Glastonbury sold out in 2 hours

But you could win a pair of tickets here!

Glastonbury sold out in 2 hours

01 April 2007

As expected, eager fans bought up all 135,000 tickets in a whirlwind of frantic online and telephone bookings, which ended in either elation or heartache.

It is estimated that two thirds of those who tried to secure themselves a place at Worthy Farm this June missed out.

However, organisers offered a flicker of hope with news that a small number of tickets may be resold on Sunday, 22 April.

Michael Eavis told XFM he was pleased with the way things had gone with ticket sales and praised the 100 staff who took thousands of calls after they went on sale at 9am on Sunday morning.

With demand continually outstripping supply despite an increase in capacity this year, daughter Emily has suggested that in future tickets may be allocated in a way to avoid people continually missing out.

She told the Guardian: "We are thinking of making it so people can come to Glastonbury every three years."

For now though, you'll either be celebrating getting your ticket or looking for something else to do this summer. For a few ideas check out our festivals listings HERE.
