Glastonbury officials have now revealed the dates for the resale of tickets to its highly anticipated 2024 Festival.

The legendary Pilton-held event returns this year and will run from Wednesday the 26th through to Sunday the 30th of June, 2024, at Worthy Farm in Pilton – with Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA as its headliners.

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

Now, those who missed out on tickets in the original sales will have another chance to attend, after a limited number of tickets for which the balance has not been paid for, will go back into the pot for the 2024 Ticket Resale.

These resales will be split over two separate days and followed by a dedicated Accommodation Options resale, as detailed below.

⏰ Resale Dates

The resale of Coach Plus Ticket Packages will take place at 6pm (BST) on Thursday, 18th April, followed by a General Admission tickets resale at 9am (BST) on Sunday, 21st April.

Additionally, there will be a resale of Accommodation Options at 11am (BST) on Sunday 21st April.

The resale dates confirmation comes after just yesterday (8th April), Glasto organiser Emily Eavis revealed that the Festival had seen its “highest percentage of ticket balances paid ever,”

“Incredible. Thanks so much everyone,” she added – while confirming “there will be a resale of the (very limited) returned tickets later this month.”

Glastonbury ticket resale F.A.Q

What is the Glastonbury ticket resale?

Following the ticket balance payment window, Glastonbury will be selling “a very limited number of tickets” for which the balance was not settled – consisting of General Admission tickets and Ticket + Coach travel options.

Will there be a Glastonbury resale for 2024?

Yes – Now that ticket holders have paid their final balance, any returned / cancelled tickets will go back into the pot and be available for resale.

When is the Glastonbury 2024 resale?

Ticket + Coach travel options – Thursday 18th April, 6pm (BST).

General Admission tickets – Sunday 21st April, 9am (BST).

Accommodation options – Sunday 21st April, 11am on (BST).

Where do I buy tickets for Glastonbury 2024 in the resale?

As ever, the resale will only be available at one place which is glastonbury.seetickets.com

⚠️ Bogus Operators Reminder

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

Do I need to be registered to try for tickets in the resale?

Yes – 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.

If you are not registered, we advise registering by Friday, 12th April to allow for the registration to be processed and resubmitted if needed.

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

When does the registration window close?

Registration closes at 5pm BST on Wednesday 17th April, and will not reopen until after the resale.

How much will a ticket cost in the resale?

Tickets purchased in resales after April 8th 2024 must be paid for in full at the point of booking and will cost £355 + £5 booking fee (plus your coach fare if booking a coach ticket package – as detailed below).

Please also note that secure delivery of General Admission tickets is charged at £9.95 postage per order, while Tickets + Coach travel options e-Ticket delivery is £2.75 per order.

Which payment methods are accepted (and which not)?

Apart from American Express – UK tickets can now be purchased with a UK debit card or Visa or Mastercard credit cards, while international tickets can only be bought by Visa Credit Card or Mastercard Credit Card.

Depending on your device settings, you may be offered other payment methods such as Google Pay and Apple Pay.

Please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure you are set up with the relevant service ahead of the resales to be able to use these methods.

Do I need to pay the full balance in the resale, or can I just pay a deposit?

The deposit scheme for 2024 is now closed and therefore any tickets bought in the resales must be paid for in full at the time of booking.

How many tickets can I buy in the resale?

You may purchase up to 4 tickets per transaction in the General Admission resale on Sunday 21st April – but remember that you can only book one ticket per registration.

For example: If you plan to book for a group, you will need all their registration numbers and registered postcodes, too – get them ready now.

The Ticket + Coach travel options sale on Thursday 18th April will be limited to 2 tickets per transaction, to reflect the limited number of seats available per coach – Again, you will need the registration number for each ticket you are booking.

How many tickets will be available in the resale?

As it stands, Glastonbury’s official statement on the matter is: “As in previous years, the exact number of tickets in the resale will not be announced. But it is a limited amount”.

What if the ticket + coach travel option I want is no longer available?

See Tickets is running more than 300 coaches to the Festival, and the Ticket + Coach travel option tickets are spread across these.

As it’s likely that people will be attempting to buy these very limited options at the same time, it may be that someone else manages to complete the purchase before you do – A purchase is only confirmed when payment has been successfully processed.

If you choose a departure town, and then see a message that says “Tickets not available”, this means all the seats that were available on that coach have already been requested by another booker – Please select a different departure point, to check for availability on another coach.

Glastonbury would strongly advise you only book a Ticket + Coach travel option which it is feasible for you to travel on, as bookings cannot be transferred, and your Festival tickets will be reliant on you travelling on the correct coach.

If I book a ticket + coach travel option do I have to travel on the coach?

Yes. For Ticket + Coach travel options you will only be sent your coach tickets in advance – your Festival entry tickets will be handed out on the coach.

Travel on your chosen coach is mandatory – Please do not book a Ticket + Coach travel option unless you are certain you will be able to travel on the coach you have selected.

Before booking in the ticket + coach travel resale, please consider the following;

  • Are you able to sit on a coach for the required length of time without having the option of taking regular breaks when you want to.
  • All the coaches will be full, please consider whether you will be comfortable being on a busy coach in close proximity to other passengers.
  • Coaches will have at least one toilet on board, however, please note these will not be wheelchair accessible and will not be regularly cleaned during the coach journey.
  • If you intend on applying for a PA ticket and your application is successful, this person must travel with you on your designated coach. Please book this additional seat when making your ticket + coach travel booking.

Can I book ticket + coach travel options from different destinations at the same time?

No, you can only book Ticket + Coach travel options from one destination in one transaction.

Can I book a coach seat for my child or accessibility pa to travel with me if they don’t have a festival ticket?

All passengers including children aged 12 and under, and people attending as PA/Companions, must have a valid coach ticket to travel.

Please be aware that seats are extremely limited on some services in the resale, and orders will be served on a first come first served basis at the time of booking. Once these have sold out we cannot accept further applications for additional seats.

See Tickets cannot guarantee all coaches will have wheelchair access and storage facilities. If you require wheelchair access or wheelchair storage please contact [email protected] and [email protected] upon completing your booking.

Can I still book a campervan, tipi, worthy view, sticklinch or car park ticket?

Car park tickets will be available when purchasing a general admission ticket during the resale on Sunday 21st April. Any Campervan/Caravan, Tipi, Sticklinch and Worthy View cancellations will go back on sale at 11am (BST) on Sunday 21st April, via glastonbury.seetickets.com. Accommodation bookings would need to be paid in full at the time of booking.

Naturally, you won’t be able to book a car parking or campervan/caravan place if you’re booking a ticket + coach travel option, though.

What does ‘all available tickets have now been allocated ’mean?

As you know, there are only very limited numbers of tickets available in the resales, so once orders are being processed for all the tickets that are available, it will no longer be possible to access the booking page, and you will most likely see a message that ‘All available tickets have now been allocated’ – If you see this message, please refresh the page, as any orders which cannot be processed will be released back to sale.

Once all ticket purchases have been processed, the website will display a ‘SOLD OUT’ message and no more tickets will be released back to sale.

Access facilities & how to apply

Car park tickets will be available when purchasing a general admission ticket during the resale on Sunday 21st April. Any Campervan/Caravan, Tipi, Sticklinch and Worthy View cancellations will go back on sale at 11am (BST) on Sunday 21st April, via glastonbury.seetickets.com. Accommodation bookings would need to be paid in full at the time of booking.

Naturally, you won’t be able to book a car parking or campervan/caravan place if you’re booking a ticket + coach travel option, though.

What To Expect In The Resale

Following the November ticket sales, any tickets which have since been cancelled/refunded will be made available in late April. As with previous sales, tickets will be exclusively sold at glastonbury.seetickets.com and demand is expected to significantly outweigh the number of tickets available

A limited number of people will be given access to the booking site at any one time. Whilst you are waiting to access the booking site you will be directed to a holding page until there is space on the booking page. The page will automatically refresh to look for space on the booking page every 20 seconds.

If the amount of traffic on the website is particularly high, you may see a reduced version of the See Tickets booking site, with a minimal holding page. This does not mean the site has crashed.

Once you reach the first page of the booking site, you will be asked to enter the registration number and registered postcode for the lead booker and, in the General Admission resale, up to 3 other individuals or 1 other individual in the Ticket + Coach option resale.

When you proceed, the details you have provided will be displayed on the next page.

Please check that these are the people you expect to be booking tickets for, as these cannot be changed once your proceed with your booking.

If you are booking a Ticket + Coach travel option, you will be asked to choose a departure town (and time for towns with multiple departures). It is only possible to book tickets from one departure town in a single transaction. If the option you have selected is not available, please choose a different town or day that is convenient for you. Travel on the coach you have selected is mandatory in order to receive your Festival ticket, so please only book on routes that are feasible for you.

Once all of your information is correct, you will be able to add optional elements such as car parking passes (General Admission ticket bookings only) and TicketPlan Refund Protection.

Once you reach the payment page you will have 5 minutes to submit your payment information, so please take your time to enter this information accurately. The time remaining will be shown in the top right hand side of your screen.

Please note, your registration numbers will be locked for up to 10 minutes if your details are entered incorrectly, an attempt to book is already held against your registration number, or your 5 minutes on the booking page ends. If the transaction fails and tickets are still available, your registration number will be released to give you the chance to try again.

If the page ‘hangs’ and you can’t get any further, try pressing back once and then continue your booking from that point.

If that doesn’t help, close your browser and start again. Please don’t continue to refresh the page more than 10 minutes after entering your details as your access to the page will have expired. You will need to close the browser and start again to gain fresh access to booking page.

Are there any other ways of getting to Glastonbury 2024 apart from the resale?

Yes – In addition to the upcoming ticket resales, some other opportunities for getting to Glastonbury include working and volunteering at the Festival, as well as entering competitions, once these options make themselves available.

Lineup & Rumours

As mentioned above, the first announcement line-up poster was revealed earlier last month (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.

Now that the first poster has been revealed, going by previous years, we can expect the full line-up announcement sometime at the end of May, with a string of individual area line-up announcements in between.

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.

Other News

After concluding on Thursday, 28th March, Glastonbury brought their latest charity campaign’s total donations – raised in support of people affected by conflict – to over £1 million.

The Crowdfunder appeal, which launched in early March and came in the form of a raffle, allowed participants to win one of 20 pairs of tickets donated by the Festival to its sold-out 2024 event.

Raising more than £122,060 just within 10 hours after launching on the 1st of March, the donations rapidly increased to £335,560 less than 96 hours later, with the prize draw finally concluding (28th March) at 12pm after raising a sum total of £639,720 from 33,606 supporters – Glastonbury Festival then matched that amount, bringing the total raised to £1,279,440.

In other news, 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.

Meanwhile, the Festival has been 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.
