The Field of Avalon is the second area to reveal its line-up for this year’s Glastonbury Festival, after the Acoustic Stage – which was announced just last week (12th April).

After being held for the first time in two years in 2022 and returning in 2023 -following its forced cancellation in 2020 and 2021 due to the worldwide pandemic – the Somerset event will be back this summer and run between 26th and 30th June 2024.

Announcing the news this morning (Tuesday, 16th April) at 10am sharp, Glastonbury officials said: “We’re excited to reveal the fantastic Field of Avalon line-up for Glastonbury 2024!”

Known for its origins in folk, the Field Of Avalon hosts roots music through to soul, punk, pop, blues & ska and will come alive once again in the heart of Worthy Farm with the spirit of Albion Fayre for the 2024 edition of Glastonbury Festival this summer.

Today’s announcement poster (shown below) adds another 25 acts and artists to the ever-growing Glastonbury 2024 bill – including the likes of Baby Queen, Frank Turner, Skindred, Flyte, Caity Baser, Elles Bailey, Billie Marten, All Saints star Shaznay Lewis, Scottish singer, actress, and television personality Lulu, and many more.

Like an island in the sea of Glastonbury, the Field of Avalon maintains its unbroken connection to the earthy Eden. Once part of the Greenfields, it remains one of the original areas still visited by a diverse lineage of legendary musicians, artists and fellow pilgrims. Festival travellers come to rest their weary legs and recharge with a pint of ale, delicious food and some of the most eclectic musical programs on site.

When visiting the Field of Avalon area in 2024, Glasto-goers can expect “days of eclectic music representing the best in the world of contemporary, roots and folk music, a gender-equal line-up and intimate, never-forget Glastonbury moments”.

Lineup & Rumours

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 71 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

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.

Ticket Resale

Meanwhile, earlier this month (9th April), Glastonbury officials revealed the dates for the resale of tickets to its highly anticipated sold-out 2024 Festival.

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

⏰ Ticket + Coach: Thu 18th April, 6pm.
⏰ General Admission: Sun 21st April, 9am.
⏰ Accommodation: Sun 21st April, 11am.

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

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

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.

⚠️ 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
