Glastonbury delays ticket sales after fans report registration problems | Ents & Arts News

Glastonbury ticket sales have been delayed by two weeks after some music fans reported issues with their registration, organisers have said.

The official announcement came just hours before the first batch of tickets for the 2024 festival were due to go on sale at 6pm today for the coach package.

The general admission tickets were expected to go live on Sunday morning.

Tickets will now be available to buy on Thursday 16 November for tickets plus coach and on Sunday 19 November for general admission.

A Glastonbury statement said the postponement was to ensure “everyone who would like to buy a ticket is registered and therefore eligible to purchase one”.

It said some people hoping to buy tickets for next year’s event have found out after Monday’s registration deadline that “they are no longer registered, despite believing they were”.

“Out of fairness to those individuals, we will be re-opening the window for registration at 12 noon on Monday 6 November. It will remain open until 5pm on Monday 13 November.”

Glastonbury apologised for the late change.

The festival says registration is essential to prevent touting as each ticket has the photograph of the registered ticket holder with security checks in place before entering.

Tickets are non-transferable.

Standard tickets for the festival held at Worthy Farm in Somerset cost £355 (plus a £5 booking fee), £20 more than this year’s event.

An additional fee will be added for the coach transfer.

Next year’s music spectacle will run from 26-30 June, though the line-up is yet to be announced.

This year, the world-famous Pyramid Stage welcomed rock bands Arctic Monkeys and Guns N’ Roses, with Sir Elton John headlining the final day.

Other famous names included Royal Blood, Lil Nas X, Queens of the Stone Age, Lana Del Rey and Fatboy Slim.

Lloyds Bank issues ticket scam warning to football fans after jump in reported incidents last season | UK News

Football fans are being warned to watch out for ticket scams, after it recorded a jump in reported incidents last season.

Lloyds Bank said, based on analysis of reported fraud cases among its own personal banking customers, the number of people being scammed when buying football tickets more than doubled (a 101% increase) last season compared with the season before, with victims losing £154 on average.

The bank’s data indicated that many scams originate on social media and people aged 18 to 24 are particularly likely to fall victim.

It also indicated that supporters of Liverpool and Manchester United fell victim most often last season, along with Arsenal and Chelsea fans.

When tickets for big events are scarce or in high demand, fraudsters know they can cash in on desperate fans willing to pay much more.

They create fake posts on social media or online marketplaces to advertise tickets that do not exist. Often they will include pictures of real tickets to convince the buyer that they are genuine.

The victim is often tricked into sending money via bank transfer.

The bank looked at reports made by Lloyds Banking Group customers between August 2022 and May 2023, compared with the same period a year earlier.

Once the money has been transferred, the fraudster simply disappears, and the victim receives nothing.

Liz Ziegler, fraud prevention director, Lloyds Bank, said people should look to buy directly from football clubs or their official ticket partners.

UK ticket wins £110m EuroMillions jackpot | UK News

A UK ticketholder has won Friday’s £110m EuroMillions jackpot, Camelot says.

The winning numbers were 07, 12, 13, 20 and 45 – while the Lucky Stars were 03 and 12.

Andy Carter, Camelot’s senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, said: “Players are urged to check their tickets and to give us a call if they think they are tonight’s lucky winner.

“Thanks to National Lottery players, more than £30m is generated every week for good causes across the country.

“This supports everything from local projects making a difference where you live, to our nations’ athletes at the recent Commonwealth Games.”

Only 15 UK players have ever won a jackpot of more than £100m, with the record-holder winning £195m in July.

Joe Thwaite, 49, and Jess Thwaite, 46, from Gloucestershire celebrate after winning the record-breaking EuroMillions jackpot of £184M from the draw on Tuesday 10 May, 2022, at the Ellenborough Park Hotel, in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Picture date: Thursday May 19, 2022.

They spoke to reporters about the shock and disbelief they felt when they found out they had won what was then Britain’s biggest lottery win.
