How do I get Glastonbury tickets? Sadly, you must have already registered to book tickets for 2017. Registration is now closed but will reopen after the ticket sale.
Once you’ve had your registration confirmed, you can book up to 6 tickets at glastonbury.seetickets.com on Sunday October 9. You’ll have to pay a deposit of £50 (plus the coach fare if you’re booking a coach package) at this point, using a debit card only (unless you live abroad). The rest of the ticket price (plus P&P) is due in the first week of April 2017.
If you don’t pay your balance you’ll lose your ticket (plus £15 of your deposit) and it’ll go into the ticket resale in April. Tickets bought in the resale must be paid for in full at the time of booking. Keep an eye on this page nearer the time for details of the resale.
Add-on tickets for tipis, campervans, caravans, car parking and upscale Worthy View camping go on sale between October and spring 2017.
