ickets for this year's Glastonbury might have sold out faster than it takes to pitch a tent, but there are still ways to get in, provided you're willing to get your hands dirty, so to speak.

If you weren't lucky enough to get tickets during this morning's re-sale, don't fret - you can actually work for your place at the five-day event in June.

Plenty of tickets are available to people who volunteer, so if you're thinking of getting involved, check out the list below to see all the available options...

Oxfam are currently looking for stewards at key locations across Worthy Farm. 99% of the time you'll just be answering questions from festival-goers around the site, but there's always the 1% chance you could end up saving a life. Open to anybody over 18 when the festival takes place, there are roles on the fire towers, at the gates and by the stages. Head to the Oxfam website to find out more.

Festaff are also looking for volunteers to help with wristbanding. As long as you don't mind working three eight hour shifts, you're free to enjoy yourself at the festival in your free time. Not bad at all.


Are you first aid qualified? Head to the Festival Medical Services website to apply to join Dr Chris Howes' team of volunteers.


Tent stewards and campsite wardens are also recruited from various local organisations, and Glastonbury Festival will provide full training. However, because there's very high demand for these roles, landing one of these jobs is about as tough as getting an actual ticket.


If you're a member of a peace or environmental group, you might be able to apply to work at property lockups at the festival. You should check with your local branch to see if they're getting involved.


Do you already volunteer for a charity? If so, you might be able to work at Glastonbury with them. The Samaritans are just one such organisation with a Festival Branch, so that could be your ticket to the event.


Oasis Carnival is looking to recruit workers to act as stewards at the festival, so quickly head over to the Oasis Carnival website for more information and to apply.


OK, so it's not a sure-fire way to bag a ticket, but it's definitely worth a shot. The Guardian is one of Glastonbury's media partners, and every year they have a bunch of tickets to give away. Keep a keen eye on them for more details and keep your fingers, legs and toes firmly crossed.

Glastonbury 2016 takes place from June 22 to 26 and is headlined by AdeleColdplay and Muse.

Cyndi Lauper, Bastille, Jess Glynne, Ellie Goulding, LCD Soundsystem, Years & Years, Stormzy and Beck are among the other performers confirmed.

Head to the official Glastonbury website for more information.
