The 2023 festival has only just wrapped up, but fans already want to know when Glastonbury tickets go on sale for 2024.

2023 has been a great year for music, with Capital's Summertime Ball seeing megastar Harry Styles take to the stage - amid the return of his Love on Tour, and pop sensation Taylor Swift finally announced her UK dates. But, of course, the festival everyone was most excited about was Glastonbury.

The world-famous music festival returned in summer 2023, with a stellar Glastonbury line-up. And in the aftermath, everyone wants to know how they can secure their place at Worthy Farm next year, so we've got all the ticket details we know so far about Glastonbury 2024.

When do Glastonbury tickets go on sale?

Glastonbury 2024 tickets are expected to go on sale in November 2023, though a sale date has not yet been revealed. Last year, tickets to the festival first went on sale at 6pm on Thursday November 3 for coach and ticket packages, with standard tickets becoming available at 9am on Sunday November 6.

We'll probably have to wait until October for the exact date to be revealed, and once it is tickets will go on sale at glastonbury.seetickets.com. Additional items such as Worthy View accommodation, Campervan passes, and tipis will be available for ticket holders to book later in the Autumn.

How to get a Glastonbury ticket for 2023

To get Glastonbury tickets, you will need to register in advance of purchasing, which can be done via a form on the Glastonbury website. Registration is currently open and will close a few days before tickets go on sale.

This means that all tickets to Glastonbury are individually personalised to the named ticket holder and are therefore strictly non-transferable. Security checks are carried out on arrival, and only the specified ticket holder will be admitted to the Festival.

Those registered will then be able to book tickets once they go on sale, with a maximum of six tickets per transaction. Those buying tickets for other people will need to make sure the individuals that they are purchasing for are also registered.

The registration requirement is part of an effort to stop large numbers of people from purchasing tickets only to sell them on for massively inflated prices.

If you have registered in the past, it’s best to check your registration and upload a new photo if your existing one is more than two years old.

If you registered for Glastonbury before 2010, you will need to register again due to registrations before then having been deleted.

Glastonbury tickets resale

Each year, there is a Glastonbury ticket resale which usually takes place around March or April. The ticket resale is where tickets for which the balance was not settled are put back on sale, on the same website as the tickets were originally bought from. 

Anyone wishing to purchase resale tickets will also need to be registered prior to the date they go on sale. These tickets must be bought in full - there is no deposit option - and there is a limit to the number of tickets each person can purchase.

How much is a ticket for Glastonbury 2024?

Ticket prices for Glastonbury 2024 have not been confirmed. A ticket to the 2023 festival cost £340 in total for general admission for the full weekend ( £335 for the ticket plus a £5 booking fee).

Those purchasing a ticket also need to pay a deposit. A statement on the Glastonbury website says: "A £50 deposit (plus coach fare if booking a ticket + coach travel) is payable when booking in November, which the balance payable in the first week of April 2023."

Tickets for2022's festival cost £265 plus a £5 booking fee, and the price hike left many disappointed, with one Twitter user saying, "That’s far too expensive. People should boycott and not try to buy tickets for next year. This should put you all off buying a ticket. You don’t need to go for that price!" and another adding, "I'd love to win the lottery. Maybe then I would be able to afford Glastonbury tickets." However, some music fans weren't put off by the ticket price, with one user tweeting, "If you think I’m willing to spend £350 on a ticket to the greatest place and biggest party on the plant then your right, I am".

Emily Eavis, co-organiser of Glastonbury festival, took to Twitter to defend 2023's ticket price, saying: "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."

What are the dates for Glastonbury 2024?

Glastonbury will take place Wednesday 26 - Sunday 30 June 2024, as the festival always takes place over the last week in June.

Traditionally, Glastonbury has a 'fallow year' - which means the event doesn't go ahead - every five years, to allow the land to rest after being visited by hundreds of thousands of festival goers. 

2018 was the last fallow year, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic Glastonbury was cancelled in 2020 and 2021, meaning the next fallow year is not likely to be until 2027 - though this hasn't been confirmed.
