Glastonbury 2024 offering tickets to help people affected by conflict

Glastonbury is giving away free tickets to this year’s festival to support people affected by conflict – find all the details below.

Fans can be in with a chance of winning one of 20 pairs of tickets by entering a prize draw via Crowdfunder.

“Money raised will be donated to the British Red Cross, Oxfam and War Child who are working in areas of conflict delivering humanitarian support to those who need it most,” the page reads.

The prize draw is open to UK residents until 12 noon (GMT) on Thursday, March 28. One entry costs £10, and you may enter multiple times. At the time of writing, the Crowdfunder has raised £43,740 of its £100,000 target.

Check out the announcement post below.

Last December, it was revealed that Glastonbury Festival donated a record-breaking £3.7million to good causes in 2023. “It is thanks to your support for the Festival that this has been possible,” wrote co-organiser Emily Eavis.

Each year, the legendary Worthy Farm event raises money for Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid – its joint charity partners – as well as numerous other organisations and campaigns.

Glastonbury 2024 is scheduled to take place between June 26-30. The first two batches of tickets went on sale last November, but have now sold out. A resale is expected to be held in April – find out how to buy tickets here.

Back in November, it was reported that Madonna, Dua Lipa and Coldplay would be topping the bill this summer. Emily Eavis, however, later said the rumours about the confirmed headliners were “untrue”.

Eavis had previously revealed that the Legends Slot on Sunday afternoon would be occupied by a female artist in 2024, with recent rumours for that set including Stevie Nicks and Shania Twain.

Additionally, Eavis hinted once again that there could be two female headliners closing the Pyramid Stage.

“Last week I got a call from a really big American artist saying this person’s around next year,” she explained. “And I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is incredible’. Thank God we held the slot.”
