A limited number of weekend tickets for this year’s Glastonbury Festival will go on sale next week, before the main national resale in April.

But you will have to live locally or be friend or a family member of someone living in a handful of parishes close to the Festival's Worthy Farm site in order to get your hands on one.

The tickets are available exclusively to local people.

The festival tickets sold out nationally within two hours of going on sale in September.

    Please help an old grandpa from the mountains of North Carolina, US, to get tickets for him, granny and his grandson. We've never been to the UK but will be there during the time of the Glastonbury festival. Your help in getting tickets will mean we don't have to tour London.

    I see that the cost of a standard ticket is £211,what a pity this event is not held in some huge Theatre,were it to be so, like all other tickets to the Ballet,or Theatre you would be charged about £25,the remainder of the true cost would be subsidised by us tax payer's from the millions of pounds granted to the Arts Council,perhaps Glastonbury organisers might put on the London Philharmonic to play Strauss on a stage somewhere out of the way, the Arts Council would consider this art,JOB DONE

    Any local resident willing to help out a 21 year old boy from Scotland in need? I can no longer take the daily torment of not having a guaranteed ticket. I understand this is a long shot but thought it was worth a try. Please check my profile for more information about myself. Peace, Euan Mullan
