Glastonbury tickets onsale

Second chance to snap up festival places

Up to 20,000 tickets have gone onsale this morning for this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The tickets come from those that were returned, or where payments were declined, from the initial onsale day on April 1. Then, 137,000 tickets were snapped up in less that two hours.

Today’s sale is available only through a telephone ticketline and tickets are only open for those who pre-registered for places before the initial sale date. In a bid to beat touts, organisers insisted that all those registering for tickets supplied photo IDs. Over 400,000 fans applied to be able to get tickets for the Worthy Farm event.

Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, The Who, Kaiser Chiefs, The Kooks and Shirley Bassey will appear at the festival, which runs from 22-24 June.
