The Ultimate Guide to Glastonbury Festival 2019
How to register, when to buy tickets, who's performing, top tips and EVERYTHING else we know about the festival so far...
Glastonbury Festival, after this year's hiatus, will be returning to Worthy Farm in 2019, and it's safe to say we're all incredibly excited. Beginning in 1970, the festival has become one of the most iconic music festivals in the entire world - and in having such a status it has become increasingly tricky to attend.
So we've made a handy guide to Glastonbury 2019 to make your life easier. From registration and buying tickets, to general advice and lineup updates & speculation - we've got it all.
HOW TO GET GLASTONBURY 2019 TICKETS
Getting tickets to Glastonbury Festival 2019 isn't the most straightforward process. It's all for good reason, to stop touting, but compared to a few hundred hippies turning up to a field and paying £1 in 1970, it's become a little more complex...
What's this registration business and how do I sign up?
If you're thinking of attending Glastonbury 2019, you need to register NOW in order to then be able to buy tickets. You can register now, right HERE. The deadline for registering is the 1st October 2018 at noon.
DO NOT FORGET TO REGISTER, or else you won't be able to buy a ticket. Seriously, go do it now it takes no time at all.
Photo ID for Registration?
That's right - and it needs to have been taken within the last two years. The festival organisers are urging people who have been in the past to update their photo to a more recent one, to avoid causing problems upon entry.
Overall, it's all in efforts to reduce the overpriced reselling of tickets, so all in all worth the effort.

GLASTO NEWCOMER FESTIVAL ADVICE
For total newcomers to Glastonbury Fest, you may have plenty of questions and it may be wise to get to know the best festival in the world before arriving - so here's some advice:
Don't get caught up trying to catch EVERYTHING on your 'Must-not-miss' list. You WILL miss things, but you WILL bump into even better experiences.
Explore. Arrive on Wednesday or early Thursday so that you can wander aimlessly. Go to all kinds of music, stages, events, talks - anything and everything.
You can camp anywhere. Unlike a lot of other UK festivals, there are no divides between camping and stages, so you're free to make whichever area of the giant site.
The festival site truly is huge. It's the largest greenfield festival in the world. THIS website compares the festival site size to major UK cities. Yeah, it's huge.
Surprises and unexpected finds are the best bits. There's so many things to see, so many things to do - go wander.
Wellies. We could do a whole article on Glasto's mud - it's something else. Bring Wellies. Don't say we didn't warn you.
GLASTONBURY LINEUP SO FAR
- Kylie Minogue. It looks highly likely that Australian pop superstar and legend, will be taking the 'legends' headline slot on the Pyramid stage in 2019. She had to pull out of the festival in 2005 due to her battle with breast cancer.
The rest, for now, is all completely rumours. Which, by the way, there are a LOT of.
There have been hints from the creator of the festival, Micheal Eavis, that a number of headliners this year will be first timers - but we're open to any guesses. Sir Paul McCartney? Kendrick Lamar? Elton John? Stormzy? Your guess is as good as ours.
That's pretty much all you need to know for now, just REMEMBER: Registration for Glastonbury 2019 closes on the 1st October at noon. Don't miss it.
In the meantime - check out our Top 40 playlist (It might help with guessing which other acts might be joining the lineup!)
