The organizers said that standard tickets for the 2024 Glastonbury Festival, held at Worthy Farm in Somerset, sold out in less than an hour after the second batch of £360 tickets became available on Saturday morning at 9 am. In a post at 9:57 am on Saturday, the organizers wrote: “Tickets for Glastonbury 2024 have now sold out.
Thank you to all those who bought one, and we are sorry for those who missed out when demand far exceeded supply that morning. There will be a resale of any canceled or returned tickets in the spring of 2024.” The sale of coach travel tickets started on November 16, and 25 minutes after going live at 6 pm, the organizers announced that the tickets were sold out.
The organizers posted on their official social media account: “Tonight, all tickets for Glastonbury 2024, including coach travel, have now sold out. Thank you to everyone who bought one.”
Due to registration-related issues, the ticket sale for the festival was pushed back by two weeks. The first batch of tickets for the 2024 festival, including coach packages, was scheduled to go on sale on November 2 at 6 pm, while the general admission tickets were expected to be available from the morning of November 5.
In an attempt to prevent scalping, fans had to register in advance to purchase tickets for the globally renowned event.
A few hours before the sale of tickets, the organizers stated that some fans claimed they were not informed that their registration had expired, and due to “fairness,” a delay in the sale was happening for them.
Earlier this month, Emily Eavis, the co-organizer of Glastonbury, stated that rumors about Madonna, Dua Lipa, and Coldplay headlining the festival next year were false.
The rumors started when Emily Eavis, the daughter of Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, said during Sunday tea that a “legend” slot would be given to a female artist. She told Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw’s Side Tracks podcast that a “really big” American female singer’s team had contacted them saying she was available, hinting that it was Madonna.
Last year, the lineup for the headliners included Arctic Monkeys, Guns N’ Roses, and Sir Elton John, all of whom were male.
The festival for the next year is scheduled for June 26-30.
