Tickets for Glastonbury 2011 go on sale this Sunday

Posted: 1st October 2010

Don't forget that tickets for the biggest gathering of the festival calendar go on sale this Sunday 3rd October at 9am.

This year, the weekend will set you back £195, however there is an instalment system available to those who buy online. Firstly, you will have had to register at the official website at and obtain a registration number before purchasing online (you'll also need your postcode to hand when you do).

Thing is, you should have registered by now [don't say we didn't warn you! - Ed] - the opportunity has now passed until after the weekend and IF there are any tickets still left to purchase, you may have the chance to register and then purchase. Again, check the Glasto website ( for the full S.P.

Initially you will pay a £50 deposit ONLY, not the full price - the balance of £145 will then be settled by you in April 2011 (you will have from 1st to 7th to pay this balance plus any extra camper-van, tipi or parking tickets). If you've ticked all the boxes, then head over to from 9AM on Sunday 3rd October to pay your deposit - be prepared to wait - it will be a road-block!

Last year tickets sold out in around 12 hours and Michael Eavis has promised to announce the first headliners as soon as tickets have sold through (well, certainly within the first week). Will this be the year that U2 finally rock up? Will they ask Gorillaz back? How can you top Stevie Wonder? Will Macca play? All will be revealed...

Update: Sunday 3rd Oct, 2PM: sold-out!

Glastonbury 2011 is now officially sold-out. If you missed out, you'll get another (small) bite at the cherry next year when the returns come through.
