Glastonbury resale tickets 2019
There's another chance to be part of the biggest festival in the world this summer: here's how and when to get Glastonbury resale tickets 2019
Either way the festival is, of course, long sold out. But with luck and careful planning there is another chance to get hold of Glastonbury tickets. Resale is when people that successfully booked and paid deposits do not pay the full ticket balance by 7 April. These unpaid tickets are released back for sale in two batches: coach tickets go on sale on at 6pm on Thursday 25 April and general entry tickets are released at 9am on Sunday 28 April.
Sure, the ticket quantities are far smaller than the first time around but it's still worth a chance if you're hoping to hang out at Worthy Farm this June. Here are Culture Whisper's tried and tested tips for getting hold of Glastonbury resale tickets.
1. Make sure you are registered
In order to even try your luck in the ticket sales stake, you must first register. Click here to enter details and gain the vital registration number. You need to provide full name and address details along with uploading a passport quality photo (an iphone snap suffices). All tickets are personally ID'ed to prevent resales to touts.
Thanks to GDPR updates and the need for up-to-date photos, even the most wizened of Glasto-goers may need to update their account and check details are tickety-boo before thinking about tickets. Click here to check your existing registration and tweak now.
2. Coach vs standard entry
As part of their eco ethos, Glastonbury minimizes its carbon footprint by encouraging festival-goers to journey together on coaches rather than in individual cars. There are services from over 75 UK locations, direct to the Worthy Farm site. Coach tickets are released first, so it makes tactical sense to try and book them (then try again for standard entry if you don't succeed). But beware: if you book coach tickets you need to actually travel by coach. Tickets are handed out on the buses, when you arrive at the festival.
3. Be prepared to pay in full
General admission tickets are £248 + £5 booking fee. Coach tickets are more, with prices varying depending on the distance of the journey. Any tickets purchased in the re-sales must be paid in full upon booking so make sure you have the funds ready.
4. Think tactics
Have your bank card and that registration number ready; you will need both. Be poised at your computer, with a reliable internet connection, before the booking opens. Multi-taskers may want to double up by trying on their phones simultaneously.
Recruit willing friends and family to load the booking page too. You can book up to six tickets per transaction. She who makes it past the online queue will need the registration numbers for all the group – so send around a list in advance.
As ever with high-demand online booking, much of the battle with the online queue is pure luck, so there's certainly safety in numbers.
