Music fans are being given the opportunity to win exclusive Pyramid stage-side tickets for the Glastonbury Festival 2023 in a prize draw which will raise funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Turkey and Syria Earthquake Appeal.

The Glastonbury Festival has donated ten pairs of tickets to Oxfam to raise funds to support those hit by the disaster.

Entry to the prize draw is available via Crowdfunder with tickets priced at £10. Multiple entries are permitted, but only one prize per entrant will be given.

By entering the prize draw people can win a pair of general admission weekend tickets. Tickets come with variety of experiences, including a once-in-a-lifetime chance to watch a band from the side of the legendary Pyramid stage on the viewing platform; watching a set from the Other Stage viewing platform; backstage tour of West Holts and watching an act from stage pit. Entrants must be 18 years of age.

Emily Eavis, co-organiser of the Glastonbury Festival, said: “With the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria affecting so many people, we wanted to offer a draw of unique Glastonbury 2023 prizes to raise what we can to help with the relief efforts."

The DEC Turkey and Syria Earthquake Appeal has so far raised £74.1 million to support people who survived the devastating earthquake on 6 February. Over 40.000 people are known to have died.

Oxfam, together with other members of the DEC and local partner organisations, is delivering aid to people affected by the earthquakes in Türkiye (Turkey) and Syria. As part of a coordinated effort Oxfam is supporting survivors with supplies of food, clean water and shelter.

Danny Sriskandarajah, Chief Executive Officer at Oxfam GB, said: “I would like to express our appreciation for Glastonbury’s kind gesture. This will help us to give festival fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity while making a real difference to people hit hard in the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

“People who have lost everything urgently need vital aid to meet their basic needs while surviving through their grief. The money raised from the prize draw will provide more families and individuals with emergency shelter, winter kits, water and food.”

The prize draw opens at 08:00 GMT on Wednesday 15th February and closes at 12:00 GMT on Wednesday 8th March.
