Tickets for event's 40th anniversary snapped up within 12 hours
The 2010 Glastonbury festival sold out in roughly 12 hours yesterday (October 4).
The event was using the deposit scheme that it introduced last year, allowing festival goers to reserve their ticket for £50 as long as they settled the remaining balance by the end of February next year. Fans could also pay for their tickets outright.
According to the official site confirmation emails are still being sent out to those who managed to buy tickets.
“Registration will re-open on Oct 12 & there will be another chance to buy tickets from cancelled orders in 2010.”
No acts have been confirmed for the 2010 festival except for one competition winner who triumphed in a battle of the bands contest, though co-organiser Emily Eavis said Glastonbury are currently “cementing” headliners for the festival’s 40th anniversary year.
