Organisers say this year's trouble will not happen again "at all cost"...
This year’s GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL has sold out after “unprecedented” demand for tickets – and MICHAEL EAVIS has apologised to those who have been left empty-handed.
As previously reported, tickets for the event went on sale at 8pm Thursday night (April 1), but many who attempted to get online to buy tickets have been frustrated, claiming the only website that’s selling tickets has been unable to cope with demand.
Also, many fans have found that a telephone line set up to sell tickets has been almost constantly engaged.
Organisers have just called NME.COM (8pm) to say that the festival has now completely sold out. All the tickets went in 24 hours.
A statement from organiser Michael Eavis reads: “I have to say I’m very sorry that so much trouble has been caused by the serious delays within the phone lines and the website. We will make sure that this doesn’t happen again at all cost.
”Sincere apologies that this event, which has so much to offer, has – on this occasion – caused many of you such frustration and disappointment.”
Other stars including Kings Of Leon, PJ Harvey, Toots & the Maytals, James Brown, Franz Ferdinand, Basement Jaxx, Elbow, The Chemical Brothers, Ms Dynamite, Vines, [/a], [a], [/a], [a] and [a][/a] are also rumoured to play.
