Tickets for the 2013 Glastonbury festival sold out this morning (October 7) in a record time of one hour 40 minutes after going on sale at 9am.
Despite the success of the ticket sales, the ordering site experienced technical difficulties with the online ordering service crashing on users.
Festival boss Emily Eavis revealed that there will be a resale in April to give those who did not get a ticket a second opportunity to do so.
Prior to tickets going on sale for the 2013 event, Eavis had talked about a new pre-registering service which had been introduced to with the intention of ensuring a more efficient ticketing system for the Worthy Farm bash.
She told NME magazine: “All I can say is that we’ve done all we can to try and make it as quick as possibile.”
Glastonbury festival returns next year after a break in 2012, and more information can be found at: http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/.
