prepare and prepare
Preparation is key. Before publishing your work, make sure you are registered and approved by the festival. You may not be able to purchase tickets without this confirmation.
Mark your calendar with the exact date and time tickets will be available for purchase. And if you're really nervous, consider setting an alarm 10 minutes before tickets go on sale to give yourself time to prepare.
Decide in advance which tickets you want to buy and agree with your friends which tickets to buy. That way, you won't waste time in the payment process. Ensure accurate data entry; if you don't, it can lead to (expensive) complications.
The last thing you want when booking festival tickets is for your internet connection to drop in the middle of payment, as this could result in you losing your progress and getting a refund at the end of the payment.
Before starting the purchase process, check the speed of your internet connection. If your Internet is not working properly, you can contact your ISP to see if there is a problem.
If your current broadband contract has expired or is about to expire, it's worth comparing what reliable broadband packages are currently available. If you are using your mobile phone to shop, consider the Wi-Fi network signal if you are unsure.
If you're logged in and ready to go, don't refresh the page, as this may waste your queue space. The entry view will automatically update when you select entries. Also, do not open more than one tab for the same ticket seller, as this may cause the ticketing system to consider you a "bot" and therefore prevent you from entering the site and purchasing tickets.
never give up
Ticket sellers will be busy as soon as tickets are sold and heavy website traffic can sometimes cause web issues and page crashes.
Although the ticketing area may appear to be sold out, this is not always the case. Sometimes high site traffic can lead to false card availability.
If this happens, be sure to check and look for tickets in the next few hours. Additional tickets may be available and may be available for purchase.
Don't fall victim to scammers
Apart from See Tickets, no other website or agency offers Glastonbury tickets, so be careful when buying from another seller.
All festival tickets are personalized to the designated ticket holder and are completely non-transferable to stop scalpers. On arrival there will be a security check and only the holder of the indicated ticket will enter the festival.
If tickets are sold out when they go on sale, any cancellations will only be possible for resale through the festival's authorized ticket agency at face value.
