|Tickets for the 2013 Glastonbury Festival went on sale over the weekend, and completely sold out in about an hour and a half. That's completely nuts. The festival holds hundreds of thousands of people, and they all snatched up tickets in that time.
The long-awaited tickets were much-anticipated due to the fact that Glastonbury took this year off to not compete with the 2012 Olympics, so anybody whose a Glasto fanatic has not been to the show since 2011. The tickets required registration, which closed on Sept, 30th, so anyone who hadn't registered can't buy tickets until the resale that happens in April. Tickets went for £205 a piece, and there were some technical problems with the online ticket sales, leading festival organizer Emily Eavis to say this on Twitter:
There are always tickets leftover, so holdouts still have hope. The show is already starting to shape up, some of the headliners have already been booked according to organizer Michael Eavis. Earlier this year he said that "We've already got three headliners lined up for 2013. I know who they all are, but I'm not going to go into details about that. We can't wait for 2013."
