Glastonbury Ticket Registration Begins!

Glastonbury Ticket Registration Begins!

Glastonbury Festival ticket registration begins at 9am tomorrow (February 1).

As last year, hopeful festival goers are required to register their details and supply a photograph, which will be printed onto tickets, to festival organisers ahead of tickets going on general sale on April 6.

By registering for a ticket there is still no guarantee you will be able to buy ticket for the festival. Last year saw 400, 000 applicants chase 177, 000 tickets -- however Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis claims the proceedure did help beat the ticket touts.

Eavis has previously explained, "I want to keep up the momentum we gathered last year by stopping ticket touting altogether - thank you for being so supportive of our registration process, which is after all quite tedious. I appreciate it so much".

The registration period is live until midnight on March 14.

You can register in the following ways:

By going online at: http://www.glastonburyregistration.co.uk

By collecting a registration form: From branches of Millets nationwide.
Shop locator is available here at www.millets.co.uk.

People picking up forms from Millets will be entered into a prize draw to win a pair of the highly sought-after Glasto tickets.

Neil Diamond is the first artist to be confirmed to play on the Pyramid stage. The legendary American songwriter will play the Sunday evening slot, which Dame Shirley Bassey occupied last year.

As is customary, the full line-up will only be announced after tickets to the music bash have sold-out.

This year's festival takes place June 27-29.

Very taken with Africa Express' version of "In C", by Terry Riley, this week. I have a few takes on the piece (50 years old this month, incidentally), the latest being one by Portishead's Adrian Utley from a couple of years back, though I still probably default to what I think is the original...
