So, how do you make sure you won’t be disappointed in 2023? Even though next year’s festival is yet to be confirmed, there are a number of measures you can take to make sure you can get your hands on some tickets.

Get your glitter ready...
Will Glastonbury 2023 happen?
Glastonbury 2023 is slated to happen.
The festival has a fallow year every five years in order to prevent any damage to the site.
The most recent break was 2018, but due to the two cancellations due to the pandemic, the next fallow year isn’t expected until 2027.
Therefore, fear not, party people! Yes, Glasto 2023 is definitely on the cards.
How can I register for tickets for Glastonbury 2023?
In order to get tickets for Glastonbury 2023, you will have to register beforehand in order to qualify.
To do this, you need to upload a picture of yourself to the official Glastonbury website.
Pictures are required in order to prevent touting, as Glastonbury strictly prevents independent ticket sales or touts, and if someone is caught re-selling their ticket, their order will be cancelled.
Glastonbury organisers recommend registering weeks in advance of ticket sales opening, as registration usually closes for weeks around each ticket sale.
People may have to re-submit the registration for a number of reasons, so registering in advance will ensure they have enough time before registration closes.
How can I get tickets for Glastonbury 2023?
In order to get a ticket for Glastonbury 2023, you need to register with your photograph.
The next step in the process is that anyone age 13 or over who intends to buy a ticket must have their own valid registration number, and if they want to buy tickets for a group of people, the whole group needs to be registered.
Registration can be done at any time in the run-up to the day that the tickets go on sale.
When do tickets for Glastonbury 2023 go on sale?
The exact date that Glastonbury 2023 tickets will go on sale hasn’t been announced. However, the first round of tickets usually go on sale in October.
This year, the resale happened in March, offering those without admission the opportunity to grab some tickets.
It’s notoriously difficult to clinch tickets for Glastonbury on the day that they go on sale, so, one tip is to log on to the site with multiple different devices in order to keep refreshing.
In 2019, Somerset residents had the chance to grab tickets before the rest of the country, paying a deposit of £50 to secure them.
