Eavis aims to Stamp Out The Touts at this year's bash

Glastonbury Festival is introducing new measures to combat ticket touting.

Before any tickets can be bought, potential festival-goers must register their details with organisers ahead of the ticket on sale date of April 1.

A passport-sized photo must also be submitted, which will then be printed on the ticket to prevent touting.

Writing on the festival’s website, Michael Eavis said: “It’s a much fairer system. The people who buy the tickets on April 1 will be the people who are actually coming to the festival.”

Registration must take place between February 1 and February 28, either online or by post.
