The Beginner's Must-Read Guide To GlastonburyGlastonbury Festival is one of the world's most exciting events, which spans 5 days, filled with the best live music from across the globe.

In addition to good music, the Glastonbury festival brings together lovers of the circus, poetry, theater, art, and anything you could think of that excites the mind. If you're headed to this festival for the first time, you might be overwhelmed by the site's extensive nature and the procedures required before entering the festival. We put together this guide for the first-timer, showing you how to get the most out of your festival experience.

1.How to get a festival ticket

Research undertaken by Betway revealed that the planning of the Glastonbury festival takes an entire year. With such an amount of attention to detail, it is understandable that tickets for the event are expensive, limited and sell like hotcakes. There are two major ways to get to the festival: buying a ticket or working.

Festival tickets are usually sold in October to people who have already registered their names in advance. Sales are rigid and occur only on the festival's online platform, which receives many visitors simultaneously, preventing the page from loading most of the time. Once you can gain access to the site and already have your credentials inputted, you need to pay a deposit of 50 pounds, ensuring that you complete the payment before the first week in April.

2.Working in the festival

If you don't have the resources to purchase a ticket, you can opt for the work route to gain entry. You can offer your services as a volunteer or a paid worker. The Glastonbury festival volunteers play a huge role in the festival's success. Thus, once you sign up, you should be prepared to work. For those looking for paid jobs, you must ensure you attend all set shifts and deliver the best service possible during the festival.

3.Getting to Glastonbury.

Getting to Glastonbury should be tough, especially when using public transport. Several companies offer extra buses and trains for the festival. Carpooling is another great choice, especially considering our environment and the need to reduce our carbon footprint.

One of the fastest ways to the festival is via coach, and the most efficient is via train.

Cars are also a great option, even though you'll need to park them at a distance and walk to the festival grounds. Parking for your vehicle typically costs 45 to 50 pounds for the entire festival duration.

4.Camping at the festival.

All campsites at the Glastonbury festival are connected to the different stages on the site and the entertainment areas. All camping areas have been restricted throughout the large, sprawling festival, so you can move your 'temporary' home around where you like. Usually, the best camping areas fill up fairly quickly, meaning you'll need to consider several things before the day of the festival like the best time to arrive, which gate to arrive by, whether you want peace or parties close to your camp and how far away you're willing to park. Avoid the bottom of hills, footpaths, and toilet routes when choosing your campsite for obvious reasons.

At the Glastonbury festival, you might not need to move from one stage to the other, but you're bound to see a lot of interesting, crazy, and equally entertaining occurrences. Explore as much as possible, searching for gems besides the main stages, and you'll be surprised at what you find. Being a first-timer is a memorable experience, and with Glastonbury, you rest assured of having the most fun in your life!
