Glastonbury announces ticket price for 2024 - a rise of £75 in two years

Glastonbury 2024 will cost £360, organisers have said, meaning the cost of the festival has risen £75 in two years.

Announcing a £20 increase from this year's price, co-organiser Emily Eavis said tickets will go on sale in November.

Ms Eavis said on Instagram: "Here we go! All ticket information is now on our website. We have the coach sale on Thursday, 2nd November and the general admission sale on Sunday, November 5th.

Tickets will set festival-goers back £355 plus a £5 booking fee for standard tickets, with £75 as a deposit and the balance due by the first week of April.

Coach and ticket packages will be available to buy on 2 November and standard tickets three days later.

Anyone taking the coach package option will face an additional charge for transfer to Worthy Farm.

Last year, there was a £55 price hike to £240 from the 2022 price of £285; the festival was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It means the Somerset event is £85 more expensive than Download Festival in Donington Park, which is charging £275 for coach bookings.

Wireless Festival in Finsbury Park, north London, is priced at £259.25 (plus £3.25 booking fee) and the Isle of Wight is £209 (including a £19 booking fee).

But as by far the biggest festival in Britain, Glastonbury offers the widest range of attractions across the 900-acre venue.
