The Stranglers (crowd)

A unique feast of music set on a huge site offering a grand scale of entertainment unlike any other festival in the world. For five days the Pilton farm plays host to a tented city in Somerset. As well as music from nearly every genre imaginable on over 50 stages, there's performing arts with cabaret, theatre, circus, children's entertainment, poetry, healing, green crafts and information and much more. Vibrant, spontaneous, colourful, and hugely entertaining. The dates for the 2011 Festival confirmed as Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.

What's on?

Expect something like 2,000 performances at 50 or so venues including music, cabaret, theatre, circus, a fantastic Kidz area, something will be replacing the departing Leftfield stage, poetry, green crafts and information and loads, loads more ... much more than just the music, so make sure you check it all out!

Music on the main stages runs from around 11am each morning until 00:30 on the Friday and Saturday and midnight on the Sunday (longer stage running times than just about every other festival), with entertainment on some of the smaller stages running later (until 6am in Shangri-La).

Registration

Everyone who plans to the come the Festival must register, and that includes children aged 13, 14 and 15. 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 you must make sure they all register!

Registration does not reserve or guarantee you a ticket when they go on sale some time in October, exact date to be confirmed, but if you don't register you will not be able to buy a weekend ticket for Glastonbury Festival 2011. If you opt to save this information you will be able to use your registration number again in future years. Make sure the e-mail address you provide is one to which you will have long term access.

Those who registered in 2008 need to re-register as the details were only kept for two years. Those who registered in 2009 or 2010 were offered the chance to save their details - if you did so, your existing registration number is still valid. If you did not opt to have your details saved, then you will need to register again this year.

Tickets

Tickets have sold out. All registered festival-goers who bought tickets reserved them using the deposit scheme at a price of £50 per ticket. Balance payments for UK and international bookers have come to a close. Anyone who decided not to pay their balance in 2011 will be refunded their deposit, minus a £10 administration fee. A final re-sale took place at 7pm on Tuesday 17th May.

Car park tickets, campervan tickets and routing stickers will be sent out with the Festival tickets; unless bought in a later transaction, in which case they will be sent separately and will have a separate booking reference for use on the ticket tracker.

Ticket purchasers may wish to add the optional TicketPlan Protection for an additional £4.50 per person when paying the balance for tickets. Should they then be unable to attend the Festival, this should enable them to receive a refund for the face value of the Festival tickets.

Refund

Those wanting a refund for their ticket are asked to contact Seetickets on 0844 412 4626 before 11.59pm on Friday 6th May. Please note that a £10 administration charge will be retained from all refunded tickets.

After Friday, depending on the number of ticket refunds requested, Festival organisers say that there may be "an extremely limited resale of tickets".

If there is a resale, notice will be given at least 24 hours in advance. In order to buy a ticket in any resale ticket buyers need to be registered. Registration to buy tickets for 2011 will also close at 11.59pm on Friday 6th May.

After Friday 6th May, tickets are non-refundable. However, those who pruchased the TicketPlan Protection for their ticket and if their reason for not being able to come is covered by the policy, a claim can be made by contacting the Ticketplan helpline on 0870 950 1119.

Glastonbury Festival Green Traveller

Glastonbury Festival wants to reward people for choosing to come to the event by public transport or by bicycle. The Festival has launched a 'Glastonbury Festival Green Traveller' package which they hope will provide an extra incentive for Festival goers to "go Green".

Ticket holders who arrive at the Festival by public transport or bicycle will be given a Green Traveller lanyard, offering:

- Vouchers for discounts on main meals
- Solar showers, solely provided for Green Travellers
- Access to compost toilets
- A discount on a Festival T-shirt

Over 50 per cent of Glastonbury Festival's CO2 total emissions come from how the Festival goer makes their way to the site. The Festival have said they understand that public transport can be expensive and will be working on trying to keep the prices this summer fair. There will be more information on the Green Traveller scheme (and how it will work) announced soon.

Coaches

Coach is probably the best way to arrive - not only is this more friendly to the environment, it can be more fun than a car with the chance to meet new people before you get to the Festival. The services drop you at the Festival Bus Station near Red Gate 1, right next to the entrance (much closer since 2002 than it had been previously).

You can buy coach tickets direct to the Festival from National Express from most major towns & cities the official coach partner of the Festival. Information about these services are available on the National Express website as well as the facility to book online.

Registration

Everyone who plans to the come the Festival must register, and that includes children aged 13, 14 and 15. Each ticket sold will feature a photograph of the person in whose name it is registered and will be non-transferable.

Festival Ethos

The Festival wants people to think about their journey to the Festival, to use public transport, or if coming by car to share transport with others. The Festival is committed to minimising the amount of waste, and managing the on site collection of that waste efficiently, 'reduce, reuse and recycle'.

Glastonbury Festival believes that work begins at home, at Worthy Farm. Looking after the fields, the hedges and the livestock has always been the Festival's number one concern, and it is what life is all about.

Festivals goers should think responsibly when they are packing their things to take to the Festival, and not bring items that will end up in Landfill, or that they won't want to take back home again, remember to "Limit what you bring, and clean up behind you."

Opening times

The Festival site is not expected to open before 8.00am on Wednesday 22nd June. It is expected that 2010's option to sleep in the car parks from 9pm on Tuesday night will once again be in operation. Please note there are no facilities available in the car parks on Tuesday night and people are expected to stay in their cars. It is also expected that Campervans will be able to arrive from Tuesday afternoon. From 8.00am on Wednesday pedestrian gates operate 24 hours a day until the end of the Festival. If you have any problems with your ticket, or getting on site, there are enquiry cabins at each pedestrian gate to assist you.
