Glastonbury 2024: when is the line-up revealed and when is the ticket re-sale?

Here we go: the road to Glastonbury 2024 has begun! And there isn’t long to wait now. Glasto 2023 saw 200,000 people head down to Worthy Farm for the UK’s biggest festival. Now, you’re all eager to find out how to get into this year’s event.

The Somerset-based festival is renowned not just for being one of the biggest festivals in the world but also one of the hardest to get tickets for. It started when coach and ticket packages sold out in 25 minutes, and then the general ticket sale sold out in just under an hour. But don’t worry – all hope is not lost and a re-sale is coming soon (along with the line-up announcement)

The Glastonbury line-up typically won’t be announced before tickets go on sale, but expect a bill fitting for a musical extravaganza. The 2023 line-up was packed with performances from the likes of Elton John, Arctic Monkeys, Guns N’ Roses, Lana Del Rey, Phoenix, Queens Of The Stone Age, Kelis, Warpaint, Fatboy Slim, Fred Again.., Lil Nas X, Lizzo, and many more. However, there are already some pretty huge rumours for who’ll be headlining in 2024.

Tickets for Glastonbury 2024 first went on sale in November – here’s all the information you need to help you secure passes for next year’s festival.

When will Glastonbury 2024 take place? 

It has been announced that, keeping with tradition, next year’s festival will be taking place on the final weekend of June from Wednesday June 26 through to Sunday June 30, 2024 at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.

How much will tickets for Glastonbury 2024 be? 

Standard tickets for Glastonbury 2024 will cost £355 plus a £5 booking fee. As is now tradition, you can pay a £75 deposit per attendee before paying the full balance in the first week of April.

If you’re buying coach tickets with your festival ticket, you must pay for the coach ticket in full at the time of purchase. Coach ticket prices vary depending on departure point, but typically sit between £40 and £150.

How and when do I to register for tickets to Glastonbury 2024? 

Before you can even think about getting in the dreaded online queue for tickets when the on-sale day arrives, you need to register to be able to access tickets. This is a move adopted by Glastonbury to help cut down on touts and means each general admission ticket will come with a photo of the ticket holder printed on it.

You can register on the Glastonbury website here between 12pm GMT on Monday, November 6, and 5pm GMT on Monday, November 13.

Back in August, the festival gave advice for those wishing to get tickets and told fans that any Glastonbury ticket registrations submitted prior to 2020 need to be reviewed and confirmed before the next ticket sale. You can do that here.

When will tickets for Glastonbury 2024 go on sale? 

The ticket sales for the 2024 festival were delayed by two weeks on November 2. Coach and ticket packages then went on sale at 6pm GMT on Thursday November 16 (and sold out in just 25 minutes) with the general sale following at 9am GMT on Sunday November 19 when they sold out in just under an hour. See below for details on the re-sale.

 

When will the ticket re-sale for Glastonbury 2024 be? 

If you missed out on tickets in the first two sales, there’s still a chance to grab tickets in the re-sale. These are tickets where the original purchasers haven’t paid their balance in full by the cut-off date in early April and will be put back up for sale. Typically, the re-sale will take place a few weeks after the deadline for paying off the ticket balance, so expect it to take place towards the end of April 2024.

Expect there to another hectic rush after re-sale tickets for Glasto 2023 sold out in just six minutes back in April.

When will the line-up for Glastonbury 2024 be announced? 

Don’t expect to know the line-up for Glastonbury before you buy your tickets – the full bill isn’t usually revealed until much closer to the event. Typically, festival organisers will reveal one or two big names towards the end of the year, with headliners and the first big line-up announcement taking place in the early spring.

The full line-up will then be unveiled around a month before the festival is set to take place. These dates are not set in stone, however, and are liable to change. Last year, the line-up was revealed on March 3, so here’s hoping we can reveal the bill very soon. On March 7, 2024, Emily Eavis revealed that the full line-up reveal would be made “next week” (March 11-18) – so keep your eyes peeled…

Meanwhile, check out the frontrunners for who is rumoured to headline Glastonbury 2024 here. So far, fans have speculated that SZA may be a potential headliner. The R&B songstress is already set to appear at BST Hyde Park this year on June 29, leaving a Glastonbury-sized gap in her touring schedule. Other names theorised to headline this year’s edition include Dua Lipa, Rihanna and Coldplay.

This comes after Rihanna recently returned to the stage to perform her first full gig in eight years at a billionaire’s wedding in India.

How can I get into Glastonbury 2024 for free? 

Didn’t manage to get a ticket or simply can’t afford one? There are alternative ways to get into the festival – as long as you’re prepared to put in a bit of work. Numerous charities have a presence at the festival and require volunteers to help out across the weekend. In return for your ticket, you’ll be asked to complete shifts across the festival – the length and number of these vary, depending on which charity you attend with. Be warned: you may have to pay a deposit for your ticket, which can be the same price as the entry to the festival. For more information, visit Glastonbury’s jobs page.

Oxfam also put out a call for charity volunteers at Glastonbury 2024, as well as music fans to help out at Reading & Leeds, Download and more.
