The first wave of Glastonbury 2023 tickets sold out in 22 minutes on Thursday (November 3), despite the cost of individual tickets rising to more than £300 for the first time.
With the line-up still to be confirmed, festival-goers had their first chance to acquire a type of ticket that covers coach travel as well as access to the weekend’s entertainment.

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.
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?
