You've been up early, furiously refreshing the website, card details at the ready...but, thanks to either technical glitches or your own slowness, you've missed out on tickets to Glastonbury 2017.

Sadly, many of those who don't make it to next year's festival will have to wait until 2019 for their chance to attend: the event will be taking a fallow year in 2018.

The good news? If you're lucky, you might still be able to get your hands on a ticket to next summer's festival. Here's how:

There will be a resale in April

Anyone who bought a ticket today will have paid a deposit of £50 ($87NZ) , and will pay the rest of the price next year. But those who change their minds about going, or find themselves unable to attend, will have the opportunity to notify Glastonbury and get some of their £50 ($87NZ) refunded (minus a £20 ($34.79NZ) admin fee).

The festival organisers will then put these cancelled tickets on sale in April. The exact date is yet to be confirmed.

People who registered to buy tickets will automatically be eligible for these resale tickets, which will have to be paid for in full (£238 ($414.01NZ) , plus a £5 booking fee).

You can also register now for the opportunity to buy resale tickets. Visit glastonburyfestivals.co.uk for more information.

What about ticket touts?

After fake tickets scams in the past, Glastonbury has cracked down on ticket touts - meaning that the official resale is probably still your best bet.

There's only one website to head to, and that's glastonbury.seetickets.com. Seasoned ticket-buyers will advise you to have several browsers up on as many devices as possible.

You can buy up to six tickets with each transaction, whether you're buying the coach and ticket package or just the ticket alone.

You can volunteer with Festaff

Fancy going to Glastonbury (and other festivals) for just £35($60.60NZ)?

If you're prepared to break up your weekend of fun with a few work shifts (think bar work, litter picking, wristbanding and stewarding) then you can register on the Festaff website now to be kept updated about volunteering opportunities next year (as well as Glastonbury, the events they cover include Bestival, Download, Wireless and V Festival).

You can try to get work as an Oxfam steward

Applications to volunteer for Oxfam for festivals in 2017 are already closed, but it's worth registering your details on their website anyway, in case of cancellations or unexpected vacancies.

The work involves representing the charity at the festival, and working alongside staff and security teams to ensure that festival-goers are safe, and informed. You'll need to be over 18 to work as a steward.
