For music lovers all over the world, it's already time to think about festival season because 2024 Glastonbury tickets go on sale this weekend. At 9am GMT on Sunday November 19, the See Tickets servers open for Glastonbury 2024 ticket sales and you'd better steel yourself for 20 minutes of pure stress as the tickets fly off the shelves at breakneck speed. If you don't want to be the one left staring at the terrible 'all tickets are now sold out' message, then here are some killer tips on how to get a Glastonbury ticket and improve your chances.

The Coach + Ticket sales opened up on Thursday and, of course, sold out within 30 minutes, so expect something similar on Sunday for the general sale.

Getting a Glastonbury ticket is always a seriously tough gig but the good news is that technology is here to help, if you know which to use.

From exploiting the power of the best VPN services to buddying up with friends to increase your chances, below are the top tips to successfully land your next Glastonbury ticket, and, if you can't get any, you can always watch Glastonbury 2024 on TV for free

Use a VPN to change your country

Rumors are spreading about the possibility that there could be a certain amount of tickets allotted to different countries. If that's the case, changing your location with a VPN could help you tap into a less competitive pool of buyers.

That's because a VPN is a tool that can mask your real location, making you appear to be in any country in the world with just a couple of clicks. All the top services boast a huge array of international servers dotted across the world you can connect to – USA, Australia, Canada, Papua New Guinea, wherever you like. Give it a whirl!

Use a VPN on all your devices to vary IPs

You can open as many browsers and tabs on all the devices you like but, if they're all connected to your home internet, then it will be clear to the Glastonbury website servers that it's just you, and they're all coming from one place. That's because they will all have the same IP address.

Instead, increase your chances of getting Glastonbury tickets for 2024 by using all your devices and using a VPN on all of them, to mix up IP addresses. This may make it appear that you're more than one person.

For even better results, try to connect each device to totally different server locations. One of our favorites, NordVPN, has over 5,600 to choose from. That's a lot of tickets to the Glastonbury lottery!

If you want to get really advanced, you could using a dedicated IP address to use alongside your regular home one. Nord VPN comes with the option to pick up a dedicated IP. That way, you've got your home IP address, a host of server IP addresses through your VPN and what is essentially your own bespoke extra IP address too. That's a lot of bases covered.

Club together with your friends

If you've got mates who are going, all of you should be having a bash at getting tickets at the same time. If one gets in, buy tickets for everyone and then get paid back.

One person can buy up to six Glastonbury tickets at the same time. Even more if everyone in your group tries his luck from multiple devices simultaneously, and, ideally with different IPs too.

Try using 5G instead of Wi-Fi

Bit of a mystery but many people online swear that your chances can increase simply by using 4G or 5G instead of Wi-Fi. That's mainly to avoid crowded networks like the one in your workplace, or any other public Wi-Fi, giving you more capacity on a given connection to the web.

A stronger connection is a key here, too. Beating the queue is one thing but you need to be fast to move quickly from page to page to make sure to get your Glastonbury tickets before they run out.

Which VPN do we recommend for getting Glastonbury tickets?
