Glastonbury Festival tickets sold in just over half an hour, leaving thousands empty handed and a lucky few in shock they actually managed to grab a ticket.
As always, people took to Twitter to document their journey through the holding page. #GlastonburyTickets was trending an hour before tickets officially went on sale, primarily down to people showing off how they had surrounded themselves with multiple devices in the hope one of them would load the sacred booking form.

As the page went live at 9am, however, attention turned to the refresh button, with people bashing away on multiple tabs just to get through.
If I had a quid for everytime I hit the refresh button this morning, I could afford to put Glastonbury on in my garden. #GlastonburyTickets— Ray Bradshaw (@comedyray) October 4, 2015
Things only got worse as the dreaded "This page is not availble" page kept popping up.

The optimists out there are already looking to next Spring.
Bookies have already announced who they believe will be headlining the Worthy Farm bash. The current favourites are Coldplay, closely followed by both Foo Fighters and Adele. See all the odds here.
