Glastonbury tickets gone in record time
Tickets for Glastonbury 2013 sold out in a record one hour 40 minutes.
The festival’s Twitter feed apologised to the “thousands” who missed out, adding that there had been some problems with getting through “due to the sheer volume of people”.
“We’re genuinely humbled by the sheer number of people who would like to come to the festival, and we dearly wish we could have you all along,” it read. “Sadly, that just isn’t possible, which means a significant number of people have missed out. Tickets were being sold throughout the morning, but demand simply outstripped supply.”
A smaller number of tickets will be offered for resale in April from those who paid the initial £50 deposit but then changed their mind.
Tickets for next June’s festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset, which will draw about 135,000 people, cost £10 more than last year.
