More Glastonbury tickets for sale
Kylie Minogue
Kylie Minogue will close the show on the Sunday
Hundreds of extra tickets for the Glastonbury music festival are to be put on sale on Tuesday.

This year's festival features acts such as Coldplay and Kylie Minogue.

The extra tickets, which will be available to Orange mobile phone users, follow rapid sales of the first 112,000 tickets, costing 125 each, last month.

A festival official told BBC News there would only be a "minimal amount" of tickets provided through Orange as one of the festival's sponsors.

"This is the same arrangement we've had with Orange for the last few years," he added.

Photo identification

At the end of last month, organisers got the go-ahead to sell another 3,000 tickets for Sunday shows to people with disabilities and to local residents.

Ticket holders for the event, from 24 to 26 June, will have to produce photographic identification matching the names printed on their ticket.

The first set of tickets sold out in just three hours.

Other acts to take to the stage this year include New Order, White Stripes, Coldplay, The Killers, Doves, Elvis Costello, The Undertones and the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson.

The Zutons, The Coral, Ash, Kaiser Chiefs, Jools Holland and The Thrills are also signed up to entertain the crowds.

Organiser Michael Eavis has already announced there will be no festival in 2006.
