Around 100,000 tickets for this summer’s Glastonbury Festival have been sold since lines opened at 9am this morning.
Demand has been brisk for the festival, set for June 27-29. At present tickets remain available for those who pre-registered before the March deadline. However, in previous years all tickets sold out within hours.
“I think three years of mud may have taken their toll, but even so, 100,000 isn’t bad,” organiser Michael Eavis said.
Glastonbury spokesman John Shearlaw said the sale was “proceeding slowly but fairly”, according to the BBC.
“We have a total of 137,500 tickets on sale and there have been no problems reported back to us so far,” he said.
“We have worked on the sales system extensively since last year and everyone has a fair chance.”
He urged festival-goers to “be patient, keep trying and we will let you know when there aren’t any tickets left”.
