Full weekend tickets for inner & outer zones, as well as Sunday tickets for Mendip & central Somerset residents, are now all gone – but there’s still hope for those who missed out in the form of Spring resales which usually take place around April time
Local & Sunday tickets for the 2023 Glastonbury Festival have now completely sold out after going on sale this morning (Sunday, 20th November) at 9am.
As always, Festival founder Michael Eavis 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.
Today’s sale was split into 3 parts, with the first portion taking place at 9am, when ‘full weekend tickets’ were made available solely for ‘inner zone residents’.
The sale then went into its second phase at 10am, opening up the option to buy full weekend tickets for both ‘inner & outer zone residents’.
Some fans expressed their frustration with the See Tickets system after the dreaded “all available tickets have now been allocated” message (seen below) showed up abnormally fast at only 10:01 am – despite there obviously still being tickets left in the pot for the ‘outer zone residents’.
Other people on Twitter who did not give up in the face of the red-worded message and pushed through, were finally successful in buying the golden ticket – before all ‘inner zone’ tickets sold out at 10:14 am.
‘Sunday tickets for Mendip and central Somerset residents’ then went up for grabs at 11am and took a bit longer to sell out.
Although here too some fans were befuddled while pointing out at the start of the sale that the button on the webpage wasn’t working properly – all Sunday tickets were eventually gone by 12:18 pm.
Coach ticket packages and general admission tickets went on sale at the beginning of the month, however – on the 3rd and 6th of November 2022, respectively.
While the standard tickets in the main sale earlier this month 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.
Looking back at previous sellout times – the fastest time on record for a Glastonbury ticket sell-out was for the 2015 Festival when all General Admission tickets were snapped up in just 25 minutes!
Glastonbury 2023 will take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday the 21st to Sunday the 25th of June.
This year, ticket prices have increased for next year’s event to £340 – made up of a £335 face value and a £5 booking fee on each ticket.
Emily Eavis explained: “We have tried very hard to minimise the increase in price on the ticket but we’re facing enormous rises in the costs of running this vast show, whilst still recovering from the huge financial impact of two years without a festival because of Covid.”
Now, with both the main ticket sales out of the way, as well as the locals’ sale, the next option to bag tickets to the Pilton event 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 next year’s Festival will need to have registered in advance.
That said, registration for Glastonbury 2023 closed at 5pm GMT on Monday, 31st October, and as of this moment in time, there is no opportunity to submit/re-submit a registration until registration will open once again on Monday, 21st November 2022.
There will also be an Accommodation Sale sometime in the near future, for those who managed to purchase tickets in the recent sales.
As in previous years, registration remains free of charge and only takes a few minutes at glastonburyregistration.co.uk.
Those who have already registered in the past can also check their existing registration here.
In addition to the upcoming ticket resales, some other opportunities for getting to Glastonbury include entering competitions, working at the Festival and volunteering – once those options make themselves available.

In other Glastonbury news, although no acts have been confirmed for Glastonbury 2023 as of yet, the bookmakers’ favourites as of this moment in time include Arctic Monkeys, Elton John and Guns n Roses.
The 1975 are also now mentioned once again in the Glastonbury context after rumours started permeating the web when the Cheshire band confirmed new tour dates – leaving them wide open over the 2023 Glastonbury weekend.
As with every Glastonbury-year, the speculation about who might play the legendary festival is always very high, and with the 2023 event fast approaching, the Glasto Rumour Mill is already spinning in full force.
Although the first line-up poster doesn’t usually get revealed until the beginning of March, followed by the full line-up announcement sometime at the end of May – there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ prior to the official announcements by divulging the news via interviews, social media or website listings to accompany the ever-growing rumours.
Rihanna‘s name has also recently been mentioned after she was reportedly approached by the Festival about being the closing act at the event next year.
Taylor Swift however has effectively almost ruled herself out of the run for 2023 after announcing her long-rumoured return to the road – scheduled to hit U.S. stadiums beginning in March 2023 and running into August.
Pulp also revealed dates of their upcoming reunion tour scheduled for next summer, leaving plenty of room for a Glastonbury performance – while Victoria Beckham ruled out a Glastonbury appearance as part of a Spice Girls reunion, following long-time speculation fuelled by her former band mates.
Elsewhere, whispers of a possible Glastonbury performance by Roxy Music started circling the web in early September, after a couple of posts were published on the eFestivals website, pertaining to some apparent inside information “from a very reliable source” – saying the band are set to play the Legends Slot at Glastonbury 2023.
Arctic Monkeys are also strongly rumoured to have signed on “the dotted line” for a deal to headline the Festival next summer after their UK tour sold out in minutes when going up for sale in October this year.
Guns N’ Roses entered the rumour mill after Festival organiser Emily Eavis said in an interview last year that the hard rockers need to play the Worthy Farm event at some point.
While Elton John, who has likewise, long been rumoured for a performance at Glasto, made some changes to his current ‘Yellow Brick Road’ tour schedule and in doing so created a perfectly-sized Glasto-shaped gap in his upcoming tour dates.
And finally, Eminem – which is yet another name to have never stepped foot at Worthy Farm – is said to be in “advanced talks” to headline the iconic Pyramid Stage at the Festival next year.
It is worth noting though that Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis did however say earlier this year that all three headliners for the 2023 Festival have already been booked.
Therefore, these rumours are to be taken for what they are, as any insider claiming to know anything about anything, either have access to unreleased information or is outright mistaken.

As of the time of publication, current SkyBet odds for ‘Glastonbury Festival 2023 headliner’ are as follows:
|Guns n Roses||1/2|
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: glastonbury.seetickets.com.
