Ticket sales for the Somerset Festival are due to take place next week, but music-lovers may have noticed that the price has gone up.

The Glastonbury Festival ticket sale is set to take place next week, and organisers have begun sending information to registered users.

Eagle-eyed festival-goers may have noticed in their emails and on the official Glasto website that the ticket price has gone up a touch in time for its 50th year.

Tickets for Glastonbury 2020 have now been priced at "£265 per person + £5 booking fee".

In 2019 general tickets were £248 + £5 booking fee, meaning the cost of Somerset festival has increased by £17.

But would-be festival-goers need not worry about the price hike just yet, as the first ticket sales only require a £50 deposit for each person.

The increase in price will no doubt reflect the experience, as organisers plan to go bigger than ever for their 50th anniversary.
