Emily Eavis provides update on Glastonbury Festival re-sale ticket allocation
Glastonbury Festival co-organiser Emily Eavis has provided an update on the forthcoming release of the re-sale tickets.
With the event selling out in typically rapid time, Eavis has confirmed that it will again be slim pickings when the re-sale takes place this weekend, April 28th.
A small selection of tickets paired with coach travel will be listed April 25th but it will again be difficult to land some. Speaking to BBC Radio 2, Eavis said: “Obviously, it has been a bit of a scramble and that often happens after a year off.
“We haven’t got loads to sell, so I think we should probably let people know that now, but it’s always really worth a go. We don’t want to put people off.”
In more Glastonbury related news, the Met Office has given out a warning of a heatwave for the 2019 event which would come as welcome news to those ticket holders with memories of soggy years gone by.
The Met Office’s Alex Deakin said: “The longer range, three month outlook is suggesting that higher pressure is more likely than lower pressure, and higher temperatures are more likely than lower temperatures.
“A trend towards some finer weather as we go into early summer, but of course, any individual spell of hot weather can’t be forecast at that kind of range. The trend does look dryer than average.”
Accuweather is offering another, cooler, forecast suggesting the festival will remain in the low twenties temperature-wise. However, it did offer one particularly welcomed refrain that it’s predicting a dry festival. Glastonbury is famous for struggling when it’s raining. So let’s keep our fingers crossed for sunny weather.
