Tickets for next year’s Glastonbury Festival (cap. 210,000) sold out in just under an hour yesterday, 19 November.

All tickets for the 2024 event were bought just before 10am. Organisers said the demand for the 2024 festival outstripped supply and festival ticket and coach packages sold out in 25 minutes on 16 November.

This year’s sale was postponed by two weeks for customers who did not realise their registration had expired. There will be a re-sale of any cancelled or returned tickets in spring 2024.

Organiser Emily Eavis, who collected the inagrual Editor’s Award at the Access All Areas Conference and Awards last week for Glastonbury’s pioneering sustainability work, said on Instagram, “We’re blown away that so many people want to come (we all still remember the years when they didn’t!) and I’m sorry that many of you missed out.”

Last year, around two-and-a-half million people tried to purchase tickets for the event, with just 210,000 available.

This year’s tickets cost £355 (plus a £5 booking fee), up from £335 for 2023’s event.

The event, which hosts more than 3,000 acts, will take place from 26-30 June at Worthy Farm, Somerset.
