Tickets for the Glastonbury Festival have sold out, organisers announced today.

No headline acts have been confirmed for the event, which will take place in late June.

An early ticket deposit scheme was launched in October, and organisers said the "vast majority" of festival-goers completed their full payment by 1 February.

Emily Eavis, who runs Glastonbury with her father Michael, said: "We're chuffed to bits that we've managed to sell so many tickets so far ahead, especially when you look at the weather outside.

"Thanks to everyone for keeping the faith; it's certainly shaping up to be another vintage year for the Glastonbury Festival, with a brilliant line up to be unveiled in June."

Last year around 3,000 tickets remained unsold in the days leading up to the festival.
