The Glastonbury Festival tips & tricks

  • 1
    Bring your own food and drinks
    Save money and time, but don't bring too much. The limit is 16 cans of beer or cider or 3 liters of wine per person, and no glass bottles are allowed. You can also buy food and drinks from the many stalls and bars on the festival grounds, but they might be expensive and busy.
  • 2
    Be prepared for any weather
    You'll need layers, waterproofs, sunscreen, and a hat to protect yourself from the cold, the rain, and the sun. You'll also need wellies and a torch to walk through the wet and dark fields at night.
  • 3
    Choose your camping spot wisely
    Stay away from areas that can get flooded or areas that are close to toilets or stages that can be loud or stinky. Get there early to find a good place, and put something unique on your tent so you can recognize it easily.
  • 4
    Experience more than just the music
    There are so many other things to see and do, like art installations, circus acts, comedy shows, theater performances, workshops, healing fields, and more. Keep an open mind and a sense of adventure, and you might stumble upon something wonderful.
  • 5
    Enjoy yourself and be careful
    Glastonbury Festival is a place where you can do whatever you want, but also where you have to take care of yourself and others. Drink enough water, use the free water taps and refill stations, take some time to rest from the crowds and noise, keep your valuables safe, respect nature and the people around you, and don't take anything you're not sure about.

What's the price of Glastonbury Festival tickets?

The full weekend ticket to Glastonbury 2023 costs £335 plus a £5 booking fee. This is £55 more than the last year, which the co-organizer Emily Eavis justified by the increasing expenses of putting on the festival and the huge financial loss of two years without a festival because of COVID.

Can you buy Glastonbury Festival tickets in June?

We're sorry to tell you this, but the official festival's website says that there are no more tickets for Glastonbury 2023. There was the general admission resale two months ago, in April — you could get up to 6 tickets in one transaction by paying a £50 deposit for each person.

Be careful not to fall victim to unauthorized touts who may try to sell fake or invalid tickets. You cannot buy Glastonbury Festival tickets second-hand. All tickets for the festival are individually personalized to the named ticket holder and are strictly non-transferable. Security checks are carried out on arrival, and only the specified ticket holder will be admitted to the festival.

How to get to the Glastonbury Festival for free?

If you're determined to see your favorite performers at all costs, there are some ways — legal, of course!

Here are some of the companies that usually hire workers and volunteers for the festival:
