The popular music festival in the UK, Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts managed to set a record, as tickets for Glastonbury 2014 at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset have been completely sold out in just one hour and 27 minutes. The news has been confirmed by Michale and Emily Eavis – the festival organizers – who posted a statement on the Glastonbury’s official Twitter page and apologized to a number of disappointed fans who did not manage to get their tickets on time.
They wrote, “After one hour and 27 minutes, tickets for Glastonbury 2014 have now sold out (in record time)… We have, once again, been blown away by the numbers of people who were hoping to join us at the Festival, and we’re sorry that many of you have missed out on a ticket.” They went on to explain that they are trying to make the ticket system as fair as possible, however, when demand surpasses supply, it is inevitable that some people will be left without a ticket.
Glastonbury fans who did not manage to purchase their tickets on time took to their Twitter accounts to express sadness and disappointment, while those who did shared their joy and amazement over the fact they were lucky enough to get their tickets within a 90-minute time frame.
Glastonbury 2014 is scheduled to take place from June 25, 2014 to June 29, 2014 and the line-up is yet to be announced by the organizers.
