Glastonbury Festival have issued a warning about “bogus” ticket sellers and touts as fans ready themselves for the upcoming 2024 re-sale.

In a fresh statement shared to social media over the weekend, Glastonbury bosses warned buyers to not fall victim to scams and reminding all potential buyers that tickets for this year’s event are sold out.

Instead, any cancellations for this year’s festival will be available in the official re-sale this spring. A date is yet to be confirmed for it.

“Please do not risk falling victim to touts, bogus operators or fake promotions / contests,” a post read.

“If you have doubts about any company offering tickets, accommodation or competitions to access Glastonbury Festival please contact the Festival office.

“Tickets for this year’s Festival are sold out. Any cancellations will be made available via official resales in the Spring.”

In addition, they stressed that “some of the Festival’s official partners may run officially endorsed competitions in the coming months” but as of yesterday, “there are currently NO legitimate ticket contests running for Glastonbury 2024”.

As has been the case for over a decade, successful tickets buyers were required to pre-register with official photo ID, which was initially introduced to cut down on ticket touts. Each attendee’s ticket comes with a photo of their face printed on it.

An exact date for the 2024 re-sale is yet to be announced, but it usually takes place in the spring of each year.

The line-up for this year’s festival is yet to be confirmed, but the likes of Madonna, Coldplay and Dua Lipa are among those who have been linked with an appearance on Worthy Farm.

In other Glastonbury news, founder Michael Eavis was recently bestowed with a knighthood.
