Glastonbury Festival has moved its ticket sale back by two weeks to ensure those that would like to buy a ticket are registered, and therefore eligible to purchase one.
Tickets with coach travel for the UK’s flagship festival will go on sale on Thursday, November 16, while general admission tickets are set to go on sale on Sunday, November 19. The ticket sales were originally due to be held today (Thursday) and on Sunday (November 5).
Organisers had alerted those with a registration pre-dating 2020 of a scheduled review of the details held by partner See Tickets in the Glastonbury Festival registration database. This was to make sure that details were up-to-date and to not store information longer than necessary. If registrants wanted to keep their account, they were asked to update information, with the registration period closing on October 30 ahead of the ticket sale.
“Unfortunately, it has come to light that some individuals hoping to buy tickets for 2024 have discovered after Monday’s registration deadline that they are no longer registered, despite believing they were,” said a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“Out of fairness to those individuals, we will be re-opening the window for registration at 12 noon on Monday, 6 November. It will remain open until 5pm on Monday, 13 November.”
Organisers added: “We apologise for the late change to the ticket sale dates, but we want to ensure that everyone who would like to buy a ticket for next year’s Festival is able to confirm their registration ahead of the sale.”
Next year’s line-up has yet to be revealed for the summer festival, which takes place at Worthy Farm, Somerset.
