It’s no secret that this year’s Glastonbury Festival tickets are more sought after in 2019 than in any other year. With such unprecedented demand its looking very likely that the re-sale won’t last long enough to finish your 9am coffee!

Now after 6 months of nervous waiting in the shadows of those lucky ‘chosen ones’ in October, it’s finally your turn to step up and get yours!  We’ve compiled 5 tips to ticket success that should be leave you beaming with confidence in the resale process and why the wait will have been soo worth it!

      1. Know Your Numbers

During the 2019 Glastonbury Festival main ticket sale the number of tickets you could get per transactions was 6, however it’s now known that in the April resale that number actually drops to 4 per transaction.  It has caught a number of people off guard so now is the time to regroup!

      2.  The Power of 4G

October saw many people trying to use Refresh apps and browser automation to try and cheat their way to success.  These were largely reported to have been unsuccessful and many have speculated these were the possible cause of the issues many had with See Tickets.  Many people reported pages not being able to load whilst connected to broadband, we heard overwhelming (anecdotal) evidence that people using 3G and 4G to connect were actually far more successful in getting tickets. Surely this is worth considering at least one mobile device on 4G for the resale?

     3.  Friends & Family

The Foolproof Friends and Family plan is widely considered to be asking ‘too much’ of people but at the end of the day the more people and devices that are trying to refresh that page; the greater your chances of getting those prized tickets in the resale.  Be sure to brief everyone in your ticket group to do the same so you end up with an army of Mums, Dads, Brothers, Sisters, Cousins, Aunties, Uncles and mates all supporting you in your quest for tickets.

     4. Be Prepared 

We’ve compiled some basic preparations that you need to know in advance of the resales this Thursday Evening and Sunday Morning;

How many people are in your group trying to get tickets?

What are your groups’ registration numbers and details?

How many devices do you each have to try on? If someone has 10 and someone else has 1, divide them up between you.

Have you all got enough available funds to make the purchase?

5.  Check Twitter Announcements 

During the resale keep one eye on updates from the Glastonbury Festival Official, Emily Eavis and See Tickets on social media as they often give out encouraging information of the half way point as well as  the dreaded ‘Sold Out’ announcement.

That concludes our ‘5 Tips to Ticket Success’ in The Glastonbury Resale. Good luck with securing your tickets and we look forward to seeing you at the festival! If you are looking for a luxury glamping experience during your stay at Glastonbury Festival then check out what we have to offer.
