However, since the massively popular and massively populated arts fest of music, food, wild times and smiling faces is having a year off (the Somerset dairy cows need a bit of me time), the organisers have taken the opportunity to open the registration gates for the 2013 event.

Tickets will go on sale on October 7, 2012 – but keen hippies, hipsters, indie kids, crusties, nudists, mud worshippers and raving party monsters will need to be registered with the official site, including an approved photograph. Nothing too weird, okay?

Click here to register, and see you there next year….

Glastonbury 2013 begins on Wednesday 26 June.
