Registration for Glastonbury festival tickets reopens
Fans wanting to buy tickets to festival must register between now and April 20
Registration for tickets to this year's Glastonbury Festival has reopened today (March 18).
Sunday, April 21 will be the last opportunity for fans to get hold of tickets to the festival with anyone hoping to purchase tickets required to register online beforehand. Those who have registered for previous Glastonbury ticket sales are not required to register as their details are saved. Registration will be temporarily suspended before and during the main ticket selling period, so fans must register before tickets go on sale. Anyone who signed up prior to the 2007 Festival will need to submit a new registration.
All of the Glastonbury tickets that have gone on sale so far have sold out immediately. A standard Glastonbury ticket is priced at £205 with additional charges of a £5 booking fee per ticket and £6 P&P per booking.
The only acts confirmed for Glastonbury so far will appear on the newly renamed for 2013 Dance Village. Now known as Silver Hayes, the area takes its name from one of the oldest meadows on Worthy Farm and will see acts playing the new 7,000-capacity Sonic supertent. In addition to the Sonic tent there will be the Wow Stage, which will feature new and smaller acts and a brand new installation named Gully. Gully is described as "combining an open air stage and a pulsating street of sound systems and stalls featuring the best new DJs, MCs and live music".
US rapper Nas is the first name confirmed to headline the Sonic tent with Disclosure, Hot Natured, David Rodigan, Sub Focus, Alunageorge, Eats Everything, Rudimental and The Congos also confirmed to appear across Silver Hayes throughout the weekend.
Festival organiser Emily Eavis stated last week that many of the names put forward as potential headliners are "nonsense" and added that the identity of the real headline acts will be revealed soon.
