Festivals: Glastonbury 2017 Ticket Sale Dates Announced

Emily Eavis has announced important details regarding her and her Pa’s Glastonbury Festival

To begin, the ticket sale dates for next Summer’s 2017 event has been revealed, with coach & ticket packages being sold from 6pm BST on Thursday 6th October, before general admission tickets go on sale at 9am BST on Sunday 9th October

The ticket price for Glastonbury 2017 will be £238 + £5 booking fee per ticket, (children aged 12 and under are admitted free of charge and do not need a ticket) and, as in recent years, only a deposit will be required in October, before the full balance is due in Spring 2017

In addition, the Eavis’ have this week announced that plans for a special edition of the festival in 2018 have been called off, with the proposed move to Longleat unfortunately falling through. This not only means that there will now be a complete break for the famous festival in 2018, but may also put the future of one of Britain’s most important institutions in jeopardy

About this decision, Michael Eavis recently stated in an interview with The Telegraph:
“Longleat probably won’t happen anymore. Lord Bath is really keen. I went to him because I knew him when he was a boy. But he and his son aren’t agreeing, and they don’t speak very much, so it’s hard to make decisions. I haven’t been able to sit down with all of them at the same time…They let me down gently about their decision. I went round to their house and we had a very long discussion. They said to clean up all that mud, they’d have to restrict the whole of the operations at Longleat for about three months and it’s too expensive.”

Emily has already stated that Glastonbury will return to Worthy Farm in 2019, despite concerns regarding a gas pipe on the site, which may affect the long-term future of the festival, but we can only keep our fingers crossed that it will all get sorted and continues to reign
as the finest festival on the planet
