Glastonbury 2004 Ticket Security High
Festival organizers determined to stamp out unauthorized reselling.
Glastonbury festival organizers have revealed ticketing details for this year's event, with a determined attempt to stamp out unauthorized reselling by customizing each ticket sold.

Tickets will go on sale at 8pm on Thursday, April 1, costing £112 each plus booking fee and P&P and will be limited to two per person.

With many genuine fans unable to attend last year, after ticket prices went through the roof and being offered on Ebay for up to four times their value, festival organiser Michael Eavis says each transaction will be "vigilantly monitored" to make sure ticket touts are unable to purchase bulk quantities of tickets - with each ticket personalized with the buyers name and proper checks carried out at the entrance gates to the festival.

"Last year tickets sold very quickly and as a result we had a huge problem with tickets being offered all over the place at three or four times their face value." Eavis said in a statement.

"Some of these tickets were traced back to outlets that we supplied but had no effective control over. The measures we are taking this year will result in a much fairer way to access the Festival which promises to be, as always, an incredibly joyful way to spend your mid-summer!"

This year tickets will sold only through the telephone ticketline on 0870 830 2004, and through the ticket website.

Glastonbury 2004 takes place from June 25-27, with headline rumours indicating appearances by Prince, Oasis and The Cure.
