The Glastonbury Festival website has been inaccessible for many users for most of today following huge demand for tickets for the 2010 Festival which went on sale this morning.
Ticket phone lines have been busy for most of the day, too, following the opening of the lines at 07:30am on 4th October 2009.
Those who had pre-registered their interest, or attended this year’s Festival were able to order for the 2010 Festival but, with interest in music festivals soaring at present, demand was always likely to outstrip supply for “Glasto” which will, in 2010, be the 40th anniversary event.
Next year will see the end of one era and the dawn of another, as event organiser, Michael Eavis, is passing the Festival management over to his daughter and son-in-law for the 2010 Festival.
Mr Eavis also confirmed that the Festival will again run in 2011, before taking a break to rebuild the land upon which he runs the annual music event.
The online See Tickets page for the 2010 Festival this evening confirmed that both deposits and full tickets have all sold out for the 2010 music Festival – within one day.
