Glastonbury Tickets Sell Out In Record Time
Glastonbury ticket sales have sold out in a record time of one hour and 27 minutes.
Organisers Emily and Michael Eavis said they were "blown away" by the response.
In a statement, they said: "We're sorry that many of you missed out on a ticket.
"We genuinely try to make the ticket system as fair as it can be, but when demand outstrips supply, it is an unfortunate inevitability that some people will be left disappointed."
Sales got off to a shaky start on Sunday morning with technical issues affecting the first half an hour of sales.
The remaining 120,000 tickets for next year's event went on sale at 9am, with more than a million people pre-registered to buy the biggest festival ticket of the summer.
Weight of demand appeared to have slowed things down temporarily and official ticket agent See Tickets tweeted its apologies for a "difficult half hour".
The system stabilised at around 9.30am, with Emily Eavis†thanking fans for their patience.
The £210 tickets were selling at a rate of 3,000 a minute, according to See Tickets, and by 10am 80,000 had already been sold.
Some fans were able to get their hands on a limited number of tickets before Sunday's main sale when 15,000 coach and ticket packages went on sale on October 3. They were snapped up within half an hour.
People who missed out will get another chance when a resale of returned tickets takes place in the spring.
Many fans took to Twitter after the big ticket dash to celebrate their luck - or express their frustration at missing out.
Harry Gartside tweeted: "An hour and 40 minutes of internet queues only to be told they've sold out, absolutely gutted #Glastonbury."
"After all that excitement, I'm going back to bed to rest my refresh finger. #glastonbury," posted Alice Marshall.
Glastonbury's founder, Michael Eavis, said last month that he already had the headline acts lined up for 2014.
Speaking to the NME, he said they were "more in less in place" and would be three bands that had never played at the festival before.
The Rolling Stones were the big draw at this year's event, playing the Somerset festival to mostly positive reviews.
The 2014 event takes place between Wednesday June 25 and Sunday June 29.
