Get the answer to these questions and many more below:

When does Glastonbury Festival 2019 take place?

Glastonbury Festival will take place from Wednesday 26 - Sunday 30 June 2019.

When can you arrive?

Doors open to the general public in the early Wednesday just before the festival and close on the Monday.

People tend to get there early to pitch their tents in their perfect spots, but the real activity doesn't tend till start until the Thursday night, with booked acts and headliners on from Friday until Sunday.

When do Glastonbury tickets go on resale?

As the official festival website states: "Any ticket deposits for which the balance has not been paid by April 8th 2019 will be automatically refunded to the card on which they were booked..."

With resale tickets released only when deposits are refunded, this means that coach tickets will probably go on resale on Thursday 11 April from 6pm, with general sale tickets on Sunday 14 April from 9am.

If not, they're sure to take place the following Thursday for coach tickets and Sunday for general sale tickets.

How much will Glastonbury tickets cost?

In 2019, general admission tickets will cost £248 + £5 booking fee.

Will I have to pay straight away?

Yes. The Glastonbury website confirms: "Tickets purchased in resales after April 8th 2019 must be paid for in full at point of booking."

Do I have to register?

Nobody can buy a ticket without having a unique registration number which comes with your photo ID, so if you haven't registered already we're afraid you've already fallen at the first hurdle.

See you next year?
