Organisers Michael and Emily Eavis thank punters for being 'patient' with booking system
All tickets for Glastonbury 2011 sold out just over four hours after going onsale today (October 3).
In a statement on the site and their official Twitter account, Twitter.com/glastofest, Michael and Emily Eavis thanked punters for their patience with the booking system.
They said: “We’re very sorry to those of you who didn’t get tickets, and acknowledge there were some issues with the website/phoneline due to the sheer volume of people trying to get through.”
The price for each ticket to the Somerset event is £195, plus postage and packing and a £5 booking fee.
Registration and registration look-up will reopen tomorrow (October 4) for those hoping to snap up cancelled tickets when an expected resale takes place, which was held in April for this year’s festival.

He also denied plans for retiring from organising the event, stating he has got “another 10 years possibly left in me.”
