Fans react as first batch of Glastonbury 2019 coach tickets sell out in 30 minutes

How did you get on?

Glastonbury 2019 ticket and coach packages went on sale tonight (October 4) – and sold out in 30 minutes.

The 2019 edition of the world-famous music festival, which takes place from June 26-30 on Worthy Farm in Somerset, returns after a two-year break. 2018 was a fallow year for the purposes of land repair and recovery.

SeeTickets posted a message on Twitter at 6.30pm which confirmed all coach tickets had sold out:

Many people were delighted to have bagged coach tickets to the festival next summer.

But others missed out….

General admission tickets go on sale this Sunday, 7 October at 9am.

Organiser Emily Eavis wrote on Twitter: “Coach tickets are now all gone. Thanks to everybody for your patience. Our standard ticket sale will be on Sunday at 9am.”

The last installment of the festival in 2017 saw Foo FightersRadiohead and Ed Sheeran headline. Other notable performance came from Dizzee Rascal, London Grammar, Lorde, Katy Perry and BBK.

Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and Kylie are some names who could potentially headline.

Speaking at the VO5 NME Awards in February, Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis dropped some hints about the festival’s 2019 headliners, stating there’ll be “two or three [acts] that have never played”.

His daughter, Emily, told NME that they had “booked one headliner so far”, adding: “Headliners should be the best artists around – whether they’re rappers, pop stars or rock bands. The genre is irrelevant – it’s about who is going to produce the most exciting show and is making the best music.”

Weekend tickets for Glastonbury 2019 cost £248, plus a £5 booking fee. The price of the ticket includes entry to the festival, five nights camping, a free programme and mini-guide, onsite newspaper and mobile charging points, free firewood and access to the Kidzfield.

A portion of the ticket price is also donated to Oxfam, Greenpeace, Wateraid and hundreds of other worthy causes, while funds are also used to improve the site’s infrastructure and environmental impact.
