Glastonbury Festival 2013 has sold out in record time. All tickets for the event went onsale yesterday, and all were gone within 1 hour 40 minutes. Organisers Michael Eavis and daughter Emily were clearly impressed with the volume and speed of sales, releasing the following statement-
"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..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. If you were one of those who managed to get a ticket, then we look forward to welcoming you to Worthy Farm in June. If not, then there is likely to be a resale of returned tickets in the spring, and your registration will also remain valid for future Glastonbury Festivals - so we hope to see you down here at some point."
As ever, the tickets were sold before any acts had been revealed for the festival- As if there were any doubt, Glastonbury is waaaaay bigger than any band that plays it.
