Glastonbury Festival organisers have confirmed the date that fans anticipate and dread both in equal measure.

Set to return to its Worthy Farm home next June, tickets for 2019’s Glastonbury will go onsale at 9am on 7th October. Though widely expected to be the date for a while now, this is the first time confirmation has come from organisers.

As per previous years, attendees who wish to bundle coach and entry passes will have their opportunity to purchase combined packages three days prior on Thursday 4th October. Likewise, a £50 deposit will be required on the day, with full balance to paid next April. General admission tickets will cost £248 + £5 booking fee per ticket, marking a £10 increase over 2017’s festival.

Over the past 10 days, Glastonbury organisers have been reminding previous ticket-holders to update their photograph alongside their registration details. In an email alert, they have said “Before ticket information for the 2019 Festival is released, we’re asking everyone with a registration photograph over two years old to update their registration photo, as digital photo technology has improved considerably since we first introduced registration for Glastonbury tickets in 2007.” You can update your details here.

Glastonbury 2019 will run from 26 Jun 2019 – 30 June.
