Glastonbury 2013 festival tickets go on sale in October


Glastonbury Festival sign

Tickets for next year's Glastonbury Festival are to go on sale at 9am on Sunday 7 October.

There is no event this year as the site in Somerset takes a break.

Festival-goers will have to register to buy tickets in a bid to tackle ticket touting.

No headliners have been announced for the 2013 festival although organiser Michael Eavis told Newsbeat earlier this year that they had already been "chosen".

The 76-year-old revealed the news as he picked up a lifetime achievement award at the European festival awards in Groningen, Holland, in January.

The registration process for next year remains the same.

Music fans will have to fill in their personal details and upload a photograph although if you have already registered, your details will be saved online.

The 2011 festival was headlined by U2, Coldplay and Beyonce.

Next year's Glastonbury starts at Worthy Farm on Wednesday 26 June.

Ticket prices will be revealed over the next few months.
