Glastonbury reveal 2009 ticket scheme details

Plus price for next year's festival announced

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis has revealed the details of a new booking scheme for next year’s festival.

As previously reported, Glastonbury stated their intentions to run a deposit scheme for the 2009 festival and now the organiser has confirmed how the system will work.

Festivalgoers who want to purchase tickets for the 2009 event will be able to buy, or reserve them for a £50 deposit, from October 5.

Fans who have previously registered with Glastonbury do not have to do so again, while those who are currently unregistered can sign up from September 1.

Booking lines will open on October 5 at 9am (BST), and registered festivalgoers will have two options – to buy a full weekend ticket at £175 (plus £5 booking fee) or to reserve a ticket at £50 each.

The remaining balance must be paid by February 1, 2009.

In addition, registered ticket-buyers will be able to buy up to six tickets for registered friends and family in a single transaction.

Glastonbury 2009 takes place at Worthy Farm, Somerset, between June 26 and 28.
