But if you are making your own way to the site, then standard tickets go on sale on Sunday, October 6, and are likely to sell out quickly.
Tickets cost £210 plus a £5 booking fee. But you only have to pay a £50 deposit at this time.
Glastonbury Festival has issued the following advice ahead of next Sunday's ticket grab:
DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR GETTING A TICKET?
- Make sure you have all your registration details (including postcodes) ready and checked in advance, and that there are sufficient cleared funds on the card you intend to use to book, and that you know all the security information for that card.
- Be persistent and patient – there are likely to be more people trying to buy tickets than there are tickets available, which would mean that not everyone who wants a ticket will be able to book one. But the longer you try the more likely you are to get a ticket, so don't give up after the first half an hour.
- If you’re booking online, stick to one tab, in one window, so you can focus on entering your details without confusing your browser or getting timed out. (Once you’re on the booking site you get 20 minutes to submit all your details; so if you have lots of tabs refreshing the same page, the clock will start as soon as the first one of those tabs hits the site, which may have been a window you weren’t keeping an eye on.)
Who will be headlining has not been announced yet. See here for the latest gossip on who it might be.
