So you want to go to Glastonbury this year?

Music fans who want to go to the renowned Glastonbury festival this year will have to register for tickets, before actually buying them, between 8am on 1 February and 28 February.

Eager festival-goers can register interest online at or by picking up a form at Millets camping shops. However no-one can buy tickets until 1 April. As part of the registration process, music fans will need to submit a passport-sized photograph which will then appear on tickets.

The measures have been adopted in a bid to combat ticket touting in the run up to one of the UK's most legendary and anticipated festivals of the year.

So you'll have to plan early if you want to be in with a chance of seeing Bjork, Artic Monkeys, Arcade Fire – just some of the names confirmed to play this year's festival between 22-24 June.
