It's not going to be easy.

June 2017 may be months away but for anyone hoping to go to Glastonbury, now is the time to act and buy tickets.

On Thursday (6 October) evening, coach and ticket packages went on sale, and it took just 26 minutes for them to be snapped up by eager fans.

Can we go now please? 

This Sunday (9 October) at 9am, the remaining tickets will be available - but you’re going to need to be seriously quick, and there a few ways to give yourself a headstart.

Check out our handy guide to getting tickets below…

1.Check you’re registered

You can’t buy a Glastonbury ticket unless you’ve pre-registered and sent them a lovely passport photo first. If you’re not sure whether you’re all signed up, check here.

2.Get organised

In order to get your hands on tickets, you’ll need the registration number and postcode for each person who wants one. You can book a maximum of six tickets per order, and will need to pay the £50 deposit money for each of them straight away, in one transaction. The rest of the ticket price is then payable in April.

When it comes to the big moment, make sure all of the registration info, and your payment details, are to hand.

3. Set plenty of alarms

We’re not trying to run your lives, but it’s perhaps time to rethink those Saturday evening pub plans and get some shut eye ahead of that 8.30AM wake-up call.

4.Cross your fingers

Not literally, of course, that really won’t help things, but all you can do from here is become best friends with your laptop’s refresh button and hope for the best. This is the website you’ll need to buy tickets, so be ready at around 8:55AM, and give it your all when 9am arrives. 

5. If you’re not successful, there’s still April

Anyone who nabs a ticket this week will need to pay off the rest of the money by early Spring. Those who don’t will lose their ticket, and these will all be offered out again in the April resale.

Best of luck!
