Glastonbury Festival extends registration deadline

The deadline to register for tickets for the 2008 Glastonbury Festival has been pushed back.

Fans will now have until 14 March to register after the the window opens on 1 February. The deadline was previously the last day of February.

It is believed organisers, including boss Michael Eavis, want to give as many people a chance to register as the festival seeks to attract back younger fans.

Fans will have to register their details before tickets go on sale on Sunday 6 April, a repeat of last year's move to stop touts getting their hands on tickets.

They will be able to do so on the official Glastonbury Festival website or via forms available from camping shop Millets.

Glastonbury Festival takes place at Worthy Farm, Somerset, from 27-29 June. Jay Z, R.E.M, Kanye West, Dolly Parton, Muse, Kylie and Led Zeppelin are among those rumoured to be playing over the weekend.
