Win a pair of Glastonbury 2013 tickets with The Guardian
Yes, the headline is true
Tickets went on sale at 9am this morning and after a while of rather bad server issues (due to high demand), tickets started to be sold……
And in a record 1 hour and 40 mins, all were gone.
There will be a resale of any cancelled in April, but I suspect that will be so fast it will be almost impossible to get one.
Michael and Emily have posted the following message, thanking people for their support and apologising to those who missed out
After one hour and 40 minutes, tickets for Glastonbury 2013 have now completely sold out (in record time). We would like to say an enormous thanks to everyone who managed to buy a ticket – but we’d also like to extend our sincere apologies to the many thousands who missed out.
We’re genuinely humbled by the sheer number of people who would like to come to the Festival, and we dearly wish we could have you all along. Sadly, that just isn’t possible, which means a significant number of people have missed out. Tickets were being sold throughout the morning – but demand simply outstripped supply.
If you were one of those who managed to get a ticket, then we look forward to welcoming you to Worthy Farm in June. If not, then there is likely to be a resale of returned tickets in the spring, and your registration will also remain valid for future Glastonbury Festivals – so we hope to see you down here at some point.
Thank you all again for your incredible support for Glastonbury Festival.
Michael & Emily Eavis

Sorry to everyone who missed out and for any problems you had with the booking site. There will be a resale in April.

Here are some important Questions & Answers about Glastonbury Festival 2013
- When is Glastonbury Festival?
Glastonbury 2013 takes place Wednesday 26th of June – Sunday 30th of June 2013
If the system follows previous years, the gates will open at 8am on the Wednesday and close at 5pm on the Monday immediately after the festival.
Again, if the system follows previous years, then the car parks will open on the Tuesday night, immediately before the festival, keep in mind that you will have to sleep in your car, there are only toilet facilities and you will not be allowed to queue.
Campervans should be able to access the campervan fields from Midday on the Tuesday, but again, you have no access to anywhere else
Glasto.biz reccommends planning your journey carefully, although the music does not start until the Friday of the festival, the best camping spots fill up quickly.
