Glastonbury ticket registration 2008: four days to go

Fans must sign up by Friday (Mar 14) to be eligible for tickets

Fans have just four days to register so they can stand a chance of getting tickets for this year’s Glastonbury festival.

Registration – which is required so the event can use a series of anti-touting measures including putting photo IDs on tickets – closes on Friday (March 14).

Anyone who wants to buy tickets when they go on sale on April 6 must have registered before Friday.


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.

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.

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.


This year’s festival is being headlined by Kings Of Leon, Jay-Z and The Verve and takes place between June 27 and 29.
