Here we go: the road to Glastonbury 2024 begins! 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 next 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.
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.

When will the ticket re-sale for Glastonbury 2024 be?
If you miss 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.
