back in early 2020, all BBC Radio 1 listeners had to do to be in with a chance of winning tickets to that year’s Festival was work out a three-letter word from three clues given live on air.

Radio 1 had also previously given away tickets to the Worthy Farm event as part of a treasure hunt competition which took place in October 2019. 

A constantly updated list of all the current competitions to enter for the chance of winning tickets to Glastonbury 2023 can be found here.

Glastonbury 2023 will take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday the 21st to Sunday the 25th of June.

With both the main ticket sales, as well as the local & Sunday ticket sale now out of the way, the next option to bag tickets to Glastonbury 2023 will be when the resale of any unpaid and/or cancelled tickets takes place in the Spring of 2023 (around April time).

As part of Glastonbury’s ongoing efforts against ticket touting, anyone who would like to attend this year’s Festival will need to have registered in advance.

Don’t be fooled

Glastonbury Festival would very much like fans to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.

Although Glasto-veterans who have been going to the Festival for quite some time may recognise these scams for what they are, newcomers might not.

Therefore, please remember that tickets are only sold on one site, which is:
