Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis has today (August 21) announced details of how you can buy tickets for next year’s event which takes place from June 24 – 28, 2009.

As previously reported, fans will have the option to buy tickets in advance of the usual April ticket rush, from October 5 this year – either outright or reserve their place with a £50 deposit.

Michael Eavis has sent out the following statement to those who have already registered their details for tickets in previous years: “We have come up with a scheme that will allow people a much longer period to plan and pay for their tickets, while still continuing the battle against ticket touting. By paying as little as £50 up front this year, our registered customers from all over the world will be able to guarantee a ticket for next year’s event. At the same time, the very successful registration scheme will ensure that tickets will only go to those named individuals who have reserved them in advance.”

Anyone who hasn’t registered already will be able to do so from September 1.

Ticket prices will be announced shortly on the festival’s
