Final batch of tickets sold out in just over an hour
Put away your wellies and dry shampoo – tickets for this year’s Glastonbury Festival have completely sold out.
Weekend camping tickets for the UK’s biggest music festival sold out in just over an hour, and organizers were forced to apologise on Twitter to those who missed out after ‘demand far outstripped supply’.
The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons are the headline acts for this summer. The impressive line-up of over 190 artists also includes Rita Ora, Solange and Jake Bugg.
This is the first time The Rolling Stones are playing at Glastonbury. Lead singer Mick Jagger told the BBC that he plans on calling U2 singer Bono for advice on their upcoming performance, after U2 headlined in 2011.
The event, held at Worthy Farm in Somerset at the end of June, cost fans £205 (plus booking fee) for weekend tickets – £10 more than the last festival in 2011 when U2, Coldplay and Beyoncé headlined.
The festival’s ticketing process has been criticized before for not being able to cope with demand. Festival organizer Emily Eavis tweeted to ask for feedback.
