Speaking on Glastonburyfestivals.co.uk, Eavis defends a £10 price rise to £185 for tickets to next year’s event, saying: “I do try and hold it down, but the girls doing the budgeting are so thorough and so clever, and they said: ‘Look, the minimum rise we can get away with is 10 quid more’. It is a shame, because I really wanted to hold the price.”
As with this year, fans will be able to purchase tickets by paying £50 deposits to hold their place, paying the full amount next February.
Eavis also says that he’s already talking to potential bands to play the festival’s 40th annniversary event, saying: “Some of the artists out there are particularly interested in the fact that it’s 40 years.”
This year’s Glastonbury Festival was headlined by Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young and Blur.
