Glastonbury 2011 tickets on sale October 3
Wednesday 01 September 2010
The Glastonbury Festival, one of the biggest and best-loved camping/music festivals in the world, has its 2011 edition slated for June 22 through 26. Organizers announced September 1 that tickets for the 2011 event are set to go on sale October 3.
Tickets for England's Glastonbury Festival are known to sell out well in advance, and the 2011 edition is likely to be especially hot: It will be the last festival until 2013, as the festival is expected to skip a year in 2012 to avoid conflict with the London Olympic Games.
While a full lineup will likely not be out until early spring, Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis has said he has "three really good" headliners, also mentioning that he hoped to book U2 for a future festival ("whether it's next year...or in three years' time") after the rock band was forced to pull out in 2010.
Tickets for 2011 will go on sale at 9:00am London time on Sunday, October 3, costing £195 (€235) for a weekend pass. At the time of booking, buyers will have only the option of paying a £50 (€60) deposit per person, to be paid in full the first week in April for UK residents and from February 25 through March 3 for international buyers.
