Fans must sign up by Friday (Mar 14) to be eligible for tickets

Fans have just three days to register in order to stand a chance of getting tickets for this year’s Glastonbury festival.

Registration – which is required as the event uses a series of anti-touting measures, including issuing tickets with photo IDs, closes on Friday (March 14).

Anyone who wants to buy tickets when they go on sale on April 6 must have registered before that date.

To register, you need to head to the Glastonbury Festival registration homepage and submit your details.

On this page you will need to upload a passport-style photograph of your face. This will be printed on your ticket, should you succeed in buying one, and will be used by security staff to identify you when you enter the festival, as a measure to stamp out ticket touting.

See the Glastonbury Festival registration information page for details.

Fans outside of the UK must also register online.

Around 400,000 people registered for Glastonbury tickets last year, with 145,000 tickets available.

Those who register for tickets will then be eligible to buy tickets from 9am on April 6 from the Glastonbury website, or by phoning 0800 0792 008 (004411 5993 4183 outside of the UK). Tickets are likely to sell out within a few hours on the day.

This year’s festival is being headlined by Kings Of Leon, Jay-Z and The Verve, and takes place between June 27 and 29.
