There is one final chance for Glastonbury fans to buy tickets for this year's festival as two resales take place this week. The legendary festival returns to Worthy Farm on June 26, with Glastonbury Festival veterans Coldplay, and first-timers Dua Lipa and American singer Sza, set to headline the Pyramid Stage at this year's festival.

Country singer Shania Twain will take the Sunday afternoon legends slot. Tickets first went on sale in November 2023 and sold out within minutes. Festival-goers had to pay a £75 deposit at the time, before settling their balance during the first week of April.

However, those who didn't pay their ticket balance by the deadline have now lost their ticket. It's good news for anyone who missed out the first time around as those unsold tickets will go back on sale this week, giving fans one last chance to snap one up.

When will Glastonbury 2024 take place?

The legendary festival returns to Worthy Farm in Pilton on Wednesday, June 26, with hundreds of thousands of music lovers descending on the Somerset site for the five-day bash through to Sunday June 30, 2024.

How much are tickets for Glastonbury Festival?

Tickets for the 2024 event are £355 plus a £5 booking fee for a standard ticket. You will also have to pay for secure delivery of a general admission ticket at £9.95 per order.

Any tickets purchased in the resale have to be paid for in full.

This year's ticket price has increased by £20 from last year’s event. The festival cost £335 plus a £5 booking fee in 2023, which was up £55 from the 2022 price of £285.

How can I get tickets in the re-sale?

Despite two waves of ticket sales, there are still some tickets up for grabs in a re-sale at 9am on Sunday (April 21). The tickets available in the re-sale are tickets that were previously purchased but the ticketholder failed to pay their balance in full by the cut-off date in early April.

As a result, these tickets are now back up for sale. It is unknown how many tickets will be available. You can buy them through Seetickets through this link.

Any cancelled accommodation options at Worthy View, Sticklinch as well as Campervan/Caravan passes will then go on sale at 11am on Sunday.

Anyone who wants to buy these re-sale tickets must have registered by Friday, April 12. A message on Glastonbury Festival's website reads: "If you are not registered, we advise registering by Friday, April 12 to allow for the registration to be processed and resubmitted if needed.

"If you are already registered you can use your existing registration number and do not need to re-register. We advise you check your details online prior to registration closing, in case you need to provide any new details.

"Registration closes at 5pm BST on Wednesday, April 17, and will not reopen until after the resale."

Ticket and coach travel packages are limited to two per transaction, and general admission tickets are limited to four. A registration number will be required for each ticket you are booking. Visit here for more information.

How much are coach packages?

If you are buying a coach ticket on Thursday evening, you have to pay the price of your coach travel on top of the price of your festival ticket. There are one-way or return travel options and you can choose between a departure day of Wednesday or Thursday from one of several major cities including Manchester, London or Bristol.

Return coach tickets range from £44 (Bristol) to £151 (Edinburgh). One-way tickets are available from five destinations - Bath (£24), Bristol (£24), London (£40), Reading (£35) and Taunton (£29). You can find the full list of prices on the Glastonbury website here.

Festival-goers who have booked a coach package will not receive their festival ticket until they are on the coach. That means there is no ticket delivery fee, but you will have to pay a £2.75 e-Ticket fee per order for your coach ticket.

How much are car park and campervan passes?

If you want to drive to the festival you will need to purchase a car parking pass so you can park your vehicle on site. A car parking pass costs £55 and can be purchased when you book your ticket.

If you want to bring a campervan or a caravan you need a different pass that lets you pitch up in the designated campervan areas. Campervan tickets for 2024 cost £200 for a standard pitch or £300 for a large pitch.

Passes are only available to general admission ticket holders, not people on coach packages.

How much are tipis?

For people who don't want to camp, Glastonbury has an area of pre-erected tipis that can be hired for the weekend. The festival's Tipi Village offers pre-erected 18-foot tents that can accommodate up to six adults.

A tipi for Glastonbury Festival 2024 costs £1,750 to hire for the weekend - and that does not include the cost of your festival ticket. A resale for tipi hire will take place at 11am on Sunday, April 21.
