Many fans are left frustrated after missing out
Coach and ticket packages for next year’s Glastonbury Festival sold out in 23 minutes this evening (October 6).
Up to 15,000 tickets were snapped up when they went on sale at 6pm. Many fans managed to get their hands on tickets but many missed out and were left frustrated by the ticketing system.
Seetickets posted a message on Twitter at 6.23pm which confirmed all tickets had sold out. It said: “All coach packages for next year’s @GlastoFest are now SOLD OUT. Ticket only deposits go on sale Sunday at 9am.”
General admission tickets will now go on sale on October 9 at 9am. Registration for tickets closed on October 3. You will be able to buy tickets here.
Of those that did get their hands on tickets, one fan wrote: “So I’ve only gone and got Glastonbury tickets for next year.”
Another fan wrote: “#Glastonbury #tickets sorted !!” and posted an image of Charlie with a golden ticket from the Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory movie.
Many were left without tickets and were frustrated that they couldn’t even get through with one fan posting a screenshot and writing: “JAYSUS #Glastonbury.”
Others complained that when they got through, the site still crashed and they missed out on tickets. One fan wrote: “Well there’s 30 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. 13th yr running that I’ve tried and failed to get #Glastonbury tickets! #gameover.”
Another posted: “DAMN YOU GLASTONBURY TICKET SYSTEM,” while another wrote: “Not impressed with the Glastonbury booking site, it didn’t reflect sold-out status & left me hanging on unnecessarily.”
Glastonbury Festival 2017 will run from June 21-25. Guns N’ Roses, Kasabian, Radiohead and The Stone Roses are among the favourites to headline next year, while Daft Punk and Lady Gaga have also been rumoured.
Glastonbury has also announced that its next fallow year will take place the year after. “We can also confirm that we will be taking our next fallow year in 2018, in order to give the farm, the village and the festival team the traditional year off. There are no plans to hold an event at another location in 2018,” a statement reads.
Last month it was revealed that a proposed move to Longleat had fallen through.
