Organisers have announced plans for a small increase in ticket prices for Glastonbury festival when it returns next year.

Tickets for 2013's event will cost £205, plus a £5 booking fee on each pass and a £6 postage fee per order.

It marks a small increase from Glastonbury 2011 where tickets were £195 plus £5 booking fee.

Tickets for next year's event at Somerset's Worthy Farm go on sale at 9am on Sunday 7 October.

It will also see the return of the deposit scheme which the festival first used in 2011.

Fans will pay an initial £50 deposit and the rest at a later date.

They will use the same ticket registration system used in recent years where fans will need to input their details along with a photo before the deadline at 5pm on 30 September.

Car-park tickets, available in spring 2013, will cost £25.

The Somerset festival takes place between Wednesday 26 June and Monday 1 July 2013.

There was no event this year as the site in Somerset took a break.

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