Glastonbury festival 2014: ticket sale details announced
Regular tickets will go on sale from 6 October
, with coach package deals available three days earlier
This year's festival mud may still be clinging to some of your belongings, but it's already time to start thinking about Glastonbury 2014. Tickets for next year's festival, which will take place on 25-29 June, will go on sale on Sunday 6 October at 9am, costing £210 plus a £5 booking fee – although a £50 deposit is all that's needed to secure a ticket before paying the bill in April.
There's good news for those who want to travel by coach: this year, coach packages will be available three days before the main ticket sale, from 6pm on Thursday 3 October. The aim is to "reward green travellers", according to a festival spokesperson.
Although no acts have been announced yet, organiser Michael Eavis has said the three headline acts are already lined up. Rumours of potential headliners include David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Daft Punk, Foo Fighters, Elbow, Kanye West, Oasis and Adele.
The past summer's festival saw Arctic Monkeys, Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons headline, with Eavis declaring the lineup "hard to beat".
Festivalgoers will have to register on the Glastonbury website before buying tickets, with a maximum purchase limit of six each per transaction, both for standard and coach-plus-ticket packages. Those interested in buying Glastonbury tickets should head online to glastonbury.seetickets.com, or call 0844 412 4635 from a UK phone (for international callers +44 1159 934 183).
