Come Sunday morning on November 19th, people will experience contrasting emotions as general admission tickets for the Glastonbury Festival 2024 hit the market. While the sale will undoubtedly bring joy to some, it will be met with disappointment by countless others.
During the previous year, approximately 2.5 million individuals participated in a competition for 210,000 tickets.
There have not been any confirmed big names for the event yet, but Emily Eavis, who is in charge of organising the event, has suggested that a well-known American musician will be performing.
The Independent has created a useful manual with suggestions and techniques to increase your chances of attaining those highly sought-after tickets. Nevertheless, if you are one of the many who missed out, there are alternative methods to access Glastonbury. And no, we are not referring to illegally crossing the fence.
"Working For Your Pass"
The website of Glastonbury festival has a special page allocated for the employment opportunities that offer festival passes in exchange for work.
Sometimes you may have to buy the ticket in advance and then get your money back after completing the necessary hours.

Each year, numerous groups seek volunteers to participate in the festival in exchange for complimentary admission. Typically, individuals must complete three eight-hour shifts in order to receive a ticket; however, this requirement may vary depending on the group.
Every year, Oxfam manages a crew of 2000 volunteers who attend the festival. Their duties consist of being stewards, advocating, and aiding in operating temporary charity stores located on the festival grounds. Along with getting tickets, volunteers also enjoy sheltered camping, a meal allowance for every shift, access to warm showers and restrooms, coffee and tea, and phone charging.
Festaff also engages a group of unpaid workers at Glastonbury (in addition to various festivals throughout the business).
As per their webpage, the typical job responsibilities at Festaff consist of collaborating with other people who share the same interests and doing pleasant and undemanding jobs, like supervising the camping grounds, checking wristbands and/or scanning tickets as people enter the occasion, serving drinks behind the bar for the public, providing information for camping sites, or other similar roles that involve offering a helping hand.
