TICKET STAMPEDE

All 112,000 festivals tickets are snapped up in three hours...

Tickets for GLASTONBURY 2005 have once more sold out in record time.

All 112,000 tickets for June’s festival – which went on sale at 9am this morning – have sold out in under three hours.

A message on official online booking service Aloud.com reads “sorry, but all tickets for Glastonbury 2005 have now been sold and no more will be made available.”

Following last year’s speedy sell-out, which saw the telephone exchange collapse due to demand and thousands of people waiting for hours uncertain whether they had been successful, steps had been taken to make the ticketing process smoother.

But with an estimated 2million people all out for the same batch of tickets, getting a ticket for Glastonbury 2005 was always going to be a lottery, in which many would be left disappointed.

For those lucky enough to snap up the tickets this morning, Glastonbury 2005 takes place June 24-26 and is expected to feature The White Stripes, New Order and [url=]Kylie.
