After a frenzied rush for coach tickets earlier this week, general admission passes for Glastonbury Festival 2024 went on sale at 9am GMT this morning.
Organisers have urged anyone hoping to buy a ticket to check their existing registration immediately or submit a new registration.
Considering that coach tickets sold out in 25 minutes on Thursday (16 November), we’ve compiled a handy list of tips and tricks to maximise your chances at landing a ticket to Worthy Farm.
The sale comes as rumours swirl around potential headliners for next year’s festival at Worthy Farm. Following criticism over 2023’s all-male headliners, co-organiser Emily Eavis has hinted that two female acts could top the Pyramid Stage next year, with another booked for the Legends slot.
Ticket sales were delayed by two weeks this year “out of fairness” to customers who didn’t realise their registrations had expired.
A statement was posted to the Glastonbury website just hours before the tickets were originally due to go on sale on Thursday 2 November announcing that the sale date had been postponed.

How to get Glastonbury Festival 2024 tickets today
Hello, and welcome back to our liveblog for the Glastonbury 2024 ticket sale!
After the hiccup with registration earlier this month, things should hopefully run smoothly this evening as coach tickets go on sale at 6pm.
Ahead of time, here are some top tips for getting tickets to Glastonbury Festival 2024
• A good internet connection. The last thing you need is your broadband failing at the precise moment the transaction is going through.
• The time. You need to be on the tickets page on the Glastonbury website at precisely 6pm on 2 November, or 9am on 5 November for general sale. So set your alarms!
• Money at the ready. Make sure your correct bank details, including the right billing address, and know the answers to any additional security questions you might be asked by your card issuer (this is likely if you’re buying multiple tickets). Accept the terms and conditions and make sure you complete the check out within the allocated time slot.
• It’s not over until the SOLD OUT sign appears on the Glastonbury website. So don’t freak out if you see a message notifying fans that “all available tickets have now been allocated”. That means the orders are being processed, but at least a few people end up running out of time... meaning the tickets are up for grabs again.
• Avoid multiple tabs. As stated on the Glastonbury website, trying to buy tickets on multiple tabs could actually put you at risk of confusing the ticket sales process and result in a failed transaction. “We strongly advise that you use just one browser tab when trying to book tickets, in order to avoid possible problems with your transaction,” Glastonbury says.
