More than half of the tickets for Glastonbury 2011 sold out within two hours of going onsale today (October 3).

The tickets were made available at 9am (BST) this morning (October 3) from Seetickets.com/g2011 and over the phone on 0844 412 4635.

The price for each ticket to the Somerset event is £195, plus postage and packing and a £5 booking fee

According to Glastonburyfestivals.co.uk, just under half of the tickets for the event are still available.

Writing on her Twitter page, twitter.com/emilyeavis, organiser Emily Eavis urged those having trouble booking tickets to "keep trying".

She added: "Please be patient, there is massive demand. Thanks for sticking with it."

Those wishing to book tickets will need registration numbers and postcodes for everyone they are booking for. Registration is now closed.

Fans who have registered to buy tickets will be eligible to purchase up to eight per transaction by paying a £50 deposit (per person) when tickets go on sale on Sunday. After the deposits have been taken no further payments will be needed until spring 2011, when the booking site reopens.

Once the ticket site reopens, festival-goers will have one week to pay the rest of the ticket price and book tipis, campervan tickets, insurance and parking tickets, if needed. See Glastonburyfestivals.co.uk for more information.

Glastonbury 2011 takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton. Billed music takes place on June 24-26, with the site opening on June 22.
