Safety in numbers
When applying for tickets, you should be able to enter the details up to five other people. This number reduces to four in the resale for general tickets and just two if you are applying for coach tickets.
Even if you do not plan on camping with as many as five other people, you can always apply with them, if only to boost your – and their own – chances of getting a ticket.
If you are planning to apply as part of a bigger group, organise a spreadsheet with everyone’s important details, such as their names, postcodes and registration numbers to make sure everything is in one place for when you need to refer to it.
Bookmark See Tickets
As the official ticketing partner of Glastonbury Festival, tickets are only available to purchase via See Tickets.
Avoid any panic by bookmarking the Glastonbury ticket page so that you can click on it instantly when you start a new browsing session.
Copy and paste important details
To buy tickets, all you need is the full name of each applicant, as well as their Glastonbury registration number and postcode.
To swerve clear of any typos that could have disastrous consequences further down the line, it is a good idea to copy and paste essential details so that they are completely correct.
It is also a good idea to set up a group chat specifically for the ticket purchasing process to communicate during the sale.
This should help to ensure that nobody in your party is using two sets of details to apply at once.

Ensure your card details are correct and up-to-date
Should you make it through the dreaded ticket queue, you will become the lead booker for your party and need your card details.
With that in mind, store your card details if you are using a personal computer that nobody else has open access to.
This will see you avoid being frozen out of the system for a wrong card number or typo, which can see you frozen out of the system for up to 10 minutes, which is precious time when you are in a rush to get to Glastonbury!
Use multiple devices
Although Glastonbury has said in the past that ‘running multiple devices simultaneously to attempt to access the website is a waste of valuable resources, and doesn’t reflect the ethos of the Festival’, there has been no such evidence to prove that the ploy will fail.
If you can, using your work computer outside of office hours is also likely to give you higher internet speeds.
Try and borrow devices belonging to friends and family if you can, as any extra boost in your quest for Glastonbury tickets will help.
Refresh at the right time
If you manage to get through to a page where a message flashes up reading ‘you’re currently in a queue, this page will keep refreshing automatically’ then you do not need to refresh your browser.
However, prior to that, it is advisable to refresh as often as possible.
In this scenario, a ‘hard refresh’ on your browser, which clears cookies and gives you the latest version of the page is a handy trick to unleash.

Use different browsers instead of multiple tabs
While it may be tempting to open as many browsers as possible – in the belief that this will increase your chances of a ticket – it could do the opposite and lead to booking clashes.
The Glastonbury website says: ‘Attempting to book tickets online using multiple browser tabs can confuse the ticket sales process and cause your transaction to fail.
‘We strongly advise that you use just one browser tab when trying to book tickets, in order to avoid possible problems with your transaction.’
However, if you use different browsers, such as Chrome, Edge or Safari, you may find that one is faster than the other, helping you get through the queue quicker than your fellow Glastonbury hopefuls.
Take advantage of the back space button on the booking page
If you do succeed in getting through to the booking page on the, be extremely cautious with your next move.
Due to demand, the booking page has been known to freeze or ‘hang’ in the past.
If this happens to you, all hope is not lost. All Glastonbury advises you to do is ‘try pressing back once and then continue your booking from that point.’
