Glastonbury gears up for 2008 festival

Ticket details for this year's event are announced

Ticket details for this year’s Glastonbury festival have been announced by the organisers.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on April 6 – as in recent years this is a Sunday.

In an identical move to last year, applicants will have to register their photo and contact details at or by filling in a photo registration which will be made available at camping store chain Millets.

Each registrant will be issued with a unique identification number which will correspond to their photo.

The photos will then be printed on each personalised ticket.

Full details will become available via the festival’s website in the middle of January.

The Glastonbury festival will take place from June 27-29 at Worthy Farm in Pilton.

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.
