Details of Glastonbury 2008 registration released

Festivalgoers will have to register their interest next month

Festivalgoers hoping for a ticket to Glastonbury Festival this year will have to register their interest next month (February) if they are to succeed in getting one, organiser Michael Eavis revealed today (January 8).

The 2008 registration will be similar to last year’s system, which involved supplying contact details and a photo in a bid to combat ticket touting.

Speaking of the plan, Eavis said “I want to keep up the momentum we gathered last year by stopping ticket touting altogether.”


“Thank you for being so supportive of our registration process, which is, after all, quite tedious. I appreciate it so much,” he added.

The Shockwaves NME Awards 2008 are coming soon – and it’s time to have your say. Vote now by heading to NME.COM/awardsvote and you could win VIP tickets to the ceremony, which takes place in London on February 28.
