Glastonbury guru Michael Eavis has announced the details for next year’s festival tickets.
The event will return from its one-year hiatus with tickets priced at £205 – a rise of £10 over the 2011 ticket prices.
There will be additional fees for car park and camper van passes, as well as ticket protection.
The annual online scramble for tickets will begin on October 7, although punters must have registered with the festival first.
The registration period ends on September 30.
Mr Eavis said he had tried to keep the ticket price the same as last year, but rising land rent and high diesel prices meant this had not been possible.
“I tried my very best, but the finance lady said that it couldn’t be done,” he said.
“It’s only gone up by £10 – so it’s less than the rate of inflation, at least.”
Customers can chose to pay the full price of the ticket, or a £50 deposit with the remaining balance paid in April.
Up to eight tickets can be bought in a single transaction, as long as you have the registration details of the people you want to buy for.
All payments must be by debit card.
As always, local tickets will be on sale later in the year, although festival organisers recommend trying your luck when the national rush for tickets takes place in October.
“Basically, local people get three chances to buy tickets,” said Beth Greenwards from the festival.
“They can buy them when they go on national sale, try again in the local sale, and then there is the resale that takes place later.
“We make sure local residents get three bites of the cherry, instead of the two given to everyone else.”
Avon and Somerset Police have made no objection to the transfer of the Glastonbury Festival licence from Melvin Benn and Festival Republic to a new team from Festival Republic’s parent company Live Nation.
This means there are no grounds for Mendip District Council to require a fresh licence application for the festival.
