Those hoping to go to Glastonbury Festival this year will now be able to buy up to four tickets per transaction, in a move designed to benefit familes and groups and encourage car sharing...

In 2005 in a bid to stamp out touts, organisers ruled that only two tickets would be allocated per person.

However this year, every person who is registered and lucky enough to get through to the phone lines or internet site, will be able to buy up to four tickets.

Michael Eavis said: “Because of the new registration system, and in response to many requests, I am pleased to announce that when tickets go on sale on 1st April, it will be possible to buy up to four tickets in a single transaction.

“Not only will this be more convenient for families and groups, but it should vastly reduce the number of cars coming to the farm.”

A family will now be able to buy up to four tickets for adults, plus up to two for children aged 13, 14 and 15. Children aged 12 and under on June 20 2007 are admitted free if accompanied by a responsible adult. Friends coming in groups can buy up to four tickets per transaction.

Everyone wanting to buy a Glastonbury ticket this year will need to pre-register – online HERE or via post on a form that can be downloaded HERE or or by collecting the form at Millets (who will donate 10p to WaterAid for every form they issue).

You can register any time between now and 29 February. There is no advantage to registering early or late. More info available HERE.

Glastonbury Festival 2007 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from 22-24 June.
