Smiles and tears across the country as Glastonbury Festival 2020 sells out in 33 minutes

Glastonbury 2020 tickets went on sale today and while there are nuggets of joy in the stories shared by fans, the overwhelming feeling is that of sadness as the Festival’s standard tickets sold out in under 33 minutes.

Billed as being likely to be one of the most memorable festivals in recent years, the world’s most famous festival turns 50 next year so the demand for tickets was even higher than expected. Following this year’s wildly successful event, organiser Emily Eavis called it “the best festival yet!”

With the line-up yet to be announced, it’s hard to imagine any other festival having such a draw. But while the line-up is not confirmed the rumours swirling around Somerset are big. Whispers of Paul McCartney, Foals and Fleetwood Mac continue to make their way around the industry.

The first batch of tickets, which included coach travel, sold out on October 3rd in under 27 minutes and now, the much larger release, of standard tickets only took a little longer than that.

The ticket site See Tickets announced, just 33 minutes after they went on sale at 9am, that the event was sold out. Naturally, Twitter is full of jubilation and sadness as the reality of not going to one of the biggest festivals ever sets in.

But, Rejoice! As there’s still a chance to get your hands on a ticket. A resale for unwanted and unpaid coach packages will take place on Thursday April 16th, 2020 with a main resale on Sunday, April 19th, 2020 following that.
