In news that will have a lot of festival-goers chomping at the bit, ready to hit refresh on any new tickets, Glastonbury Festival could be getting even bigger in 2020.
Though 2019’s event had a mammoth 203,000 people travel through Somerset to Worthy Farm in Pilton for the event, this year could be even bigger.
Reports are coming in that the council along with the head honchos at Worthy Farm are looking at how to increase the capacity of the legendary festival to 220,000. This year’s event will be the 50th anniversary of the event and is now likely to be the biggest it has ever been.
SomersetLive is reporting that the event organisers are in discussion to create extra camping provisions both on and off the Worthy Farm site.
A public consultation is set to begin in the coming months, with fans hoping the extra allocation will provide some more tickets to be snagged. Glastonbury 2020 had already increased its capacity last year with an additional 7,000 festival-goers being allowed on site.
Unsold, returned and unwanted tickets will go on resale in April after the full line-up has been announced.
