Glastonbury Festival has postponed the scheduled ticket sales for the 2o24 edition just hours before the first batch were set to go on sale.

Coach and tickets were set to go on sale at 6PM this evening (November 2) ahead of a general sale at 9AM GMT on Sunday (November 5).

Now, organisers have confirmed that both sales have been delayed by a fortnight. Coach and ticket packages will now go on sale at 6pm GMT on Thursday, November 16, while the general sale follows at 9am GMT on Sunday, November 19.

“This is to ensure that everyone who would like to buy a ticket is registered and therefore eligible to purchase one,” Glastonbury said.

“Following this year’s Festival, we alerted everyone with a registration which pre-dated 2020 of a scheduled review of the details held by See Tickets in the Glastonbury Festival registration database. This was in order to ensure that the details we hold are current and that we do not store individuals’ information for any longer than is necessary.

“These registrants were asked to take action to confirm their registration if they wished to keep it. As always, registration was then closed on Monday (30th October) ahead of the ticket sale.”

The statement continued: “Unfortunately, it has come to light that some individuals hoping to buy tickets for 2024 have discovered after Monday’s registration deadline that they are no longer registered, despite believing they were.

“Out of fairness to those individuals, we will be re-opening the window for registration at 12 noon on Monday, 6th November. It will remain open until 5pm on Monday, 13th November.”

They added: “We urge everyone hoping to buy a ticket to Glastonbury 2024 to either check their existing registration [at] now or submit new registration, which remains free of charge, at, from 12 noon on Monday.

“We apologise for the late change to the ticket sale dates, but we want to ensure that everyone who would like to buy a ticket for next year’s Festival is able to confirm their registration ahead of the sale.”

Last week, organiser Emily Eavis confirmed that Glastonbury‘s legends slot artist for 2024 will be female and provided an update on next year’s headliners.

Earlier this year, Eavis said that the festival have booked one of two female headliners for 2024, and that both of these would be first-timers at the Somerset festival.

Now, Eavis has spoken to Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw on their new podcast Sidetracked and revealed that the line-up has recently changed.

“2024 is still a little up in the air…” the organiser said. “And I thought it was kind of taking shape and then last week I just got a call, and this is what happens if you wait a little longer, because quite often we’ll be booked up from July. This year we’re holding out for a little bit longer and last week I got a call from a really big American artist saying this person’s around next year, and I was like oh my God, this is incredible, thank God we held the slot.”

Responding to critics of 2023’s gender balance at the festival, she added: “I’ve always been really passionate about gender split (on festival line ups) and I think actually, our problem was that I’d been so outspoken about it that having a year where there wasn’t a female sent people a bit mad, or some people. And actually we did have a female, she pulled out and we replaced them with Guns (N’ Roses) on the Saturday…

“But everyone who knows, knows that it’s top of my list. I’m always trying to make it the most balanced, diverse bill. It is difficult with female artists because there aren’t enough headliners. But we’re also creating them.”
