Any fears that the Glastonbury Festival is on the ropes were put to rest last week when they applied for a license to operate the festival for the next four years. It will be put to the approval test by the Mendip District Council in Somerset, who will decide by March 26th, just before Glastonbury tickets go on sale April 1st.
Anyone interested in buying a ticket has to register with the festival via their web site or through the mail and provide a photo of themselves, in an attempt to cut down on ticket reselling. Registration ends on February 28th. The festival will eventually sell 140,000 tickets.
Although Glastonbury has said that no acts will be announced until after tickets go on sale, a recent BBC interview with Micheal Eavis revealed that Smokey Robinson is set to confirm an appearance at Glastonbury in 2007.
A note on their web site says"Anything you read about confirmed performances at Glastonbury 2007 is speculation and rumour. No announcement about the line up will be made by the Festival before tickets go on sale."
