Glastonbury Festival tickets sell out

This year's Glastonbury Festival has completely sold out, organisers have announced.

All the passes to the UK's Best Major Festival have been snapped up.

Speaking about the news, co-organiser Emily Eavis said: "We're chuffed to bits that we've managed to sell so many tickets so far ahead, especially when you look at the weather outside.

"Thanks to everyone for keeping the faith; it's certainly shaping up to be another vintage year for Glastonbury Festival, with a brilliant line up to be unveiled in June."

After the success of the 2008 event, which Virtual Festivals called, "one of the best Glastonbury festivals in a decade," festival-goers have been eager to get passes for the five-day event.

There will be a limited number of returned tickets on sale from 5 April, but those wishing to buy returns must register by 31 March.
