Glastonbury Festival 2014 ticket details revealed
Festival-goers will be able to buy coach and ticket packages early
It might seem like just last week that the Rolling Stones were strutting their stuff on the Pyramid stage, but details of next year's Glastonbury have just been announced.
Tickets for the 2014 festival, taking place on the 25-29 June, will go on sale on Sunday 6 October priced at £210 plus a £5 booking fee. But festival-goers will only need to pay a £50 deposit before settling their bill in April.
For the first time, coach packages will be available three days before the main ticket sale.
Inclusive coach and ticket packages will go on sale at 6pm on Thursday 3 October. The festival organisers say they aims to “reward green travellers with the chance to be the first to secure their Glastonbury 2014 tickets”.
No acts have been announced yet but founder Michael Eavis says the three headliners are in place already.
The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys and Mumford and Sons headlined the event at Worthy Farm, Somerset in June..
Eavis told the BBC it would be “hard to beat” the 2013 line-up and said next year's headliners probably wouldn't surprise people.
“There aren't many left [to play here],” he said. “It's the process of elimination isn't it?
“The Stones were absolutely brilliant, all the other stuff we’re doing in the southeast corner was absolutely fantastic.
“[It’s] downhill all the way now. I’ve had 44 years of an incredible career and we’re still milking the cows as well.”
Festival-goers will have to register on the Glastonbury website before buying tickets and will be able to buy a maximum of six each.
