Glastonbury delays ticket sales after fans report registration problems | Ents & Arts News

The Glastonbury ticket sale has been delayed by two weeks.

“This is to ensure that everyone who would like to buy a ticket is registered and therefore eligible to purchase one,” festival organisers said.

“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.

“Out of fairness to those individuals, we will be re-opening the window for registration at 12 noon on Monday, 6th November. It will remain open until 5pm on Monday, 13th November.”

The announcement came just hours before the first batch of tickets for the 2024 festival were due to go on sale at 6pm on Thursday 2 November.

Glastonbury apologised for the late change.

The festival says registration is essential to prevent touting as each ticket has the photograph of the registered ticket holder with security checks in place before entering.

Tickets are non-transferable.

Tickets for the coveted festival held at Worthy Farm in Somerset cost £355 (plus a £5 booking fee), £20 more than this year’s event that took place in June.

Next year’s iconic music spectacle will run from 26 -30 June 2024, though the line-up is yet to be announced.

This year, the world-famous Pyramid Stage welcomed rock bands Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses, as Sir Elton John headlined the final day.

Other famous names included Royal Blood, Lil Nas X, Queens of the Stone Age, Lana Del Rey and Fatboy Slim.
