2010 Glastonbury Festival sold out all of their available tickets on the first day they went on sale, selling 180,000 tickets in 12 hours. Unbelievable.

 

If you missed out, you still have a chance on October 12th, as they'll offer another chance to buy tickets from cancelled orders.

 

This will be no small Glasto though, as it is the 40 year anniversary of the first Glastonbury experience. As a result, they'll be expanding the non-music festivities, and trying to get the best acts that they can.

 

"People are very interested in this 40 year thing. Everywhere I go, people are asking about. The expectations are really high. So we have to deliver on that. We're trying to get the best headliners in the world," said Michael Eavis.

 

"... There are lots of great ideas flying around for the anniversary. I think it's really looking set to be an interesting year. And it is amazing for it to be reaching 40. You look back and there's been so many moments and so many phases; popular times and really unpopular times and difficult struggles. It's been a very interesting journey. So there is a lot to celebrate," said festival organizer Emily Eavis.

 

 

They've already named the first band to its line up for next year: The John Vistic Experience of Bristol. They won the won the Rockstar 09 competition, a competition of 24 bands, with the winner gaining a spot at the 2010 Glastonbury Festival.
