History of the Festival
The Festival has a rich history spanning over five decades. It was conceived by Michael Eavis, a sailor with the British merchant navy who inherited a 150-acre dairy farm at the head of the Whitelake River in Somerset, England. The farm was located on the slope of the rolling Mendip Limestone Hills and criss-crossed by two streams, making its location unusually picturesque.
Having left his plans to to spend a life at sea behind, Eavis conceived the idea of a music festival after attending a Led Zeppelin concert at the Bath Festival of Blues in 1969.
The festival has evolved rapidly from its humble beginnings, when 1,500 attendees gathered for a single day of music on a dairy farm in 1970, to being the iconic five-day extravaganza it is today.
Tickets for the inaugural event, then called the Pop, Blues, and Folk Event, and hosted by Michael Eavis,were sold for £1 each. Notable performers at the event included Al Stewart and the Pink Fairies.
The next year, the festival returned in a bigger avatar, this time hosted by Andrew Kerr and boasting of an even more impressive lineup of artists including David Bowie, Traffic, and Fairport Convention. The 1971 event was also the first time that the event was referred to as the Fair.
As the event grew in fame, several notable artists from the world of music and the arts have graced its stages. These include legendary performers such as Johnny Cash, Paul Mc Cartney, Radiohead, and Robbie Williams and contemporary headliners such as Beyoncé, Coldplay, and Lana Del Rey.
With each passing year, the festival grew in popularity, such that the demand for Festival tickets today is way higher than its supply. It attracts a huge international audience, eager to experience its unique blend of music and arts. Each year, millions of people apply for tickets to the festival, but the festival can only accommodate around 200,000 people.
Today, this Festival has become a must-attend event for music enthusiasts and adventure-seekers alike, and Michael Eavis’ once-nondescript Worthy Farm is known as the world’s most famous dairy farm.
When Do General Festival Hospitality Tickets Go on Sale?
General hospitality tickets for the festival have been up for sale since the second week of November.
There are two types of tickets available:
Ticket Packages with Coach Transportation: These include both a festival ticket and a coach seat. This can be a great option for festival-goers who wish to take advantage of affordable transportation and also reduce their carbon footprint.
General Admission Tickets: These tickets grant access to the festival and its various attractions but do not include transportation.
Unfortunately, the general festival tickets are no longer available on the event’s official website. But don’t worry, the festival is soon reselling tickets. They usually resell cancelled and unpaid tickets during the spring, so keep in mind that there will be only a handful of tickets.
Resale date of general festival tickets with coach services is April 20th. Standard/general admission tickets sale will take place on April 23rd, and accommodation tickets resale date is April 27th.
Please note that you must first be registered on the Festival’s official website to purchase tickets. You can register for free, but make sure to register fast and keep your registration details safe, as you’ll need them to secure your tickets.
To buy normal festival tickets, follow the festival's official social media and communication channels and stay informed about any updates to the ticket sales process.
Where Can You Buy Hospitality Tickets?

Things to Consider When Buying Festival Tickets
Though it’s already late to obtain 2023 tickets, you can still secure them when they come up for resale in late April. So be proactive in your preparations, stay informed about ticket sale announcements, and explore alternative options if necessary.
Consider the following tips to increase the chance of securing your tickets:
Understand Hospitality Benefits: Hospitality tickets provide a premium festival experience, which goes well beyond that offered by general tickets. With hospitality tickets, guests get access to exclusive camping areas, private parking, and a host of additional facilities. By understanding the benefits, you can better appreciate the value of these exclusive tickets.
Coordinate With Friends: If you plan on attending the festival with friends or family, make sure everyone is registered and on the same page regarding ticket purchasing plans. This way, you can act quickly when hospitality tickets are up for sale and increase the likelihood of securing tickets for your group.
Be Prepared With Your Payment Method: Festival tickets, including hospitality tickets, sell out in a flash. Therefore, ensure your payment method is up-to-date, and you have the necessary funds available to avoid any delays or issues during the purchasing process. Also keep in mind that See Tickets, the official ticket partner for the Festival, may have specific payment requirements or restrictions.
Check Resale Opportunities: If you’ve already missed out on the initial sale of the festival's hospitality tickets, you may still have a chance to secure your tickets. The festival is offering a resale of returned or cancelled tickets. Get updated with the Festival's official channels for any announcements or updates about tickets on resale.
Explore Alternative Options: If you’re unable to buy tickets from the official tickets provider, consider partners like The Sybarite that can secure hospitality tickets for you.
How Can You Apply for Early Bird Tickets?
The Festival does not offer a specific early-bird ticket information or option. The ticket sales process typically involves two main sales: the Coach Package Sale and the General Admission Sale.
However, if you want to improve your chances of securing tickets for next year’s Festival, which is to say, the Festival 2024, follow these steps:
Register: You must first register on the festival's website to be able to purchase festival tickets. Registration is free and only takes a few minutes. You'll need to provide your personal details, including your full name, address, and a photograph. Ensure you register well in advance.
Stay Informed: Keep updated with the official website and social media channels to stay informed about ticket sale dates or any additional information.
Coach Package Sale: A limited number of coach packages will be available for purchase before the General Admission sale. The package includes both your festival ticket and return coach travel from various locations around the UK. It typically takes place in early October.
General Admission Sale: The majority of tickets are sold during the General Admission sale, which usually occurs shortly after the Coach Package Sale. Keep in mind that they tend to sell out quickly.
Be Prepared: On the day of the ticket sales, ensure you have your registration number, payment details, and a reliable internet connection ready. To increase your chances of successfully purchasing tickets, consider setting up multiple devices and getting help from family and friends.
Is It Difficult to Get Festival VIP Tickets?
Yes, it can be difficult to get VIP tickets due to the high demand.
The Festival itself does not officially offer conventional VIP hospitality tickets. The festival organisers believe in providing a fair and inclusive experience for all attendees, meaning there are usually no exclusive VIP areas or tickets with special privileges available for purchase.
However, you can secure a VIP ticket from a handful of service providers like The Sybarite, who partner with select hospitality specialists to provide the most exclusive luxury experiences at the festival for their patrons.
Since hospitality tickets tend to be in short supply, you may first want to ensure you have allocated enough budget to cover the ticket costs. Next, make sure that if you’re paying for a VIP ticket, you get the exclusive privileges meant for just VIP ticket holders such as backstage access and access to performers’ arenas
For example, the festival offers pre-erected Tipis in a dedicated Tipi Village with a more upscale camping experience. You can book these Tipis in addition to General Admission tickets. However, they do not grant you access to any exclusive VIP areas or performances.
Similarly, there are off-site glamping options with a more luxurious accommodation experience during the festival provided by third-party companies and typically include comfortable accommodation, transportation to and from the festival site, and additional amenities. However, these too, do not provide access to exclusive VIP areas..
