Glastonbury 2009: Early Ticket Details

Glastonbury Lives On.......

Tickets for Glastonbury 2009 will go on sale early, with 100,000 festival-goers being able to purchase tickets in October 2008. Instead of paying the £170+ expected price, a £50 deposit will be accepted with the remainder being paid April 2009. If fans change their mind during that time, they will only have to pay a £10 charge.

Demand is expected to be high following this years Glastonbury success and the promise of more traditional headliners instead of a controversial headline act like Jay-Z. Michael Eavis revealed that some bands are already on board for Glastonbury 2009 with three or four headliners in mind.

It cost about £22m to stage Glastonbury and competition is tougher than ever as festivals run right across the UK during the summer, yet almost £2m will be donated to charity. Instead of paying headline acts more than £200,000, Eavis told the BBC that performing at Glastonbury is good for the artist, record sales and record companies. He was also pleased a younger crowd had returned to Glastonbury.
