Glastonbury 2016 tickets sell out in 30 minutes despite server problems

Festival will take place at Worthy Farm from June 22-26

Glastonbury Festival tickets for 2016 sold out in half hour after going on sale on Sunday (October 4).

All tickets sold out in 30 minutes despite reports of server problems preventing some would-be buyers from purchasing tickets.

Last year’s festival sold out in record time, with 120,000 tickets going in just 26 minutes.

“We have, once again, been staggered by the sheer number of people from around the world who hoped to come to the Festival, with demand significantly outstripping supply,” the festival said in a statement.

“We’re sorry to all of those who missed out – we really wish we could fit you all in!”

The ticket price for 2016 has gone up to £228 – plus a £5 booking fee. As usual, children aged 12 and under go for free.

There will be a resale for any unwanted tickets, or any which haven’t been paid for next year.

The three-day bash will take place at Worthy Farm over the week of June 22-26 in 2016.

This year’s festival was headlined by Kanye West, The Who and Florence + The Machine who stepped in for Foo Fighters after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg.

Foo Fighters, Muse, Oasis, Daft Punk, Radiohead were among the bookies’ favourites to headline Glastonbury 2016. Fleetwood Mac, Bloc Party, Blur, The Stone Roses and Ed Sheeran are also among those being tipped.

Bookies William Hill have slashed Coldplay’s odds to 4/1 to headline the Pyramid Stage, having last headlined the event in 2011. Foo Fighters and Blur still remain favourites but Adele is also now 5/1 to top the bill next year.

Festival organiser Michael Eavis recently revealed that all the headliners have been booked for the next two instalments of the festival, with the Glastonbury boss stating that four of the six headliners have topped the bill before and two are completely new.

The full list of odds from William Hill are below:

Coldplay – 4/1
Adele – 5/1
Foo Fighters – 6/1
Blur – 12/1
AC/DC – 14/1
Fleetwood Mac – 14/1
