Glastonbury Festival 2017 ticket guide and tips

Glastonbury 2017 will take place 21st-25th June, 2017.  Registration is now closed for the main ticket sale (you can register for the resale in spring)

There are 135,000 tickets up for grabs for Glasto in 2017, that may sound like a lot but demand in recent years has simply outstripped supply. As part of the Festival’s continued commitment to green travel,  15,000 coach + ticket packages will – as in previous years – be sold in advance of the general sale. These coach + ticket packages will go on sale at 6pm BST – Thursday, 6th October 2016, via, rewarding green travellers with the chance to be the first to secure their Glastonbury 2017 tickets.

Standard weekend tickets will go on sale at 9am BST on Sunday, 9th October. As in previous years, tickets will be sold exclusively at You may book up to six tickets per transaction. Festival goers will be able to book a ticket by paying a deposit, with the balance due in spring 2016.

Tickets are reserved with a deposit of £50. The total ticket price for Glastonbury 2017 will be £238 + £5 booking fee per ticket (children aged 12 and under are admitted free of charge and do not need a ticket).

Please remember if you opt to get a coach and ticket package, you MUST travel on the coach of your chosen destination. Don’t confuse these packages with buying a standard ticket and travelling to the festival by a National Express coach. You can still travel by coach if you opt to buy a standard ticket. 

We DO NOT recommend using an auto-refresher app as stated in Glastonbury’s T&Cs:-
“Glastonbury Festival will cancel all bookings made using multi-hit software or applications to ensure everyone has a fair and equal chance of getting a ticket.” 

Tips for getting Tickets

  • Transfer all ticket money into one account, remember only 6 tickets per transaction and only a £50 deposit per ticket is needed. Share the details of the bank account with all the people that are trying to get tickets. 
  • Be persistent, patient, and calm!
  • Be aware that tickets are not held whilst you’re entering your details, so you need to be ready to enter all your details quickly and accurately once you reach the booking page. Access to the booking page is limited to 10 minutes from the point you enter your registration details
  • If there is a group of you trying to get tickets make sure you have everyone’s registration numbers and postcodes.
  • If a number of your group is trying to get tickets don’t worry about double bookings as you can only buy 1 ticket per registration number
  • Have all the details you need ready to copy and paste
  • Try different links not just the “ticket homepage”
  • Arm your self with a laptop, tablet and phone and use as many IPs as possible. There is strength in numbers!
  • Have different devices on different internet connections trying for tickets.
  • Keep hitting F5 to refresh until you see the booking page.
  • Past advice from Glastonbury Festival has been to stick to one tab in one browser window.
  • If you get through to a booking page and it freezes DO NOT CLICK REFRESH, click back once
  • Keep in touch using Whatsapp, Facebook etc.

If you are unsuccessful remember there is always the resale of unwanted tickets in Spring, as well as the opportunity to work the festival for a number of charities and companies. Unpaid and paid opportunities are available with different shift patterns and chances to experience the festival.
