To secure a Glastonbury Festival 2016 ticket, those who paid the deposit last year must now pay the balance of the ticket cost during the ticket balance payment window - from 9am on Friday 1st April until 11:59pm (BST) on Thursday 7th April 2016. The balance due is £178 (plus a £5 booking fee) per person; plus a £7.75 transaction fee (postage and packing or box office collection) per order. Whilst paying your balance ticket holders will be given the option of booking ticket cancellation cover and car park passes priced at £35. Plus a chance to order a reusable drinks bottle to cut down on plastic pollution.
This year organisers particularly want to highlight the Festival's environmental policies which all ticket purchasers are required to subscribe to. The pledge must be agreed to buy those paying off their balances. It is not possible to attend the Festival without agreeing to Love the Farm, Leave no Trace.
Ticket holders for this summer's Glastonbury Festival are reminded to take part in their future by making sure they apply for an EU Referendum postal or proxy vote. You will find links to the form to postal vote here and proxy voting here. For more information (see the news page here).
