Glastonbury festival tickets sell-out in record time
Sunday 07 October 2012
Tickets for next year's Glastonbury Festival have sold out in record time.
The event's organisers, father and daughter Michael and Emily Eavis, said they were “genuinely humbled by the sheer number of people” who wanted to go, but “demand simply outstripped supply”.
They posted on Twitter: “Tickets for Glastonbury 2013 have now sold out, in 1h 40m (a record).”
Millions of people tried to log onto the ticket website when it opened at 9am this morning, but many were unable to get onto the page because of the volume of hopeful music fans.
Ms Eavis tweeted: “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.
The line-up for next June's festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset, which draws around 135,000 people, is yet to be announced.
