Glastonbury tics sell out in record time
The legendary festival takes place next June...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 08 Oct 2012
Tickets for Glastonbury sold out yesterday morning in just one hour, 40 minutes - a record time for the festival.
Event organisers, father and daughter Michael and Emily Eavis kept punters updated on sales via Twitter: "[Tickest sales company] See are experiencing very, very high demand, which is effecting the speed of the booking site. Tickets are being sold. Please keep at it."
When tickets finally sold out, they said they were "genuinely humbled by the sheer number of people" who wanted to go, but "demand simply outstripped supply".
They continued, "Sorry to everyone who missed out and for any problems you had with the booking site. There will be a resale of any cancelled tickets, which cost £205 (plus £11 booking fee and postage), in April."
For the lucky 135,000 or so fans who managed to nab tics (including HP's very excited Maeve Heslin), the festival takes place on Worthy Farm in Pilton from June 26 - 30, 2013. There's been usual speculation on who will play, with rumours of a possible Stone Roses performance. The Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga and Radiohead are also possible headliners, but as yet no acts have been confirmed.
