The last chance for wannabe revellers to secure their combined coach and ticket packages came when the last few went back on sale from 6pm this evening (April 18).

The re-sale involves tickets that the original purchasers in November did not pay the balance on in full before the cut-off date in early April.

SeeTickets, who manage the sale of Glastonbury tickets, confirmed with a post at 18:18 that all tickets in this sale had now sold out.

All coach tickets for @Glastonbury 2024 are now SOLD OUT. The general admission ticket resale will take place Sunday at 9am (BST).

No more combined coach and weekend ticket packages remain, but those still looking for tickets will have a final chance at 9am on Sunday (April 21), when the re-sale takes place for general admission tickets. Tickets are limited to four per transaction, and you can visit here for more information. That sale will take place via SeeTickets here.

Competition is likely to be high on Sunday, after Glasto co-organiser Emily Eavis revealed that the festival had seen its “highest percentage of ticket balances paid ever”. “Incredible. Thanks so much everyone,” she added.

“There will be a resale of the (very limited) returned tickets later this month. Info to follow on that.”

At the equivalent point last year, the re-sale on general tickets sold out in just six minutes.

Back in November, coach and ticket packages sold out in 25 minutes, with the general ticket sale three days later being snapped up in just under an hour.

Some of those lucky enough to grab their tickets this evening have been sharing their excitement online. Check out some reactions below:

The festival have also begun to unveil the line-ups for individual stages, including the Acoustic Stage, which will be headlined by Scouting For Girls, Ocean Colour Scene and Gipsy Kings.

Those who are looking to volunteer at the festival should note that numerous charities have a presence at the festival and require volunteers across the weekend. In return for your ticket, you’ll be asked to complete shifts across the festival – the length and number of these vary, depending on which charity you attend with. Be warned: you may have to pay a deposit for your ticket, which can be the same price as the entry to the festival. For more information, visit Glastonbury’s jobs page.

Oxfam also put out a call for charity volunteers at Glastonbury 2024, as well as music fans to help out at Reading & Leeds, Download and more.
