For anyone trying for a Glastonbury ticket this year, no doubt the nerves will now well and truly set in.
Registration closed at 5pm on Monday, September 30 meaning only those who signed up with their details will be able to try for tickets.
The first ticket sale of the year takes place this evening when the coach packages become available.
Demand is likely to be at an all time high for tickets this year as 2020 marks Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary with line-up rumours already including Paul McCartney, Spice Girls and more.
If this will be your first time trying for Glastonbury tickets then prepare for a nerve-wrecking 20 minutes of refreshing your Internet tabs.
If you’re a Glastonbury regular you’ll probably have your tactics set – but just in case we’ve rounded-up the best way to secure tickets as well as all the details you need for the coach packages and an update on all the rumoured performers.
How are coach package tickets different to normal tickets and what do they include?
As part of the Festival’s initiative to encourage Festival goers to reduce audience transport emissions, deposits for combined Coach + Festival ticket packages will go on sale at 6pm on Thursday, October 3 2019, giving the opportunity to book coach package tickets ahead of the general release of tickets.
When booking you will be asked to choose a Coach Departure Town and Coach Departure Day (Wednesday or Thursday). Please note you must choose one option for your group as a whole – you cannot select multiple options within one transaction.
Ticket balances for coach packages will be due in the balance payment window, between the 1st and 7th April 2020.
Anyone booking a coach package must be certain they will be travelling by coach as you will only be given your tickets when you get on the coach – this is the main difference to the tickets which will be released on Sunday.
Do coach packages come with any benefits?
For the first time, Glastonbury is giving anyone who purchases a coach package will be given priority booking for Worthy View Accomodation.
Worthy View is the festival’s pre-erected camping area which comes with its showers and toilets too.
