By: Spacelab Research Staff
The Glastonbury festival has announced its ticket registration details for it's 2008 festival. Anyone headed to the festival this year will have to go through the registration that begins on February 1st and ends on February 29th.
Contact details and a passport photo must be submitted during in order to buy Glastonbury tickets later on April 6th. The ticket registration started in 2007 as a way to prevent ticket resellers from being able to buy tickets and sell them for profit, called touting in the U.K.
"The 2008 registration process is very similar to last year’s award winning system, which involved supplying your contact details and a passport standard photo. Everyone, including children aged 13 and over, who wants to buy tickets will need to register first to be eligible to go through the sales procedure on 6th April. Each ticket sold will feature a photograph of the person in whose name it is registered and will be non-transferable, so if you plan to buy tickets for friends or family, make sure they all register," said an announcement from festival organizer Michael Eavis on Glastonbury web site.
The Glastonbury festival has been around for 35 years, and shortly after its beginning, it became a haven for hippies that were coming from celebrating the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge. Later they built a giant pyramid that served as a cowshed and animal food store when the festival was not going on. Learn more at the festival overview.
