Tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2013 have sold out in record time, after going onsale at 9am this morning (October 7).

Festival boss Emily Eavis took to Twitter this morning to confirm that tickets for the Worthy Farm bash had sold out in 1 hour and 40 minutes, but also revealed that there will be a further resale in April to give those who missed out due to technical problems a further chance to buy.

Earlier this week (October 5), Eavis told NME that this year's pre-registering service had been introduced to ensure a smoother and "more efficient" system, stating: "All I can say is that we’ve done all that we can to try and make it as quick as possible and not have people hanging on phone lines for hours.”

Writing on NME’s Facebook page, however, many would-be-punters who had pre-registered were unable to buy tickets due to problems on the See Tickets website.

Cat Lewis wrote: "Being kicked out of the booking form twice is not what I call 'more efficient ticket sales'," while Matthew Gardner shared: "Got onto the part where you put in your registration numbers, (saw the promised land) then clicked proceed and then it died on me." Molly Carnan, meanwhile, simply said: "Impossible. Bastards."

Other users had more luck, however, with Chloe Allen writing: "Got them, I wasn’t successful but my boyfriend was. He did the booking form twice before it went through. It was gridlock from 8.30 though. So relieved." Chris Murphy added: "Got them, couldn’t be happier! Went in 2010, missed out in 2011 so it’s all the sweeter!"

People commenting on the scrum on Twitterseemed to have mixed success, too – scroll down below to see the varied responses from those who tried to get tickets:
