With tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2022 selling out in 2020, it’s probably best to start thinking about how to attend future events.
Welcoming around 210,000 people each year, Glasto is the largest outdoor music festival in the world.
However, this does not mean that obtaining tickets is a simple task.

In 2019, 2.4 million people registered for tickets, with 100,000 within the first 36 minutes.
So how do you get tickets to the biggest event on the UK music calendar?
First, you need to register.
This is to avoid ticket sales. Tickets are not transferable.
Each ticket features the photo of the registered ticket holder with security checks carried out to ensure that only the person in the photo is admitted to the festival.
Whether you are booking a deposit for a festival ticket or a coach package, anyone, aged 13 or over, who intends to purchase a ticket must have their own valid registration number.
If you plan to buy tickets for other people, they must all be registered – and you will need their registration numbers and corresponding postcodes in order to buy tickets on their behalf.
Resale of tickets is strictly prohibited and will result in the cancellation of your order.
It sounds obvious, but it’s a quick and easy process that you can do anytime.
After that, it’s up to you to set an alarm, have the money – albeit for the deposit, ready to go.
Sometimes it’s best to try on a few devices, as the traffic to the website is very heavy and can be rather unreliable.
For local Somerset residents, it is possible to collect tickets before they go on sale to the public.
The local ticket sale allows local residents to take advantage of the Festival’s ticket deposit system, meaning that a single deposit of £50 per ticket was payable at the local ticket sale, with the balance payable on a date later.
The following towns and cities were eligible for the 2019 event – Doulting, East Pennard, Glastonbury, North Wootton, Pilton, Pylle, Shepton Mallet, West Bradley and West Pennard.
This was later expanded in 2020, with residents of Castle Cary, Coleford, Stoke St Michael, Street and Wells among a large handful of locations added.
