Glastonbury 2024 Coach Tickets Sell Out in Just 18 Minutes

Glastonbury Festival 2024 coach resale tickets sold out in a mere 18 minutes on Thursday, April 18, leaving many fans disappointed. The coach packages, which include a festival ticket and coach travel, were made available to those who had pre-registered for tickets. More than 300 coaches will be running at this year's event, set to take place from June 26 to June 30, 2024 at Worthy Farm in Somerset.

Tickets for the 2024 festival cost £355 per person plus a £5 booking fee, up from £335 for the 2023 event. The number of tickets available for the resales depended on the amount of people who did not pay the full price for their ticket after paying the deposit in November. Emily Eavis, festival organizer, announced that Glastonbury had its highest ever percentage of ticket balances paid, with the deadline closing on April 7.

Those who missed out on the coach ticket sale can try again during the general admission resale on Sunday, April 21 at 9am BST. The general admission resale is only available to those who have pre-registered, and registration for the sale has already closed. Any leftover accommodation options will also be available on Sunday at 11am, but only for those who already have a general admission ticket.

The upcoming festival will feature two female headliners, Dua Lipa and SZA, with Coldplay as the third act topping the bill. Shania Twain will play the coveted 'legend slot' on Sunday afternoon. Other notable acts performing include LCD Soundsystem, Little Simz, Burna Boy, Lulu, Frank Turner, Kate Nash, Avril Lavigne, and Keane.

Why this matters: Glastonbury Festival is one of the world's most iconic and highly anticipated music events, attracting top artists and hundreds of thousands of fans from around the globe. The rapid sellout of tickets highlights the immense popularity and cultural significance of the festival.

Glastonbury bosses say there will be a very limited number of tickets available in the resales, and once all orders are processed, the website will display a 'SOLD OUT' message. Festival organizers urge fans to purchase tickets only through official channels to avoid being scammed. "We would like to remind everyone that there will only be a limited number of tickets available to purchase over both resale days," a statement on the Glastonbury website reads.
