Festival-goers reported that the website SeeTickets, the only valid source for purchase, crashed as thousands tried to book their place.

By selling out in 22 minutes, the festival saw the fastest time for the first part of the booking process since 2017. Coach tickets were snapped up in 29 minutes in 2018 and 27 minutes in 2019.

Recently, Glastonbury Festival announced that its 2023 ticket prices would cost £340 amid the cost-of-living crisis, up from £265 (plus a £5 booking fee) when they last went on sale in 2019.

The price hike comes at a time when businesses are struggling with soaring inflation and energy costs, leading many to increase their prices.

And while next year’s festival is set to be more expensive, it is sure to be just as popular. So, how do you make sure you’re at Worthy Farm next summer?

Here’s everything you need to know to make sure you don’t miss out!

When is Glastonbury 2023?

Glastonbury 2023 will return to Worthy Farm from June 21 to June 25.

The festival has a fallow year every five years in order to prevent any damage to the site.

The most recent break was in 2018 but, because of the two cancellations due to the pandemic, the next fallow year isn’t expected until 2027.

How can I get tickets for Glastonbury 2023?

The first step was to register with your photograph. However, that stage has now expired, and you will have to wait for resale tickets, which are usually available in March.
