Glastonbury has been ranked as the most expensive weekend music festival to attend in the UK.

This was based purely on ticket price, with it excluding additional costs such as travel, parking, food, and drink.

Glastonbury general admission price for a weekend was stated as £355, which was about the second-most expensive options in Reading and Leeds at £325.

The analysis was carried out by Cashfloat, who also found that Bestival provided the cheapest general admission ticket.

Sarah continued: "Of course, Bestival also claimed the title for the UK festival offering the most budget-friendly one-day admission pass.

"Other festivals offered variations, with certain days priced slightly higher than others. Nonetheless, the Isle of Wight Festival secured the second spot at £120.00 per ticket, followed by Reading and Leeds Festival at £125 per ticket.

"Wireless Festival emerged as the priciest option for one-day tickets, while some festivals did not provide a one-day ticket option at all."
