GLASTONBURY Festival tickets sold out in just over an hour after its See Tickets website experienced a “technical problem” during this morning's sale.

General admission tickets for the festival, which will be held at Worthy Farm in June, went on sale at 9am this morning. 

This followed coach and ticket packages selling out within 23 minutes of launching on Thursday (November 3).

General admission tickets typically sell out in around half an hour, but See Tickets reported the “technical problem” at around 9.49am.

After all tickets were sold, the service apologised to customers “who missed out or had issues trying to book”.

Some users reported problems including being “chucked out” of the website after filling in their bank details, or being taken back to the homepage after confirming the number of tickets they wanted.

Writing on Twitter, Glastonbury Festival co-organiser Emily Eavis said: “Although we are thrilled that so many of you want to come to next year's Glastonbury, we're sorry that a huge number of people missed out on a ticket this morning - because demand far outstripped supply. 

“Thank you to everyone who tried to buy a ticket. Your loyalty to this festival is deeply appreciated. 

“There will be a ticket resale in spring 2023, so if you didn't get one, please do try again then.”

Glastonbury Festival has a capacity of around 210,000 people, with some gaining entry to the site in voluntary or charity roles. 

Oxfam has already advertised roles at the festival, which will see people carry out three shifts and have “plenty of time to enjoy the festival”.

The festival will be held between Wednesday, June 21 and Sunday, June 25, 2023.
