If you weren’t lucky enough to get a Glastonbury ticket second time around, don’t fret.
Music lovers were given a second chance this morning, when the resale tickets were up for grabs, but thousands have still been left disappointed.
If this is you, we’ve come up with three ways that can get you into the festival without a standard ticket.
What’s the catch, we hear you cry. Well, be prepared to roll up your sleeves and work for it – but also know that you’ll probably change at least one person’s life in the process.
Festival Jobs With Oxfam
Glastonbury is a huge supporter of Oxfam and all the great work it does. As a result, you can bag yourself entry to the festival while also helping the poorest people in the world. Win win. Oxfam have jobs going for stewards, campaigners and work in the festival shop. More information: www.oxfam.org.uk
Calling All Medics
If you have medical qualifications, then Glastonbury needs you. Festival Medical Services recruits everyone from first aiders to fully qualified doctors and pharmacists, not to mention administrators and hospital porters, for work at Glastonbury and other festivals.

Be A Good Samaritan
Have you ever considered volunteering for the Samaritans? The charity provides a 24-hour face-to-face, non-judgemental listening service at up to 18 festivals throughout the year, including Glastonbury, and it is always on the look out for new volunteers.

This year’s Glastonbury runs from 21-25 June 2017 and the headliners are Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighter and Katy Perry.
