Glastonbury sells out ahead of 50th anniversary
Festival season has only just finished yet Glastonbury 2020 is already in the works, with tickets selling out in just 34 minutes.
135,000 music lovers will be heading to Worthy Farm from June 24th 2020 when Glastonbury festival celebrates it’s 50th anniversary.
After many warnings from organisers to register online to be in with a chance of securing a ticket, they finally went on general sale on Sunday morning.
Despite the festival securing permission to expand and allow more people attend next year’s milestone instalment, it only took 34 minutes for all the tickets to be snapped up.
With over two million people registered, it was always going to be a challenge for those hoping to land a ticket for the festival.
Earlier this year, the Eavis family made The Cure, The Killers and Stormzy all headliners. The latter received an abundance of praise for his emotionally and politically-charged set.
No one has been officially confirmed for Glastonbury’s 50th edition, rumours have been suggesting that Fleetwood Mac could finally grace the Pyramid Stage. Never ones to stick to one genre, other names linked with next year’s festival include Paul McCartney, Ariana Grande, Foals and the Spice Girls.
While many missed out on tickets this weekend, organisers have announced that plans are in the works for a special ballot. The ballot will give 50 people the chance to claim a pair of tickets. Further details are yet to be revealed on when it will take place.
It was also announced that the resale of any coach tickets not paid in full will take place on Thursday 16th April. The resale for general admission tickets will then take place on Sunday 19th April.
Tickets cost £265 (€298) and need to be paid in full by the first week of April. Any tickets not paid in full by the first week of April will then be made available in the resale.
