Glastonbury festival ticket registration – all you need to know

How to get in the running for Glastonbury tickets now

Fans wanting tickets for this year’s Glastonbury Festival need to register for tickets between today (February 1) and March 14.

To register, you need to head to the Glastonbury Festival registration homepage and submit your details.

On this page you will need to upload a passport-style photograph of your face. This will be printed on your ticket, should you succeed in buying one, and will be used by security staff to identify you when you enter the festival as a measure to stamp out ticket touting.

Fans can also register for tickets by picking up a form in UK branches of Millets, and by requesting a form by mail from festival organisers.

See the Glastonbury Festival registration information page for details.

Fans outside of the UK must register online.

Around 400,000 people registered for Glastonbury tickets last year, with 145,000 tickets available. Only fans who register before March 14 will be eligible to buy Glastonbury tickets when they go on sale on April 6.

Those who register for tickets will then be eligible to buy tickets from 9am on April 6 from the Glastonbury website or by phoning 0800 0792008 (0044 1159934183 outside of the UK). Tickets are likely to sell out within a few hours on the day. NME.COM will bring you the latest ticket news in the build-up to them going on sale.

See the Glastonbury Festival registration information page for more information.

Traditionally, fans have had a far greater success rate by attempting to buy tickets online rather than by phone.

Good luck!
