Tickets sold out in just 25 minutes
Tickets for next year’s Glastonbury festival went on sale at 9am this morning (October 5) with the event selling out in a record 25 minutes. As the great gold rush for the coveted passes got underway, punters took to Twitter to reveal the elation and frustration of the race to get to next summer’s event.
The social network began lighting up before sales had even kicked off with many nervous fans posting updates as they perched over their various computers and devices. For some, a Sunday morning out of bed wasn’t exactly thrilling.
Some fans were, perhaps, a little over zealous.
In the quest for tickets there were plenty of excited winners.

Not everyone, however, was as lucky.
Some people were unhappy with the technology.
While others had some interesting ideas on how organisers could avoid a quick sell out in future, not to mention suggestions on how those who failed to get a ticket could to recreate the festival experience.
A few, however, just saw the funny side of things.
No line-up announcements have been made for the event – which runs from June 24 to 28 – but Fleetwood Mac are currently the favourites to headline with bookies William Hill. However, the odds on Queen headlining have recently been cut from 20/1 to 14/1.
