Securing Glastonbury tickets is an adventure in itself, so there is always high demand. Sadly, though, the tickets for this year’s edition are already sold out according to a Variety report. However, a raffle offering 20 pairs of tickets aims to generate emergency funds to aid individuals impacted by conflict.

A legacy of music and transformation

Glastonbury’s roots lie in the counterculture movement of the 1970s. Inspired by the ethos of peace and free expression, the festival transformed from a modest gathering into a global powerhouse. Its stages have hosted paradigm-shifting performances from giants like David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and countless other legendary artistes.
