Glastonbury Festival's Tickets Sold Out Within 2 Hours



Showing a great interest for Glastonbury Festival, fans are queueing the online ticket sale which eventually finished fast.

One hour and 45 minutes is the approximate duration of Glastonbury Festival's sold out tickets. Opened on April 1 at 09.00 BST, 137,500 tickets were gone as fast as lightning on websites like eBay.

Michael Eavis, the festivals' organizer said that he was thrilled and considered it as a 100 percent success. "It's probably the fastest time we have ever sold out," he told BBC News. A total of 400,000 goers have bid for their tickets through new ticketing system and were successful. However, fans who don't get their tickets can put their hopes to those putting their tickets back on sale or the ones not paying the bill on April 22.

This sold out marks the success of new ticketing system where people must submit passport-sized photos to purchase the tickets. The photos will later be printed on their tickets, hindering those trying to use others'. Moreover, the new form of tickets has other benefit. "And people will be able to keep their tickets for ever and ever because we won't need to tear them in half any more. It'll be a great keepsake," Eavis said.

The festival which is held June 22-24 in Somerset, will feature headlining acts from Arctic Monkeys, The Who and The Killers. Other artists in support of the event are Arcade Fire, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, Shirley Bassey and many more.
