Here's how to enter 6 Music's Glastonbury Festival competition

We have a pair of Glastonbury tickets to giveaway and two listeners will be going head to head in a festival quiz on-air to be in with a chance of taking them home.

So if you think you know everything about Worthy Farm and the acts that have graced its land, here's how you can enter.

  • The competition will run from 7am on 3 June to 7pm on 5 June.

  • You can only register by texting the word GLASTO to 64046. Your text must start with the word GLASTO and you must be over 18 to enter.

  • Two entrants will then be selected to play an on-air head to head quiz relating to the festival after 9:30 am on 7 June. The winner will be the on-air entrant who answers the most questions correctly.

Texts will be charged at your standard message rate. You may only register once. Any additional entries will not count but you will be charged. No other method of entry will be accepted.
