Those hoping to snap up the first round of Glastonbury Festival tickets were left furious after organizers postponed ticket sales just four hours after they began.
The much-anticipated sale was postponed “out of fairness” to people who missed Monday’s new registration deadline.
A statement on Twitter said: “This year’s ticket sales for Glastonbury have been postponed by two weeks. This is to ensure that anyone wishing to purchase a ticket is registered and therefore eligible to purchase one.”
Coach tour tickets go on sale now on Thursday, November 16th at 6:00 p.m., while general admission begins on Sunday, November 19th at 9:00 a.m.
The statement continued: “Following this year’s festival, we have made everyone with a pre-2020 registration aware of a planned review of the details held by See Tickets in the Glastonbury Festival registration database.” This is to ensure that the details we hold Data is current and we do not store people’s data for longer than necessary. These registrants have been asked to take action to confirm their registration if they wish to retain it.
“As always, registration was closed on Monday (October 30) before tickets went on sale. Unfortunately, it has emerged that some people who wanted to buy tickets for 2024 discovered after the registration deadline on Monday that they were no longer registered, even though they thought they were.
“In fairness to these individuals, we will reopen the window for registration at 12pm on Monday, November 6th. It will remain open until Monday, November 13, 5 p.m. We urge anyone wishing to purchase a ticket for Glastonbury 2024 to either review their existing registration now or submit a new registration, which will remain free from 12pm on Monday (link in bio).
“We apologize for the late change to ticket sales dates, but we want to ensure that anyone wishing to purchase a ticket for next year’s festival can confirm their registration before they go on sale.”
