Local people who were unsuccessful in the recent ticket sales will have another chance to book tickets
Michael Eavis has once again held back a number of full Glastonbury 2023 weekend tickets for local people as a second chance for those residents who were unsuccessful in the recent ticket sales.
The 2023 edition of the Festival is set to run from Wednesday the 21st to Sunday the 25th of June.
Coach ticket packages and general admission tickets went on sale earlier this month on the 3rd and 6th of November 2022, respectively.
While standard tickets for the 2023 Glastonbury Festival sold out in just over an hour (due to overwhelming demand and some technical issues), tickets packaged with coach travel were all snapped up and sold out in just 22 minutes.
The next sale to take place will be for Local & Sunday tickets – which will be broken into 3 semi-sales – from 9am, Sunday 20th November, 2022, online at glastonbury.seetickets.com.
Full weekend tickets for local residents FAQ
How much are Glastonbury 2023 tickets?
Glastonbury 2023 tickets will cost £335 + £5 booking fee, with the local ticket sale allowing local residents to take advantage of the Festival’s ticket deposit scheme – meaning only a deposit of £50 (per ticket) is taken at the point of sale in the local ticket sale.
The remainder of the ticket price will then have to be paid during a week-long window in April 2023 (from 09:00 BST Saturday 1st April – 23:59 BST Friday 7th April 2023).
Any tickets for which the balance is not paid will be refunded £25 of their deposit, and a £25 admin fee per ticket will be retained.
How many tickets can I buy in the local ticket sale?
You can buy a maximum of 4 tickets if you get through to the ticket page – provided all those for whom you are booking are full-time, permanent residents registered within the local catchment area.
If you plan to buy tickets for other people, they all need to be registered, and you will need their registration numbers along with their corresponding postcodes and the name they registered under in order to purchase tickets on their behalf.
Also, make sure to have your debit / credit card number (with security number from the back of your card) available when booking, and the detail of the ticket delivery address, including the postcode.
Do children also need to buy a local ticket?
Children aged 12 and under, when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult are admitted free and do not need a ticket.
Do I really need to be registered?
Yes! In order 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 ticket sale period.
If you are not already registered within the catchment, you will not be able to book tickets in this sale.

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:
any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival is not authentic.
Residents who are eligible for Village tickets will be contacted in the New Year.
