Glastonbury Festival has been given permission to increase its capacity to 210,000 by Mendip District Council. The number of public tickets available will increase by 7,000 to 142,000. The extra capacity was sought “in order to avoid an increase in the ticket price” and 7,000 extra tickets will be allocated to those fans arriving by public transport. Organisers may not use the increase capacity while 2020.
Glastonbury’s licence makes provision for 63,000 staff, volunteers, performers and traders and 5,000 Sunday tickets sold exclusively to local residents. It is the largest greenfield festival in the world.
