Glastonbury festival tickets sell out in less than an hour
Standard tickets to next year’s Glastonbury festival have sold out in less than an hour, organisers said.
The second batch of £360 tickets for the 2024 festival, taking place at Worthy Farm in Somerset, were all bought after being made available at 9am on Saturday.
In a post to X at 9.57am on Saturday morning, the organisers wrote: “Tickets for Glastonbury 2024 have now sold out. Our thanks to everyone who bought one and we’re sorry to those of you who missed out, on a morning when demand greatly exceeded supply.
“There will be a resale of any cancelled or returned tickets in spring 2024.”
Coach travel tickets went on sale on 16 November and organisers announced they sold out 25 minutes after they went live at 6pm.
Organisers posted on X: “The Glastonbury 2024 tickets with coach travel on sale this evening have now all been sold. Our thanks to everyone who bought one.”
Ticket sales for the festival had been pushed back by two weeks due to registration issues.
The first batch of tickets for the 2024 festival were due to go on sale at 6pm on 2 November for the coach package, while the general admission tickets were expected to go live on the morning of 5 November.
Customers had to register in advance to buy tickets for the world-famous event in an attempt to prevent touting.
Hours before the first batch of ticket sales, organisers said some fans had claimed they were not made aware that their registrations had expired and “out of fairness” to them the sale was being delayed.
Earlier this month, the Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis said reports that Madonna, Dua Lipa and Coldplay had been confirmed to headline Glastonbury next year were untrue.
The rumours began after Eavis, the daughter of Glastonbury’s founder, Michael Eavis, said the “legend” slot on Sunday teatime would go to a female artist. She told Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw’s Sidetracked podcast that a “really big” female US singer’s team had got in touch with her to say she was available, believed to be Madonna.
Last year, the headliner lineup was all male with Arctic Monkeys, Guns N’ Roses and Sir Elton John performing.
Next year’s festival is scheduled to take place on 26–30 June.
