Some of you guys who didn’t get the tickets for the fest in first go must waiting super excitedly for the Glastonbury tickets resale 2017. And now Glastonbury’s organizers recently confirmed that the festival would be taking a break in 2018, meaning that 2017 would be the last event for two years. Tickets sold out with predictable speed when they went on sale in October, with nearly 200,000 disappearing in 50 minutes.
A chunk of those 200,000, however, will be returned for resale when current ticket holders choose not to pay off the rest of the ticket price and put them back on the market through the festival’s deposit scheme – and, on 20 and 23 April, they will be made available to buy.

What about ticket touts?

There’s only one website to head to, and that’s glastonbury.seetickets.com. Seasoned ticket-buyers will advise you to have several browsers up on as many devices as possible. You can buy up to six tickets with each transaction, whether you’re buying the coach and ticket package or just the ticket alone.
