Glastonbury tickets go on sale
Tickets for next year's Glastonbury music festival go on sale today.
People who registered with organisers by Friday can buy a ticket from 9am. Next year is the 40th anniversary of the event, which is held at Worth Farm in Somerset.
This year's festival attracted 137,000 music fans and featured acts like Blur, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen. It was hailed as one of the best by festival-goers and organisers alike.
Co-organiser Michael Eavis said of the 2010 event: "The expectations are really high. "We're trying to get the best headliners in the world." It takes place between June 23 and June 27.
Full weekend tickets cost £185 - up £10 from last year - plus a £5 booking fee. The registration system, which does not guarantee a ticket, was introduced in 2007 to combat touting. Last year fans were able to extend their registration for three years.
Anyone unsure whether their previous registration is still valid can check online.
