Festival-goers hoping for a last-chance bid to get tickets for this year’s Glastonbury Festival in the resale are in for some bad news: they’ve all gone.

The tickets went on sale at 9am on Sunday and were quickly snapped up eagerly by music fans in a mere 11 minutes.

Organiser Emily Eavis announced that all the tickets had been sold out in the fastest time ever on Twitter.

Tweeting to her 77,000 following, she said, “All the resale tickets have gone in 11 minutes, that's our fastest ever resale time! Thanks to everyone and sorry to those who missed out.”

The tickets originally went on sale in October last year and all 135,000 sold in just 25 minutes.

Last week over 70 acts performing at this year’s music festival were announced, including Pharrell Williams, Florence and the Machine and Patti Smith. Kanye West and Foo Fighters were already announced as headlining acts.

Eavis also quashed rumours that music legend Prince was reportedly due to perform but had pulled out, saying “Tabloid reports today about Prince playing or pulling out are unfounded and completely untrue. We'll unveil all the stages soon!”

The Glastonbury Festival has been running since 1970 and was founded by Michael Eavis. Some of the money from the tickets is donated to charities, including Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid.

This year’s festival will be taking place between 24 – 28 June at Worthy Farm.
