These statistics show how much Glasto tickets have risen over the years

We all know that festivals are pretty unaffordable now. We're left with a 'go on holiday' or 'get messy in a field listening to music' kind of decision. And most of us music fans - of course - are forced into that second one. However, it wasn't always that way.

The first Glastonbury Festival, held in 1970 the day after Jimi Hendrix died, cost £1. One English pound, which will soon be worth about half a Euro. So - as Digital Spy kindly points out - that's a price hike of 22,700%.

Furthermore, other festivals such as Reading Festival has seen a 10,500% increase from £2 in 1971 to £213 in 2016, with Isle of Wight Festival seeing a 15,500% rise from £1.25 in 1968 to £195 this year.

Bogus.
