As the local sales approach for the Somerset Festival, we answer whether it's possible for fans to buy a one day ticket.

General sale tickets for Glastonbury Festival sold out earlier this month in just over 30 minutes, but there are still a few chances to get to the festival.

For those lucky enough to be considered local residents of the Somerset event, where so far Diana Ross has been confirmed for the legends slot, there's a chance to buy a portion of held back tickets this Sunday 27 October.

For everyone else, there's also the resales which take place in April 2020 and the introduction of a special ballot for the 50th anniversary, which will give 50 people the change to buy a pair of tickets to the festival.

Can you buy day tickets to Glastonbury Festival 2020?

Yes and no.

Unfortunately most people can NOT buy one day tickets to Glastonbury. Unlike a lot of festivals, Glastonbury's general sale tickets are for the entire weekend of the festival.

However, in the local sale, which takes place this Sunday 27 October, local residents from Mendip and Central Somerset are able to buy Sunday tickets for the festival.

These tickets are available on Sunday 27 October at 11am, after the full weekend tickets go on sale.

The official Glastonbury website explains: "This wider catchment area includes residents of towns such as Bruton, Frome & Radstock, which fall outside the local full weekend ticket catchment, but who may still experience some inconvenience during the Festival period."

One condition of buying a Sunday ticket for Glastonbury is that you must travel to the festival site by bus only.

How much do Sunday tickets cost?
