Glastonbury locals can now apply for Glastonbury Festival tickets for Sunday 30 June.

Those wanting a festival ticket for the Sunday festival date will have to fill in a new application form regardless of whether they have previously applied.

Details and application forms are available by e-mailing office@glastonburyfestivals.co.uk, calling 01458 834596 or you can drop into the Glastonbury Festival Office.

The tickets cost £80 and included in the price is travel to the festival site by bus – this means applicants must specify which stop they would like to be picked up and dropped off from.

Children aged 6-12 are admitted into the festival for free but must book a seat on the bus at a cost of £10.

Bus stops available for purchasers to choose from are Castle Cary, Cheddar, Frome, Radstock, Glastonbury, Midsomer Norton, Shepton Mallet, Street and Wells.

Successful applicants will have their names drawn out of a hat which means the tickets will not be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

The closing date for applications is 30 January 2013.

Please note, this is just the application for Sunday festival tickets. Full festival local residents' tickets will be advertised in March 2013.

The purchase of the ticket for the event on Sunday, June 30, includes travel to the festival site by bus, so applicants must specify which stop they would like to be picked up and dropped off from.

    Good tip - thanks! £40 quid on a pair of binoculars is half the price of a Sunday ticket, and I won't have to get covered in mud either. Wot a bargin!

    No I'm pretty sure locals receive the tickets in the post like everyone else who has applied, I'll double check it though if you like. Haha yeah you could invest in some pretty high power binoculars for £40... That and the step-ladder should see you through the Festival quite comfortably!

    Ah ok, thanks - I thought perhaps you had to collect tickets on the bus - having said that £80 is a bit steep unless the Stones are Rolling in! Might just drag out my stepladder again!

    Yes I'm pretty sure you can walk to the festival if you want - the travel is simply included in the ticket price :)

    I thought the festival was in Glastonbury - can't I just walk there?
