Glastonbury 2016 tickets sell out in just half an hour of going live on October 4th, and that’s not even the fastest they’ve ever gone out!
Despite reports of server problems, probably owing to the flood of people accessing the website at the time, all the tickets sold out. Last year, 120,000 tickets went out in just 26 minutes. The staggering speed of the sale is a testament to Glastonbury’s immense popularity, with people from all over the world travelling to the UK just for the festival.
In a statement, the festival said,
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. We’re sorry to all of those who missed out – we really wish we could fit you all in!
The ticket price for the festival has gone up from last year, and this time it’s £228 – plus a booking fee of £5. Children under the age of 12 have free entry. There’s going to be a resale of unwanted tickets early next year, along with the tickets that haven’t been paid for, so don’t lose hope yet! If you miss that too, we hear Glastonbury 2017 is going to be great.
The bets on who will headline the 2016 edition of the festival have been placed, and bookies seem to favour Coldplay and Adele, although Foo Fighters, Radiohead and Daft Punk look quite likely too. Read more about possible headliners and a list of odds here.
