The scramble for Glastonbury Festival tickets begins...
GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL tickets go on sale from tomorrow (April 1). As well as from the nme.com online ticket service – see below – you can buy them from selected record stores such as HMV. There’s also an information line – charged at 50p per minute – on 090670 80808 with updated details on buying tickets and travel arrangements closer to the actual festival dates (June 25, 26, 27).
They cost ’85 including camping and parking and are limited to four per applicant; in previous years, they have sold out quickly. You cannot buy tickets at the gate and people without valid tickets will be prevented from travelling to the festival site.
The line-up will be announced when it is published in the festival souveneir program, though the semi-official Glastonbury Festival website ([url=]http://www.glastonbury-festival.co.uk/) lists most of the acts so far firmed up to play.
