Online registration is free of charge and only takes a few minutes, but it is too late to register if you intend to book tickets in either the coach or general admission sales in October. Registration reopened the week commencing the 5th October (after the general sale).
Everyone who wants a ticket to the Festival in 2017 must be registered, and that includes children aged 13, 14 and 15. Children aged 12 and under do not require tickets and do not need to register. Each ticket features a photograph of the person in whose name it is registered and will be non-transferable.

There will be a small resale of returned tickets over two separate days, and can only be booked by those who are registered, as part of the Festival's system to beat ticket touting.

Please note that all tickets purchased in the resale must be paid for in full at the point of booking (there is no deposit scheme offered for resale).
For general admission it is expected to be a maximum of 4 tickets per transaction, and for coaches a maximum of 2 tickets per transaction.
Car Park tickets priced at £45 can be booked at the same time as paying off balances, in the early sale they can not be purchased until the balance was paid for at least one of the tickets on a booking in the Spring, and will be available any time after the balance was paid for on at least one of the tickets on the order (subject to availability).
Anyone who decides not to pay their balance in 2017 will be refunded their deposit, minus an administration fee. Those tickets will then be put forward to a re-sale, which is likely to be in April 2017.
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.
The number of tickets available per transaction for registered customers is six - as long as each deposit is matched with valid registration numbers. For details about registering see above.
Tickets will be dispatched to the address provided for the first name on the booking. If balances on tickets were paid separately, then each payee will receive their own tickets. Ticket were received at least 14 days before the Festival starts.
UK Tickets will be sent out by Royal Mail from the week commencing Monday 8th May 2017. Tickets will be sent to the address specified when booking. A signature will be required at the point of the delivery.

Tickets are non-transferable
Glastonbury tickets (including deposits) are entirely non-transferable. If one of a multiple booking is no longer able to attend the Festival they can obtain a refund before Spring 2017; however that deposit cannot be reserved for someone else. Cancelled tickets will be put back on general release in the resale.
If the balance is not paid by the applicable deadline then the amount paid less a £20 administration fee will be repaid. If a ticket is paid for in full by the applicable deadline but cancelled by midnight on Friday May 5th 2017 you will be reimbursed the value of your ticket less a £20 administration fee. After this date no refunds will be made other than in the event of the cancellation of the Glastonbury Festival 2017. Booking fees and Postage and Packing charges are non-refundable.
Payment by card for UK sales (both online and by telephone) can be made by debit cards, and credit cards will also be accepted for UK sales. For the purpose of ticket sales the UK includes Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
Debit card sales will be processed immediately in most cases and certainly within five working days of the sale being confirmed. Cheques will be banked as soon as they are received. Personal cheques were not accepted.
Tickets cannot be purchased by telephone this year.
Postal orders and cheques raised by either a building society or a bank (as a Bankers Draft) are also accepted as payment on the telephone ticket line. Orders are not accepted by fax, email or personal callers.
Those purchasing online will be sent a confirmation email and booking reference number. If you do not receive this within 24 hours you were asked to check spam folders. Any queries about purchase needed the booking reference number so the email had to be saved.
The ticket tracker used the booking reference number to confirm purchases.
Any transaction that results in a charge back or payment dispute was cancelled. It was the ticket buyers responsibility to ensure that they had sufficient funds in their account to pay for the tickets.
Please note, ticket purchasers may be asked for additional Visa or Mastercard security information when they buy their tickets online, so it's best for these ticket purchasers to be signed up to their card's security service before they buy. Depending upon the method of payment, ticket purchasers will be directed to either Verified by Visa or Mastercard SecureCode for payment authorisation. Those who often make purchases online may already be signed up, but if not already card holders will need to do so before their transaction can be processed. Signing up only takes a few minutes, and is recommended. Those signed up could use their password, rather than have to fill out extra forms when buying tickets. Please click here if for Visa, or here for Mastercard/Maestro.
UK Tickets could only be bought by Debit Card or Bankers Draft/Postal Order. International ticket purchases can only be made using either Visa or Mastercard credit cards.
There are no separate disabled weekend tickets. However, once disabled customers have secured their Festival ticket in the usual way, they can contact the Festival for an application form for access to disabled facilities on-site. Everyone planning to buy Festival tickets needs to register. For further information, please go to the Festival's Disabled Information page.
International bookings must be made on the website. International ticket purchases can only be made using either Visa or Mastercard credit cards.
All international ticket buyers must have been registered. Those permanently living abroad, can only buy tickets online. Those buying tickets who were not UK Citizens but were currently in the UK, and have a UK debit card and UK address, could buy in the same way as a UK resident. However if they used a credit card registered in another country, they must purchase online using their overseas address.
International ticket balance payments will be taken at the same time as UK balances. It is the ticket buyers responsibility to remember to pay their balance.
International tickets are sent out by registered international post, so a full international address is needed when booking. International ticket orders can be tracked via www.royalmail.com by entering the Track and Trace number which was available via Seetickets order tracker www.seetickets.com/tracker. To access the order tracker the registered email address and booking reference number had to be used.
An overseas resident can ask a friend who is resident in the UK to purchase on their behalf, using that friend's UK address, or alternatively, a UK resident can purchase a ticket for an overseas resident as one of their ticket purchases - provided that overseas resident was registered.
Tickets are sent out by Special Delivery to the address specified when booking. A signature is required at the point of the delivery so an address had to be used where there was likely to be someone available to receive them.
Tickets for Glastonbury Festival are refundable up until Friday 5th May, however should you be concerned about the unlikely event in which you are unable to attend the event, you may wish to purchase the optional TicketPlan Protection for an additional £5.50 for general admission tickets, £6.95 for coach packages per person when paying the balance for your tickets.
Ticket holders who were unable to come to the Festival, and require a refund for their ticket should contact Seetickets on 0844 412 4626 before this date. Any tickets for which the balance is not paid in full will be automatically refunded £30 (a £20 admin fee will be retained) onto the card on which they were booked, within 5 working days of the balance payment period ending. If you already know that you aren't going to be able to come to the Festival, and want to get your £30 back before the automatic refund, then you are asked to call Seetickets on 0844 412 4626.
Tickets are non-refundable after the deadline. However, if ticket holders have bought 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 visiting www.ticketplangroup.com/refund-application-form or by writing to TicketPlan Administration Service, Leigh House, Broadway West, Leigh On Sea, Essex, SS9 2DD.
Any ticket deposits for which the balance has not been paid by April 6th 2017 will be automatically refunded to the card on which they were booked; with a £20 administration charge retained and all tickets will be cancelled. Ultimately it was the ticket buyers responsibility to ensure their ticket balance was paid on time.
Unfortunately, if tickets are delivered to ticket holders, and subsequently lost, destroyed or misplaced, organisers can not replace them.
Data collected during registration is retained by Glastonbury Festivals to enable you to book tickets for future Glastonbury Festivals. Retained information will also be used to inform you of events run by Glastonbury Festival. No information collected through registration will be offered for sale or made available to any third party.
Checks will be made at the gates and if you are clearly not the person whose face is printed on the ticket you will be denied entry.
Glastonbury organisers really want to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that are produced in 2017. One of the biggest contributions comes from how ticket holders travel to the Festival - in fact, audience transport contributes to two thirds of the Festival's total emissions.
As part of the Festival's continued commitment to green travel, 15,000 coach + ticket packages were sold in advance of the general sale at 6pm BST on Wednesday, 1st October, via glastonbury.seetickets.com, rewarding green travellers with the chance to be the first to secure their Glastonbury 2016 tickets.
As with the general release of tickets, Festival goers were able to book up to six coach + ticket packages per transaction. Along with their deposit of £50 per person, those booking coach packages will be required to pay the full coach ticket price for their journey.
A coach travelling to the Festival at full capacity is the most carbon efficient way to arrive. Travelling by coach produces 6.02kg of co2 per person. By comparison, trains produce 28.40kg/person and car/campervan 37.77kg/per person. Choosing to come by coach really is the greenest way to travel to Glastonbury. (If you do come by car, please try to make sure it is full of passengers to help reduce cars on the road and emissions.) Glastonbury will put on special festival coaches in 2017.
- For all Combined Coach and Festival Tickets, it is mandatory that you travel on the coach.
- Only the Coach travel portion of combined tickets will be sent out in advance.
- Festival tickets will be handed out to the lead booker only by the coach driver at a point during the journey.
- All coaches are for travel to the Festival site on the Wednesday or Thursday with returns on Monday.
The full list of departure towns/cities and prices for 2017 for return tickets to each route are:
