Glastonbury Co-Organizer Comments On Price Increase For 2023

Glastonbury increased its ticket price for 2023, and here’s why. Event co-organizer Emily Eavis took to Twitter to release the news. Tickets will cost £335 plus a £5 booking fee. That is a £55 increase from last year when it cost £280 after inflation and event cancellation. I think we can all agree we are feeling the effects of the post-pandemic and inflation. Glastonbury is set to take place from June 21st-25th, 2023. No official lineup is announced yet so stay tuned.

“I wanted to post about the 2023 Glastonbury ticket price which was announced today. We have tried very hard to minimise the increase in price on the ticket but we’re facing enormous rises in the costs of running this vast show, while still recovering from the huge financial impact of two years without a festival because of COVID.”

So, the £50 deposit remains the same on ticket sales day in November. You won’t have to pay the balance until April. Plus, the event is still taking on thousands of volunteers as part of the incredible crew.

This year’s edition recently took place in June at Worth Farm in the UK. It drew in 200,000 people but half of the trains canceled due to train strikes. However, despite that, headliners included Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar, Lorde, Paul McCartney, Ziggy Marley, and more. It saw empowering sets and emotionally charged energies as it happened after the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision. For the events that make us happy, we’re happy to support but things are definitely getting to a point of no return.

“In these incredibly challenging times, we want to continue to bring you the best show in the world and provide our charities with funds which are more vital than ever. We are, as always, hugely appreciative of your ongoing support.”
