Glastonbury has announced its festival tickets will go on sale this week, but budding attendees will have to be quick on the draw to get their hands on them.
The festival is coming back this year after being forced to cancel in both 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. While some tickets from 2020 have rolled over, a sale is taking place since some space has been freed up with people canceling their previous tickets.
It has not been announced how many tickets are up for sale but they are infamous for selling out extremely quickly. In a statement on the Glastonbury website, the festival organizers said: “As in previous years, the exact number of tickets in the resale will not be announced. But it is a limited quantity.”

If you want to throw in your lot for a chance of attending Glastonbury this year, make sure you’re quick. With the concert set to run from Wednesday, June 22 to Sunday, June 26, here is everything you need to know.
When is the Glastonbury Festival ticket resale?
Glastonbury organizers have announced that the sale of canceled tickets will take place on Thursday, March 24 at 6pm for coach package tickets. Meanwhile, general admission tickets will be sold on Sunday, March 24 at 9am.
How much does a ticket cost?
Tickets will cost £280 plus a £5 booking per person. Furthermore, secure delivery of general admission tickets will rack up a charge of £9.30 for postage per order – for coach package e-Ticket delivery this will cost £2.50 per order.
UK tickets can be paid for with a UK debit card, Visa, or Mastercard credit card. Meanwhile, international tickets can only be bought with Visa credit cards or Mastercard credit cards. The full price of the ticket must be paid in full at the time of booking because the deposit scheme for 2022 is now closed.
Where can I buy a ticket?
There are no ticket stations or shops where you can go to buy a ticket – it must all be done online. Glastonbury’s organizers have set it up so that tickets in the resale can only be bought from the SeeTickets website here.
You cannot buy a ticket if you haven’t registered your details first. The registration window is now closed and will not reopen until after the sale.
When you go to purchase your tickets you will need to have the registration details of every person in your party to hand, including postcode and registration number, as well as your payment details. You can check your registration details here.
How many tickets am I allowed to buy?
Depending on which resale you attempt to buy your ticket on will determine how many you can buy per transaction. In the general admission sale on March 27, you can purchase up to four tickets per transaction. You can only book one ticket per registration.
If you plan on buying tickets in the coach package sale on the March 24, you can only purchase two tickets per transaction as the number of seats available per coach is limited.
