Glasto is Go! But tickets ain't just yet...
We've heard warnings from the officials at Glastonbury that fake tickets are circulating. Tickets are not officially on sale until March 31st for this summer’s event, which is taking place from June 27,28 and 29.
Someone, somewhere, is making a killing as the ticket price has risen to £105 plus a booking/handling fee. Apparently this rise is to help pay for the extra security measures (i.e. the "super fence") which organisers have promised to the local council.
However, don't get too worried if you have bought tickets, they may be fine and kosher, just some websites are selling tickets which have not been "sanctioned" by Eavis and his friends at Mean Fiddler. More Info.
