Glastonbury Festival 2014: Tickets sell out in record time - leaving fans disappointed
Ticket website apologises for technical hitch which affected sales
Tickets for Glastonbury Festival went on sale today, and sold out in just one hour and 27 minutes.
Around 120,000 tickets were available, but a technical hitch affecting online sales for the first half an hour left some disappointed.
A spokesman for See Tickets, the website which hosted the sale, apologised on Twitter: "Now selling approx 3,000 tickets a minute. Again, we're really sorry for that first half hour and good luck to everyone who's trying."
Over one million people registered interest for the tickets, which cost £210 each.
The festival organiser Michael and Emily Eavis issued a statement: "We have, once again, been blown away by the numbers of people who were hoping to join us at the festival, and we're sorry that many of you have missed out on a ticket.
"We genuinely try to make the ticket system as fair as it can be, but when demand outstrips supply, it is an unfortunate inevitability that some people will be left disappointed."
The world-famous arts festival, held at a site in Somerset, will take place from 25 to 29 June 2014.
