GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL organisers have announced measures to avoid a repeat of last year’s ticket fiasco.
Tickets for the 2003 festival sold out in less than a day, leaving many genuine fans ticketless as Internet touts sold tickets on at vastly inflated prices.
Yet in a posting on the official Glastonbury website, festival chief Michael Eavis pledged to do everything he could to get tickets to the right people.
Tickets go on sale at 8pm on April 1 2004 and will only available through the telephone ticketline 0870 830 2004 or through a link at the official festival site [url=]glastonburyfestivals.co.uk.
Tickets will be restricted to two per person and each transaction will be ‘vigorously monitored’ to avoid multiple sales. Additionally, all tickets will be personalised, with checks at the gate, to prevent the re-selling of tickets.
Eavis said: “The measures we are taking this year will result in a much fairer way to access the Festival, which promises to be as always, an incredibly joyful way to spend your mid-summer!”
Tickets are priced at £112 plus booking fee, postage, and packing. Glastonbury Festival takes place from June 25-27.
