Glastonbury is giving fans the opportunity to win "once-in-a-lifetime" experiences at this summer's festival in a charity auction.

There's ten experiences available to bid on via Trussell Trust's eBay auction page, including the honour of pressing the "fire" button on the famed Arcadia Spider stage (the current bid is £7,700 at time of writing), taking in a Pyramid Stage set from its exclusive viewing platform, getting a reserved area of Maceo's in Block9 and more. Each experience comes with two tickets to the festival. 

The auction is open now and will close on Monday, 13th February, at 5 PM GMT. 

“We are really pleased to be able to partner with the Trussell Trust, who together with their network of food banks, work tremendously hard during these challenging times to provide food and practical support for communities all over the country," festival co-organiser Emily Eavis said. "We hope this rare ticket auction will help raise significant funds to support their remarkable work.” 

Glastonbury 2023 runs from 21st June through the 25th at Worthy Farm. The full line-up has yet to be revealed, but Elton John is confirmed to headline the Pyramid Stage's closing night.

The ticket price has increased by £55, prompting Eavis to make a statement regarding the rising price of putting on events in the cost of living crisis.

The upcoming edition will be monitored carefully by the local council, which has told festival organisers to take measures to improve noise pollution and crowd control
