The final batch of General Admission tickets for the 2024 Glastonbury Festival sold out in just 22 minutes this morning, after going on sale at 9am.

Today’s opportunity to buy tickets for this year’s Worthy Farm event comes on the heels of the first re-sale of tickets bundled with coach travel options which took place last week (18th April) and sold out in just 18 minutes.

The legendary Pilton-held event returns this year and will run from the 26th to the 30th of June – with Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA as its headliners.

Hundreds of thousands of Glasto-fans were up bright and early ready at their computer screens in the second of two ticket resales for the chance of buying tickets for Glastonbury 2024 – after tickets completely sold out when they originally went up for sale last November.

Only pre-registered buyers could access the online re-sales as part of Glastonbury’s continued drive against ticket touting.

At 9:14am, See Tickets – who runs the ticket sales on behalf of Glastonbury Festival – shared a post via X (Twitter) prompting fans to refresh the page and check for any failed transactions returning to sale, if they see the ‘All available tickets have been allocated for Glastonbury 2024′ notice.

Confirmations from successful buyers started appearing on the social media platform roughly fifteen minutes into the resale when one proud mum managed to purchase a ticket for her son’s 30th birthday.

Approximately seven minutes later, at 9:22am, Glastonbury officials announced that all tickets for Glastonbury 2024 had sold out, saying: “The tickets in this morning’s resale have now all been sold. Our thanks to everyone who bought one, and sorry to those who missed out”.

Other fans, who weren’t so lucky also shared their unfortunate resale experience online, with one long-time avid Glasto-goer saying he’ll have to hang up his Glastonbury hat “unless a miracle rears its head over the coming months”.

Despite being unsuccessful in the ticket resale, another unlucky fan said that although she won’t be at the Festival for the first time since 2007, “it’s someone else’s turn to enjoy the magic this year”.

Last November saw the first main wave of tickets which included tickets packaged with coach travel sell out in just 25 minutes, before General Admission tickets were all snapped up in 57 minutes.

After paying a £75 deposit towards their admission pass on Ticket Sale Day last Novemmber, ticket-holders had one week to pay for the remainder of their ticket balance – between 1st April and 7th April [2024] – or lose their ticket and see it go back into the pot for resale.

As in previous years, the exact number of tickets in the resales will not be announced, but it is a very limited amount.

Now with the latest re-sale out of the way, the next sale to take place will be for a limited amount of returned campervan tickets, Worthy View and Sticklinch accommodation for Glastonbury 2024 – which will be avaible to ticket holders from 11am this morning (Sunday, 21tst April).

⚠️ Bogus Operators

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.

Please do not risk falling victim to touts, bogus operators or fake promotions / contests. If you have doubts about any company offering tickets, accommodation or competitions to access Glastonbury Festival, please get in touch with the Festival office – And as always, remember that tickets are sold only on one site, which is glastonbury.seetickets.com

More Opportunities

Although all tickets have now sold out, some other opportunities for getting to Glastonbury include working and volunteering at the Festival, as well as entering the many competitions, once these options make themselves available.

Last month (4th March), Brothers Cider was confirmed as the “Official Cider for Glastonbury 2024”, and to celebrate the announcement, they are giving away 10 pairs of General Admission tickets to this year’s sold-out event.

Along with the latest Clipper Teas set to open on the 22nd of April, there are several other competitions currently running for the chance of winning tickets for Glastonbury 2024 – including opportunities from Guardian, Vodafone, Time Out, White Claw, Tony’s Chocolonely & Oxfam, Chilly’s, Co-op & Worthy Cheddar, Hunter Boots, Barbour & Oxfam, Co-op & Brooklyn Pilsner, Brothers Cider, plus many more to come.

Lineup & Rumours

Shangri-La was the third area to reveal its line-up for 2024 on the 19th of April, after Field of Avalon did so last week (16th April), and Acoustic Stage before that (12th of April).

Although the full Glasto line-up doesn’t tend to get released until the end of May, this year, the first main line-up poster was announced on Thursday morning (14th March), in which it confirmed that Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA will be taking to the iconic Pyramid Stage to headline the Festival this summer on Friday the 28th, Saturday the 29th, and Sunday the 30th of June, respectively.

Shania Twain was also announced as this year’s Sunday afternoon tea-time Legends slot performer, along with a spread of artists, including LCD Soundsystem, Little Simz, Burna Boy, PJ Harvey, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Kiwanuka, Janelle Monae, Olivia Dean, Paloma Faith and Keane, and many more.

With only less than 70 days to go until Glastonbury opens its gates for this summer’s event, we can expect more individual areas and stages to announce their dedicated line-ups over the coming weeks, before the full bill gets revealed sometime at the end of May in the buildup to this year’s Festival.

That said, there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ before the official announcements by divulging the news via interviews, social media or website listings to accompany the ever-growing Glasto rumours.

Site Changes & Updates

When revealing its lineup earlier in the month, late-night area Shangri-La also announced a brand-new venue named Arrivals. Designed by Shankho Chaudhuri, Esha Sikander & Shirin Naveed, and featuring the work of iIllustrator Osheen Siva, the new space is described as the “first dedicated South Asian space” to be created, designed, and built by an entirely South Asian team.

“The visitors to Arrivals will be transported through a portal to an alien jungle planet, immersed by an audio-visual world coded in solar punk, carnivorous plants, cyborg beasts and space pirates. The space bridges across nostalgia to futurism, a sensory feast of vivid lights and colours, remixing the worlds of pulp sci-fi classics within a newly redefined South Asian aesthetic.”

Glastonbury is said to introduce a new bar for 2024 titled ‘The Brewery‘ – As a statement published on the official Festival website reads: “Just along the boulevard from the Pyramid stage that we hope will soon become a firm festival must-visit. Take a seat & enjoy your favourite drink & music with your favourite people”.

The Festival was given both praise for a “very well-run” festival in 2023, as well as a series of recommendations for this year’s edition by council officers on how it may improve ahead of the upcoming event.

Some of the improvement recommendations include better crowd control, bars displaying relevant allergen information, better walkways and additional toilets and water refill stations at The Park and The Stone Circle areas.

Elsewhere, the Rabbit Hole at Glastonbury has announced it will not be returning to Worthy Farm for the 2024 edition of the Festival – In a post on Facebook, the Rabbit Hole organisers said: “It is with gladness in our hearts and love for all of you, that we announce that the Rabbit Hole is disappearing into the ether and will not be at Glastonbury 2024. All great things come to an end and yet the end of one thing is but the beginning of another! What dreams may come!”

Although it has yet to be announced what will be replacing the beloved venue, rumours have it that it might be something created by the same team.
