Glastonbury Festival 2010 sells out within a day

Tickets for event's 40th anniversary snapped up within 12 hours

The 2010 Glastonbury festival sold out in roughly 12 hours yesterday (October 4).

Tickets for next year’s event at Worthy Farm went on sale yesterday morning, and according to official site sold out just after 9pm (BST).

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.

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has also confirmed that more tickets for the festival from cancelled orders will go on sale in 2010. Eavis took to her Twitter page to confirm the news, writing:

“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.
