How to win Glastonbury tickets

No luck in the Glastonbury ticket sale again? That doesn’t mean you don’t get to go next year – there’s always a chance you could win a pair of tickets!

I love Glastonbury Festival, and have been 14 times since my first visit in 1992! I bought tickets for the first few festivals (when they were only around £50 each) and blagged in for free once, but after discovering comping in the late 90s I have managed to win a pair of tickets for all my other visits. I’ve won them from EE, The Big Issue, The Guardian, Yop, Tuborg Lager, The Hut, and multiple times with Q Magazine – and three of these were VIP tickets with backstage camping! In fact, there’s not been a time when I’ve wanted to go to Glastonbury and haven’t won tickets – a few times I’ve even won them for my mates too.

I’m planning to celebrate my own 50th birthday at Glasto in 2024, so I’m eagerly looking out for competitions to win tickets. I’ll list them in this blog post and wish you the best of luck!

At the 2022 Glastonbury festival, I recreated a photograph of me in 1992 taken up at the Stone Circle… sitting in that field looking down at the festival below is one of my favourite places in the world!

My top tip to win Glastonbury tickets is to look out for sponsors running judged competitions – my last two Glastonbury wins were a TikTok duet competition with EE (which had five winners and only around 30 valid entries), and a tiebreaker competition with Tuborg lager where you had to say which bands would be playing your dream Glastonbury (mine had Beastie Boys, Girls Aloud and Duran Duran headlining!).

Even with a prize draw you should try to make your entry stand out. I won two sets of Glastonbury tickets in the 1990s and 2000s by sending my postcard entry off to the magazines with a pair of kids wellies, with a note “I’ve got the wellies – all I need are the tickets!”. Of course there are no postcard draws now for Glasto tickets, but you can still apply the same principle by adding a photo, video or rhyme to your Twitter or Facebook comment. Remember – you should aim to stand out as the ideal prize winner, someone who clearly loves Glastonbury, has put the effort into their entry and will absolutely make the most of those prize tickets! If you have any sort of fun props at home – tent, flags, old programmes, festival hats, rainwear & wellies then a fun Glastonbury themed photo shoot might work in your favour.

Keep an eye on the social feed of all Glastonbury partners for the latest competitions:
Co-op, Vodafone, Oxfam, Tony’s Chocolonely and Chilly’s were all involved with giveaways in 2023, but I didn’t see a judged creative competition, which will give you the best chance of a win as fewer people will take part.

Win Glastonbury tickets with Octopus Energy

Octopus Energy Octoplus customers are invited to nominate a friend to win a pair of Glastonbury tickets, plus an EV with free charging to get you to the festival. You can comment on X or Instagram – or share a post on Instagram as your entry. There are also 12 pairs of tickets to other festivals to be won, so if you specifically want to go to Glasto then be sure to mention that in your entry. Use the hashtag #octoplusone and tag @octopusenergy in your post or comment. Entries will be judged, the 13 very best #OctoPlusOne stories will be independently chosen to win the tickets. I suggest you don’t rush into entering, and read all the details and answers on the website for some ideas on the type of deserving stories the judges will be looking for: “We want the tickets to go to people who truly deserve a break and a boogie under the sun, so we’re looking for the loveliest stories and reasons why someone should win.” I suggest sharing a photo of your nominee will work in your favour. Closing date is 3 May 2024. Find out more on the Octopus website


Win Glastonbury tickets with WaterAid

To enter the competition, design a temporary tattoo championing clean water and decent toilets for everyone, everywhere. A shortlist of designs will be selected by a panel of judges, including Glastonbury Festival’s co-organiser Emily Eavis, with the winning design chosen by public vote. The winner will not only get a pair of tickets, but their design will also be printed and given out to festival-goers at Glastonbury. All the info is on the WaterAid site.

WARNING! I suggest you only enter this competition if you have a lot of time to dedicate to rounding up votes if you are shortlisted – public votes are stressful and controversial for the candidates, and from experience I know that the winner usually gets accused of cheating! Closing date is 7 May 2024.

Vodafone are giving away 5 pairs of tickets on their social media accounts. Comment on the relevant post with the number of emoji you can spot in the image of Glastonbury Festival. T&Cs state you can only enter once – but usernames could be different so it’s not actually possible for Vodafone to confirm you only entered once! I wonder if it means you can only comment once on each platform?

T&Cs are here. You must be age 16+. The closing date is 21 April 2024.

Win Glastonbury tickets with Worthy Farm Cheddar (now closed)

The Worthy Farm Cheddar competition is back again! Buy Worthy Farm Cheddar at the Co-op between 10 and 23 April 2024 and scan your Co-op membership card for a chance to win one of ten pairs of Glastonbury 2024 tickets. Each separate purchase will count as a prize draw entry, so stock up!

Win Glastonbury tickets with Co-op & Brooklyn Pilsner (now closed)

Buy Brooklyn Pilsner at a participating Co-op between 13 March 2024 and 23 April 2024 and scan your Co-op membership card for a chance to win one of six pairs of Glastonbury 2024 tickets. You can enter once a week, and must keep hold of your receipt. This competition is advertised on screens at the tills of participating stores – find out more at https://coop.co.uk/competitions/brooklyn-buy-scan-win. Becoming a Co-op member costs £1 and you can join here. The prizes are non-transferable and must be used by the winner. You must be aged 18+ and a resident of England or Wales to take part.

Note that a scan-to-win promotion only gives you a small chance of winning, because every Co-op member who buys Brooklyn Pils will be entered into the draw, even if they know nothing about the Glasto promotion! It’s much better for promoters to have an ‘opt in’ entry form rather than automatic entry, when it’s a prize that can’t be transferred.


Win Glastonbury tickets with Chilly’s (now closed)

Chilly’s are giving away 6 tickets for Glastonbury on TikTok! Comment on this post before the closing date of 10 April 2024.


Win tickets with the Glastonbury Crowdfunder (now closed)

For every £10 you donate to the fundraiser you’ll get one entry into a prize draw where 20 random winners will be chosen to receive a pair of tickets! Legally, if the promoter is charging a fee for entry (even if it’s a charitable donation) there has to be a ‘free’ entry route, and for this particular draw it’s by sending your full name and a contact telephone number inside a stamped envelope to: Emergency Fund Prize Draw, PO BOX 4288, Shepton Mallet, BA4 9BB. You can send more than one postal entry but they must be in separate stamped envelopes. Closing date is 28 March 2024.


Win tickets on BBC Radio 1 Jan Slam (closed in January)

You’ll need to enter by text or online after 8.15am on Friday 19 January and before 7.45am on Monday 22 January. On Monday morning Radio 1’s competition producers will phone back 10 random entrants for eligibility checks and to ask ‘how much do you want to win this prize?’. Producers will score the entrant’s answer to this question based on their passion for the prize. The two highest scoring callers will be brought to air to compete in a head-to-head quiz. Contestants will be required to give an answer to a question asked by the presenter on-air within a short time window, e.g. within a 5 second timer. Find out more on the Jan Slam website.

Win VIP Glastonbury 2024 tickets with Play Fund Win (now closed)

Play Fund Win is a raffle website which gives a minimum of 50% from ticket sales to charitable and community organisations. They are hosting a fundraiser for Harrogate Hospital & Community Charity (HHCC) with a prize of VIP Glastonbury tickets. Raffle tickets are £5 each and can be purchased online – but you also have the option to enter by post without buying a ticket. You will have to sign up to be a member of the Play Fund Win website to be eligible to win with a postal entry. Send a postcard to PFW Holdings Ltd. c/o WeWork, No.1 Spinningfields, Quay Street, Manchester M3 3JE – using a second class stamp is fine. You should write the name of the draw (HHCC Glastonbury tickets), plus your full name, date of birth, postal address, e-mail address and contact telephone number on the postcard. You can enter multiple times but must use separate stamped postcards and you cannot hand deliver these! The winner will be announced on 31 May 2024, but I can’t see a deadline for ticket purchase. Postcard entries must be in 72 hours after ticket sales close. General T&Cs for Play Fund Win are here.

    Regarding the Co op Worthy Farm contest, with T&C it states that scans with temporary coop card are automatically excluded from prize draw. Does this mean that my temporary card, which I registered this morning to become member, will still be excluded if I buy another pack of Worthy Farm Reserve Cheddar before 23rd April 2024. Not on mobile

    • Di says:

      I would assume when you scan your plastic card for the first time, that’s when you’re officially permanent and no longer a temporary member. You may have left it too late to enter this one, as the card may take a while to be posted to you!

      • Jacquie Simpson says:

        Thanks Di. Won’t stock up on cheese then you have just saved me money!! Card will be useful in future. Am having mad blitz on winning my nieces prizes!

  2. David Ellis says:
