Glastonbury 2024 Resale Tickets Sell Out in 22 Minutes

Glastonbury Festival 2024 resale tickets for the June 26-30 event, headlined by Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and SZA, were released on April 21, 2024, at 9am and sold out in just 22 minutes due to high demand.

The tickets were priced at £355 per person plus a £5 booking fee, up from £335 for the 2023 festival.

A limited number of tickets were made available in the resale due to a high percentage of ticket balances being paid by the April deadline. Those who missed the balance payment lost their tickets, which were then put up for the resale. Despite technical issues at the start, the sale was extremely fast, leaving many fans disappointed. However, some lucky buyers were able to secure tickets.

Glastonbury organizers advised customers to have their registration details ready and to follow instructions closely to increase their chances. Police warned fans not to get caught out by unofficial sellers. The resale link went live on See Tickets, with fans joining a virtual queue in the thousands.

Why this matters: Glastonbury is one of the world's most iconic and popular music festivals, attracting top artists and hundreds of thousands of attendees. The quick sellout of the resale tickets highlights the event's lasting appeal and the difficulties fans encounter in securing a chance to experience the legendary festival.

The 2024 Glastonbury lineup also includes performances by LCD Soundsystem, The Streets, Little Simz, Avril Lavigne, and Cyndi Lauper. Shania Twain will take the coveted Sunday afternoon legends slot. The festival will feature the debut of the first ever dedicated South Asian stage, named Arrivals. The BBC will provide extensive coverage, broadcasting stand-out sets and behind-the-scenes moments across various platforms.

Another way to attend is by volunteering with charities like WaterAid, Oxfam, and Greenpeace, which provides free entry and meals in exchange for shifts worked during the event. However, applications for some volunteer roles are now closed. A limited amount of returned campervan tickets, Worthy View, and Sticklinch accommodation will be available to ticket holders from 11am on April 21.
