Glastonbury Festival will take place between Wednesday 26 and Sunday 30 June 2024.

The festival takes a break – also known as a fallow year – once every five years to allow Worthy Farm's fields time to recover.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival took an extended break after 2019's event, missing 2020 and 2021's editions but returning in 2022.

It's set to go ahead next year – and for a few years after that, too, before another break.

A limited number of extra tickets will go on sale next spring.

If you want a 2024 Glastonbury ticket, you need to get organised.

Competition for tickets is fierce each year and to add to the difficulty, you will to have already pre-registered on the official Glastonbury website. Registrations will re-open on 12 noon on Monday, 6 November and close at 5pm on Monday, 13th November.

Everyone over the age of 13 will also get a registration number that needs to be used to buy tickets, so if you're buying for a group, you'll need everyone's registration number.

Registrations must include a picture of yourself at the correct size with the correct background.

This is to guard against selling on and touts, as your photo will be featured on your ticket if you're lucky enough to get one.

Those who have registered in previous years and since 2010 should already have a valid registration number, although registrations from before 2010 have been deleted and you'll also need to ensure your photo still looks like you.

Once tickets go on sale, you'll need to get in quick to secure them, so make sure you're ready and waiting on more than one device for the sale to open to give yourself the best chance of buying tickets.

The balance then has to be paid by the first week in March.

Most people will need to buy a weekend camping ticket for the festival, although there are some local and Sunday-only tickets available for those living near the site.

In previous years, people living nearby have had the chance to buy tickets before the general public by paying a deposit.

There are a number of camping options available, from the main campsite areas which are included in the price of a weekend ticket, to bringing a campervan, hiring one of the on-site tipis or booking the off-site camping area Worthy View.

If you're bringing children, those 12 and under don't need a ticket and won't need to register.
