Glastonbury 2009 ticket scheme announced

Michael Eavis says festivalgoers can now guarantee their place

Glastonbury 2009 ticket scheme announced
Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis has announced ticket details for Glastonbury 2009.

As previously reported by NME.COM, 100,000 festivalgoers will be able to place a £50 deposit on their tickets - guaranteeing them entry - this October.

Eavis has now elaborated on his ticketing plans. In a statement emailed to people who registered their details for the festival in previous years, he said: "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, our registered customers 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."

People who haven't yet registered to apply for tickets to the festival will have the chance to do so from September 1.

An announcement regarding ticket prices will be made on Glastonburyfestivals.co.uk soon.
