Glastonbury Tickets Sell Out In Record Time

Published: 2005-04-05
All 112,000 tickets for the Glastonbury Festival 2005 in England have sold-out in record time. It took under three hours for all the tickets to go, which means they went at a rate of about 622 tickets per minute. There were an estimated 2 million people with hopes for a chance to attend the huge music festival, but obviously, the majority are now seriously disappointed.

This year, ticketing for Glastonbury used a different system, which ensured a more smooth sales process. Also new this year, tickets not bought directly from the organization are immediately void (that means any tickets sold on eBay or the like won't get you in). Sadly there will be no more tickets made available, and there is no cancellation list, so any hopefuls are out of luck.

The weekend of June 24-26 is when the event will take place, with virtually an entire city being erected for the festival. Glastonbury plays host to some of the biggest names in music, which this year will include Coldplay, The White Stripes, New Order, and even a Silent Disco, among many, many other acts.
