Glastonbury Festival Sells Out In Less Than Two Hours
By: Spacelab Research Staff
After clearing last week's hurdle for getting a site license, the Glastonbury Festival put tickets on sale on Sunday April 1st and sold out in under two hours. That's no joke.
The festival organizers were worried that this year's registration system might keep people from signing up to buy tickets. Those fears proved unfounded as 137,500 tickets went in less than one hour.
"We had a quarter of a million of people queuing up to get through. It's probably the fastest time we have ever sold out," Michael Eavis told the BBC.
The registration system was designed to help prevent the reselling of tickets.
Glastonbury organizers swear that any announcements made about a possible line up for 2007 by anyone other than them are pure speculation, and won't announce any names until June.
