Glastonbury 2019 resale tickets to be released this week

Glastonbury Festival

Tickets for the UK’s largest festival go on sale this week.

It’s notoriously difficult to get your hands on Glastonbury tickets. The initial sale for Glastonbury 2019 was held in October, and over 100,000 tickets were sold in 36 minutes. However, for those who didn’t manage to bag a pass – there’s still hope. Returned tickets will be released in the resale this week. Coach packages go on sale tonight (25 April) at 6pm (GMT), and general sale tickets will be released on Sunday (28 April) at 9am (GMT).

See Tickets is the festival’s official reseller, and the resale will take place here. Two tickets can be bought per person for coach packages, while up to four tickets can be bought per transaction for general sale passes. Each ticket will require a registration number and postcode. Registration has now closed.

Tickets will be harder to buy in the resale, with festival co-organiser Emily Eavis saying on BBC Radio 2 this week that they “haven’t got loads to sell”. She added, “I think we should probably let people know that now, but it’s always really worth a go. We don’t want to put people off.”

After taking a fallow year in 2018, Glastonbury returns to Somerset’s Worthy Farm on 26-30 June. This year, the event will be headlined by The Killers, The Cure and Stormzy. Kylie has been confirmed for the Sunday teatime ‘Legends’ slot on the Pyramid Stage.

New constructions are set to be built for this year’s edition, with festival founder Michael Eavis previously announcing his plans to build a 60-metre pier called Glastonbury-on-sea.
