The stale mud from 2014’s festival may still be clinging onto your carpet, but Glastonbury 2015 is already on the horizon. Organisers have confirmed that tickets for next year’s event - taking place from 24 June to Sunday, 28 June - will go on sale at the beginning of October.
Standard weekend tickets will go on sale at 9am on Sunday 5 October, while 15,000 coach tickets will be sold in advance of the general sale at 7pm on Wednesday 1 October as part of the Somerset festival’s “continued commitment to green travel”.
The full price of a ticket is £220 plus a £5 booking fee and purchasers will be able to book up to six tickets per transaction. As part of the festival’s efforts to beat touting, those wishing to purchase tickets will need to register with the festival in advance of tickets going on sale. Registration closes at 23:59 on Tuesday 30 September and ticket purchasers will only be able to book a ticket by paying a £50 deposit per person, online at glastonbury.seetickets.com.
The annual festival’s full line-up is usually announced in the spring months, but following 2014’s bill topping sets from Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian - all of which made their Glastonbury headline debuts - there is likely to be a slew of rumours regarding reunions, veteran rock stars and pop heavyweights circulating soon, from Radiohead to Rihanna.
