THE cost of tickets for next year's Glastonbury Festival have increased to £340, with organisers citing “enormous rises in the costs of running this vast show”.

Full weekend tickets for Glastonbury 2023 will cost £335, and festivalgoers will need to pay a £5 booking fee.

Buyers will need to put down a £50 deposit for each ticket they purchase when they go on sale from early November.

The full balance will need to be paid by the first week of April 2023. Tickets will be sold exclusively at

Tickets last went on general sale three years ago for Glastonbury 2020, which was later cancelled for two years because of Covid. They cost £265 plus a £5 booking fee.

Tickets for 2019’s festival were sold in 2018 for £248, plus a £5 booking fee.

Writing on Twitter, festival co-organiser Emily Eavis addressed the rise in prices

She said: “We have tried very hard to minimise the increase in price on the ticket but we’re facing enormous rises in the costs of running this vast show, whilst still recovering from the huge financial impact of two years without a festival because of Covid.

“The £50 deposit on ticket sales day in November will be the same as ever, with the balance not due until April.

“And, as always, there will be opportunities for many thousands of people to come as volunteers or as part of the crew.

“In these incredibly challenging times, we want to continue to bring you the best show in the world and provide our charities with funds which are more vital than ever.

“We are, as always, hugely appreciative of your ongoing support.”

Some festivalgoers have taken to Twitter to express their sadness at the rise in prices, with some saying they will struggle to pay the fee by April.

Others defended the prices by comparing them to the cost of stadium concerts and saying organisers are “just another victim of the current climate”.

Festivalgoers will be able to purchase coach and ticket packages for the 2023 festival from 6pm on November 3. Standard tickets will be avilable from 9am on November 6.
