We know what you’re thinking. Where is the Glastonbury line-up already? All that excitement in bagging the tickets (if you’re one of the lucky ones) – and now what? But hold your horses. The big reveal will come around faster than you think: usually, the first set of acts are announced in March, with the full line-up confirmed in May. Before you know it, June will be here, and you’ll be singing along to whoever is playing at Worthy Farm, ice-cold beer in hand. 

There’s plenty of rumours swirling around about who is going to play the fabled festival. Last year saw acts like Lana Del Rey, Fred Again, Arctic Monkeys and Elton John take to the stage – as well as around 3,000 other acts. That pretty much means there will be something for everyone, even if you’re not head-over-heels for the big headliners. 

If you’ve not managed to get your hands on those golden tickets the first time round, fear not. There’s always resale, which usually takes place in April. And there’s always watching the festival from the comfort of your own sofa and trying again next year. 

So, whether you have plans to camp, glamp, or catch up on TV, here’s everything you need to know about Glastonbury Festival 2024.

When is Glastonbury 2024?

Glastonbury 2024 starts on Wednesday June 26 and runs until Sunday June 30. Most of the music will be on June 28, 29 and 30, so if you’re not lucky enough to be heading to Worthy Farm IRL and you’re watching on the TV instead, those are the dates to pencil in your calendar. 

What’s the lineup this year?

So, we don’t exactly know the line-up is looking like for 2024 just yet, but there have been plenty of rumours. Emily Eavis recently dropped some pretty hefty hints, and we do know for sure that the Legends Slot will be played by a woman superstar, and two of the three headliners will be women. 

Madonna and Rihanna are just a couple of the names being thrown around amidst all the guessing, but it looks like we'll have to wait a while to know for sure. Keep an eye on this page for updates.  

How much are Glastonbury tickets? 

Tickets for Glastonbury 2024 are £360 — that’s £355, plus a £5 booking fee (and coach fees, if applicable). It’s an increase of £20 from the 2023 event, which cost £335 plus booking fee.

Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis put out a statement to justify the hike in 2023, 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, while still recovering from the huge financial impact of two years without a festival because of Covid.’

When do 2024 tickets go on sale? 

They’ve been and gone, we’re sorry to say. Tickets went on sale on Sunday, November 19, and coach ticket packages went on sale on November 16. 

When is the Glastonbury ticket resale?

The ticket resale usually takes place in April, but nothing has been announced by the official organisers as of yet.

How many Glastonbury tickets can you buy in the resale? 

You can usually purchase up to four tickets per transaction in the general admission resale, but only book one ticket per registration. Last year, the coach package resale was limited to two tickets per transaction.   

How can I watch Glastonbury 2024 at home?

If you’re not prepared to be trudging through Worthy Farm’s hallowed mud in June, much of the festival (as ever) will be available to watch and listen to. The BBC will be broadcasting a ton of stuff across TV, radio, BBC Sounds, BBC iPlayer and online.
