The 2011 Glastonbury Festival has put tickets on sale as of October 3rd, giving festival-goers their first chance at getting access to the mammoth Glastonbury festival. Tickets go on sale at 9:00 am.
Tickets are available for £195, which is £10 more than last year. Add the booking fee and postage and you're at £200. Glastonbury organizers are allowing 8 tickets per transaction.
They're using the usual Glastonbury Festival ticket buying registration scheme to prevent ticket resellers from buying big blocks of tickets. The scheme lets buyers put down a deposit of £50, with the full balance due in Spring of 2011. If you haven't registered for Glastonbury tickets yet, registration opens again on Monday, October, 4.
There's already talk about the 2011 Glastonbury headliners, which includes the rampant U2 speculation and announcement of an American headliner. "There's an American artist that I've been wanting for years and yonks, and yonks and yonks, but I really can't tell you who it is... I'm so thrilled about it. Sunday night headliner," said Glastonbury Festival organizer Michael Eavis when speaking to Heart West Country Radio.
The 2011 Glastonbury Festival is set for Wednesday June 22nd through Sunday the 26th for 2011. Fatboy Slim has already mentioned that he's in.
