Glastonbury 2017 tickets sell out in less than an hour amid website crashes

Tickets for the 2017 event went on sale at 9am this morning (October 9)

Tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2017 have sold out in just 55 minutes this morning (October 9).

Some fans reported on social media that the See Tickets website crashed as they tried to buy tickets, but others tweeted that they had managed to purchase tickets without a hiccup.

After coach tickets sold out in just 23 minutes earlier this week, the main batch of tickets went on sale at 9am this morning and Glastonbury’s official account tweeted at 9.55am that they had all been sold.

Fans who weren’t lucky enough to secure tickets today will have a second chance in the spring, when Glastonbury offers its traditional batch of re-sale tickets.

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.
