Glastonbury has only just ended for 2016, but already festival-goers are thinking about the 2017 event to cure their post-festival blues.

Despite the mud, this year was another vintage one for Glastonbury, with Muse, Adele and Coldplay all wowing the crowds with their headline sets on the Pyramid Stage, and speculation has already begun as to who will follow in their footsteps. 

While we face a bit of a long wait to find out who will top the bill, fans will still be desperate to ensure they are down on Worthy Farm to witness it all, but there are a few things you need to know about how to get a ticket first...

When is Glastonbury 2017?

Next year's festival takes place from Wednesday 21 to Sunday 25 June, down on the famous Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.

When do tickets go on sale?

Glastonbury tickets usually go on sale on the first Sunday of October, so you should expect to face the annual battle for them on 2 October, but this will be confirmed nearer the time. A resale then happens in April, giving those who missed out a chance to snap up tickets other people have decided to return. However you must be registered to buy a ticket in either the general sale or resale.

So, where do I register?

Go to the official website at glastonburyregistration.co.uk, where you will be asked to upload a 300px by 300px passport-style photo, along with your name, address, email address and phone number. Those who have registered in previous years may not need to do so again, but be advised that if your appearance has changed dramatically, you're probably best to upload a new picture to save yourselves any problems on arrival on site, as your photo will be printed on your ticket. Any registrations submitted prior to 2010 have been deleted in order to maintain the quality of photographs on tickets.

How much will a ticket set me back?

The price of a ticket for this year's festival was £228 plus a £5 booking fee, but prices usually increase year-on-year. As well as access to the multiple stages and entertainment areas, each ticket includes five nights camping on site. You will usually have to pay a £50 deposit to secure your ticket, with the balance due in April. If you fail to pay the balance before the deadline, you will lose your ticket, and it will be sold in the resale.
