Glastonbury Tickets 2024: Tips, Tricks, and Availability - What is best Bed and Breakfasts vs. Camping: Pros and Cons

The iconic Glastonbury Festival is a celebrated event that brings music lovers from all corners of the globe to the picturesque Somerset countryside on the 26th-30th June 2024. With its rich history, legendary performances, and a unique blend of art, music, and culture, Glastonbury is undoubtedly a festival that tops many bucket lists. This is your sign to go this year In this blog post, we will explore the questions on every festival-goer's mind "How hard is it to get Glastonbury tickets?" And, we'll discuss why choosing a bed and breakfast over camping is the way to go for Glastonbury 2024.


How Hard Is It to Get Glastonbury Tickets?

Securing tickets to Glastonbury can be quite the challenge. With a limited number of tickets available and high demand, they tend to sell out in a matter of minutes. However, with a bit of patience and strategy, it's not impossible to get your hands on these coveted passes. Here are some tips to increase your chances:


a. Register in Advance: To be eligible to purchase Glastonbury tickets, you need to register on the official Glastonbury website before the registration deadline.

b. Be Ready for Ticket Sales: Once you're registered, keep an eye out for ticket sale announcements. Have your payment details, address, and registration information ready.



c. Team Up: Many successful ticket hunters form "ticket groups" where one person purchases tickets for the entire group. This can increase your chances if one member manages to get through the ticketing process.


d. Be Persistent: Tickets are in high demand, and it's common to face website crashes and queues. Stay patient and keep trying if you encounter difficulties.


Why Choose a Bed and Breakfast Over Camping?

When you've secured your Glastonbury tickets, the next decision is where to stay during the festival. While camping might seem like the traditional choice, there are compelling reasons to consider a bed and breakfast instead:


a. Comfort and Convenience: Bed and breakfast accommodations offer comfortable beds, private bathrooms, and often a hearty breakfast to fuel your festival days. This is a stark contrast to camping, which can mean uncomfortable sleep and shared facilities.


b. Weather Protection: The British weather can be unpredictable. Staying in a B&B means you won't have to worry about soggy tents and muddy grounds if the heavens open.


c. Cleanliness and Hygiene: With a bed and breakfast, you can count on clean facilities, regular housekeeping, and the comfort of a warm shower after a long day of festival fun.


d. Relaxation and Privacy: After a day of dancing and revelry, returning to a peaceful and private space can be invaluable. Bed and breakfasts provide a haven of relaxation.
