Glastonbury Tickets On Sale Tomorrow

by | 04 October 2008

Tickets for next year’s Glastonbury music festival will go on sale on tomorrow morning eight months before the event itself takes place.

Festival goers will be able to reserve their places by putting down a £50 deposit or they can buy tickets outright. But they must be pre-registered as in previous years in order to obtain them.

The early ticket sale comes after last year's event failed to sell out ahead of the first day, as had been usual for several years before.

Organiser Michael Eavis also said the scheme was to ensure tickets went to genuine fans and make it easier for them to pay by spreading the cost.

Tickets for the three-day festival will cost £175 and 100,000 tickets will be made available.

Mr Eavis said he was: "confident that we have developed the fairest ticketing operation available anywhere, and we are ready to go."

"With the new scheme, backed by the all-important registration process, everyone has an equal chance of getting a ticket. And most importantly, every ticket will be going to a genuine festival-goer direct.

"I'm also convinced that the £50 deposit will help a lot of people to spread the payment for their ticket over a much longer period."

Next year's Glastonbury runs for five days from 24th to 28th June with headline acts expected to be announced pretty soon. The Ting Ting's and Franz Ferdinand are expected to be somewhere on the bill but U2, the Rolling Stones and Coldplay have been rule out by Michael Eavis's daughter Emily.
