Glastonbury 2014: 15,000 tickets will be available to buy ahead of general on sale date
Festival bosses confirm coach package tickets will be available to buy three days earlier than ordinary tickets
As revealed during a Twitter Q+A with fans that took place last night (September 26), the tickets will pair a full festival pass with transport to Worthy Farm in June next year. 15,000 of the 135,000 tickets for Glastonbury 2014 will be sold this way from 6pm on October 3 - three whole days before the majority of the tickets go on general sale at 9am on October 6. Michael Eavis has previously revealed that over one million people have already registered for tickets for next year's event.
Other questions answered during the Q+A focused mainly on payment details and registration rules for the festival. It was confirmed that UK buyers can only pay for tickets using a debit card and that payment for the maximum six deposits can come via six different debit cards. The reason for dropping the maximum number of tickets from eight to six per transaction, it was explained, is is to allow more people a chance to buy tickets. See the full Q&A here.
Prices for the 2014 event have risen by £5, meaning that the overall ticket price will be £210 plus £5 booking fee. Successful ticket buyers will be required to pay a £50 deposit on October 6. Earlier this year, Eavis also revealed that he already has all three headliners in place for next year's event.
Bookmakers have been taking odds on the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Prince and David Bowie to take the top spots. Foo Fighters are currently favourites to fill the coveted Saturday night Pyramid Stage slot, whilst rumours of a 'Definitely Maybe' 20th anniversary reunion have given Oasis odds of 10/1 to make an appearance.
