Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis has announced a new system to book tickets in advance for Glastonbury 2009, which takes place at Somerset's Worthy Farm next June 24-28.
From 9am on Sunday October 5, tickets for the UK's biggest and best outdoor festival will be available to buy at £175 each plus £5 booking fee - or be reserved for a £50 deposit per ticket (the balance will be payable by February 1 2009). Festival-goers already registered will be able to buy up to six tickets for registered friends and family in one transaction.
Says Eavis: ”We have come up with a scheme that will allow people a much longer period to plan and pay for their tickets, while still continuing the battle against ticket touting.
“By paying as little as £50 up front this year, festival-goers from all over the world will be able to guarantee a ticket for next year’s event. At the same time the very successful registration scheme will ensure that tickets will only go to those named individuals who have reserved them in advance.”
If you're not already signed up registration re-opens on Monday September 1 at www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk. Those without internet access can apply for a registration form (enclosing an SAE) to Glastonbury, PO Box 2445, Glasgow G40 9AG.
All new Glastonbury info will be available as and when it happens here at q4music.com and at www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk.
