Glastonbury tickets 2023 - live updates: Coaches sold out in 22 minutes

Glastonbury fans are preparing for the second set of tickets for the 2023 festival to go on sale.

The music festival returns to Worthy Farm next summer from Wednesday 21 June to Sunday 25 June.

The first round of tickets, which included coach travel, went at 6pm on Thursday (3 November). They sold out in 22 minutes, with many prospective punters reporting that the website didn’t load for them at all.

The remaining Glastonbury tickets will be released on Sunday 6 November at 9am. You must already have registered for tickets to be able to purchase them.

Only tickets bought via SeeTickets will be valid at the festival.

Glastonbury is known for being one of the toughest festivals to get tickets for, with tickets expected to sell out in less than an hour once again.

Buying a Glasto ticket can feel a bit risky – after all, you’re splashing the cash without knowing who’ll be playing (although you can guarantee there’ll be something for everyone).

Reports today have suggested that Rihanna could be returning for the festival, but we’ll have to wait and see!

How much do Glastonbury 2023 tickets cost?

12:15 , Isobel Lewis

Glastonbury 2023 will be the most expensive yet, with tickets costing an eye-watering £335 plus a £5 booking fee.

The last time Glastonbury tickets went on general sale was in 2019, when a standard ticket cost £265 plus a £5 booking fee.

Emily Eavis has explained why prices have risen so much, but it still makes Glastonbury one very expensive festival.

At least the good people on Twitter have seen the funny side...

Anyone else still reeling from yesterday? All Glastonbury coach packages (tickets plus coach travel) went on sale at 6pm and sold out within 22 minutes, leaving plenty of hopefuls feeling rather disappointed.

Coach tickets sold out in less than 30 minutes this year – 22 minutes, to be precise!

The last time coach tickets went that quickly was for the 2017 festival! In 2019, they sold out in 29 minutes and in 2020, they went in 27 minutes.

Here’s hoping that, with more tickets up for grabs on Sunday, they stick around a little longer...

Glastonbury hopefuls unable to open website as tickets go on sale

Thursday 3 November 2022 18:06 , Isobel Lewis

Tickets may be on sale, but it appears most people can’t get onto the SeeTickets website at all!

Some people, however, are reporting that they’ve been able to join the queue.

Thursday 3 November 2022 18:02 , Isobel Lewis

Remember, today you will only be able to buy tickets with coach travel!

Those lucky enough to get through will have to pay £50 of the £335 ticket price plus the cost of their coach ticket.

Each person who gets through can purchase up to six tickets, as long as they have the registration numbers and postcodes to hand. However, all their group must be travelling from the same location.

In 2021, capacity for Glastonbury Festival was 210,000.
