Here are some important Questions & Answers regarding Glastonbury Festival 2011 Tickets
- When is Glastonbury Festival?
Glastonbury 2011 takes place Wednesday 22nd of June – Sunday 26th of June 2011
Normally, every 5th year is a fallow year, but due to the Olympics, the fallow year has been moved from 2011 to 2012.
The gates will open at 8am on the Wednesday and close at 5pm on the Monday immediately after the festival.
It is likely that, due to it’s success in 2010, the car parks will open on the Tuesday night, immediately before the festival, keep in mind that you will have to sleep in your car, there are only toilet facilities and you will not be allowed to queue.
Glasto.biz reccommends planning your journey carefully, although the music does not start until the Friday of the festival, the best camping spots fill up very quickly.

ANY OTHER TICKET AGENCY SELLING TICKETS ARE SELLING FAKE/ILLEGAL TICKETS AND THEY WILL NOT GET YOU INTO THE FESTIVAL.
- Where do I register for a ticket?
Please make your registration with SeeTickets via their Glastonbury Registration Website
You will need to provide a passport photo of yourself at time of registration.
- I’ve registered for a previous festival. Am I still registered?
Possibly. To check to see if you already have a vaild registration number, click here
- I’ve bought a ticket, how do I track it?
You can track your tickets via the Seetickets ticket tracking service (found here).
You will need your transaction reference number (not your registration number) and your email address or Post Code. If you’ve lost your reference number, there is a retrieval service via the same link.
If you bought tickets over the phone, you must call Seetickets and have your email address added to your order for you to be able to track your tickets.
- How much will tickets cost?
Tickets cost £195 + £5 Booking Fee + £4.95 – That’s £204.95
- That’s really expensive, is it worth it?
Hell Yeah! You can expect to pay around the same amount for Reading & Leeds festivals (after the early bird tickets). They have less stages, are not child friendly, don’t allow you to take your own drink into the arenas, have banned flags from the arenas…
Glastonbury Festival doesn’t charge you extra for camping (an extra fee is payable for camper vans), doesn’t charge you extra to arrive early (everyone can arrive from 8am on the Wednesday), has a specific kids area and family camping and is generally said to have a far nicer atmosphere.
Glastonbury Festival is the UK’s biggest music festival, it is attended by people from around the World because of it’s reputation. If you’ve been to other festivals and not Glastonbury, then be prepared for the sheer size of the festival. It’s impossible to take it all in during the weekend (I’ve been 5 times and still have not been everywhere!)
Plus, how many gigs would you go to after paying £200, maybe 7 or 8. You’ll see many more than that for sure.
- When will the lineup be announced?
This is a tricky one, it used to be in the June just before the festival, then it was May, and now it’s kind of all over the place, but certainly not before tickets have sold out
