This weekend hundreds of thousands of people sat online refreshing a webpage waiting for the moment when they could press the ‘buy tickets’ button. At £225 Glastonbury 2015 sold out of 150,000 tickets in just 26 minutes, a record time for the festival.
The 150,000 lucky ones who managed to bag the gold-dust tickets purchased in blind faith as the line up wasn’t even released. Headline London ask the question, is it too much for a ticket? And will the buyers now be happy with the line up, which won’t be released until spring next year. (hyperlink - http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/line-up/ )
Tens of thousands of people who didn’t manage to get tickets were left disappointed and Emily Eavis the daughter of the founder and now co-organiser of the the festival tweeted apologising those who were unsuccessful and promised a resale in spring.
There are rumors Fleetwood Mac and Queen could be among those playing at Worthy Farm in 2015, but it will be a case of waiting with bated-breath to see who it will be, along with the other 149,000 people refreshing that page.
