The BBC has launched a website to help guide music fans through the process of buying tickets for this year's Glastonbury Festival.
About 175,000 tickets will be available for Glastonbury
In order to tackle touts, everyone who wants to go to the legendary festival has to pre-register during February, submitting a passport-sized photo.
Only those with a unique registration number can purchase the £150 tickets when they go on sale on 1 April.
The Who, The Arctic Monkeys and Bjork are among acts confirmed for the event.
The BBC's site, launched in conjunction with festival organisers, contains details on how to pre-register online, by post and on the high street.
It also explains how new safety measures hope to combat ticket touts.
Sales will be restricted to two tickets per person, and each applicant will have to have a separate registration number.
Photographs will also be printed on the tickets to avoid them changing hands.
Credit cards will not be accepted, and any suspect online transactions will be cancelled.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers offered to play for no fee
"It's a much fairer system," said organiser Michael Eavis.
"The people who buy the tickets on 1 April will be the people who are actually coming to the festival."
The full line-up of the Glastonbury festival will not be announced before tickets go on sale, but several acts have confirmed they are due to play.
Among them are Lily Allen, Hot Chip and Chumbawamba.
But Kylie Minogue, who had been due to headline in 2005 before being diagnosed with breast cancer, will not be appearing this year.
According to music industry paper Music Week, the Red Hot Chili Peppers approached festival organisers about taking her place but were turned down because the space had already been filled.
This year's event is due to be held from 22-24 June on Mr Eavis' Somerset farm, subject to receiving a licence.
