article imageGlastonbury Festival tickets set to go on sale

At 9 a.m. on October 5, tickets for the 2015 Glastonbury Festival will go on sale. This annual event has been getting bigger and more popular each year. Headliners from last year included Metallica and Kasabian, but Dolly Parton stole the show.
Last year the 150,000 tickets were sold out in just one hour and 27 minutes, setting a new record as over 1 million people tried getting them. This year, even with an increase in ticket price, the event organizers are expecting to meet or beat that record.
“We genuinely try to make the ticket system as fair as it can be, but when demand outstrips supply, it is an unfortunate inevitability that some people will be left disappointed,” said Michael and Emily Eavis, the organizers of the Glastonbury Festival, in a statement after ending last year’s ticket sales.
Rumors about guests for the 2015 show favor Fleetwood Mac, Kate Bush, Prince and Oasis. Diana Ross, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Elton John and The Stone Roses also were listed by odds maker Paddy Power as possibilities to attend. Other possibilities that were not listed by Paddy Power include David Bowie, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. The guests won’t be announced until after April, but Mr. Eavis has already said that Prince is not one of the three acts he has already booked.
Although concert tickets for sale are at the beginning of October, fans who buy them only have to put down a L50 deposit. When the hundreds of acts in the lineup are revealed, people who want to attend can pay the remainder of the ticket cost. For 2015, ticket prices have been raised from L210 to L220.
Glastonbury Festival is one of the largest and most popular music festivals in the world. The 2015 show will run June 24 to June 28 at the Pilton Farm in Somerset. You must be pre-registered to purchase tickets when they go on sale on October 5, and you can only book six ticket packages per transaction. Organizers are expecting approximately 2,000 performances at 60 plus venues during the festival.
