Final tranche of Glastonbury 2013 tickets sell out in an hour
Monday 22 April 2013
Those hoping to see the Rolling Stones headline Glastonbury
had one last opportunity to purchase tickets at the weekend but the last batch
sold out in just over an hour yesterday.
Festival organisers announced that weekend camping tickets and coach packages were snapped up in minutes after “demand far outstripped supply”.
A final tranche of tickets for the festival, which takes place from 28 to 30 June, went on sale on Sunday morning at 9am with fans able to reserve up to four tickets at a cost of £205 plus booking fees.
More than 190 acts will appear at this year’s festival with Mumford and Sons and Arctic Monkeys joining the Rolling Stones as headliners.
Organiser Emily Eavis tweeted asking for feedback about the ticketing process which has been criticised for not coping with high demand in the past.
When tickets first went on sale for Glastonbury 2013 in October, selling out in just 1 hour and 40 minutes, Twitter was awash with frustrating from fans unable to get through to the booking site and phone lines.
