Shake off that post-Bestival/Festival No 6 daze – if you haven’t already, it’s time to get organised for the 2015 summer festival season. The daddy of them all, Glastonbury, has already announced the dates for 2015’s ticket sales.
Coach and ticket packages, which will be sold in advance of the general ticket issue, will be made available at 7pm on Wednesday 1 October, with general weekend tickets following at 9am on Sunday 5 October.
If you’ll be aged 13 or over when the Festival starts you’ll need to register before you can buy your ticket. You’ll be asked for basic contact details and to upload a passport photo (which is subject to an approval process) to be printed on your personalised, non-transferrable ticket. If you photo is accepted, they’ll e-mail you an unique registration number that you’ll need to quote when you book.
You’ll also need to re-register or edit your registration if you last registered for a festival earlier than Glastonbury 2007, or if you’ve changed your e-mail address. More recent registration numbers remain valid, but if you’re not sure you can check their database to see if you are registered.
Registration is already open but will be suspended at 23:59 on Tuesday 30 September and stay closed until tickets go on sale, so don’t get caught out – do it now! Registering doesn’t reserve or guarantee you a ticket and you’ll still need your trigger finger ready for when the tickets are released. You’ll be able to buy up to six tickets when you get through, but only with valid registration numbers for all of them.
Seetickets, who will again be handling Glastonbury ticketing, have said they intend to respond to registrations within 24 hours during the working week, so look out for that all-important e-mail, and don’t forget to check your spam or junk folder. If you haven’t heard anything within the stated time, you can also check the database to see if you’ve appeared. If in doubt, try again at https://glastonbury.seetickets.com/Registration/Register.
Glastonbury Festival takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset over five days and next year’s is planned for Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June 2015. As usual, acts are unlikely to be revealed before the tickets are sold. A standard adult camping ticket will cost £225 (inc booking fee) per person, with deposits of £50 per person payable on October 5th and the balance due in April 2015.
