Glastonbury fans fume over 'technical glitch' as they miss out on 2024 tickets
| Last updated
Plenty of music fans hoping to get tickets to Glastonbury 2024 have been left frustrated after they sold out in just under an hour.
They were supposed to go on sale a couple of weeks ago but just before the digital floodgates were set to burst open the festival announced the date would be pushed back 'out of fairness' so everyone could register for a chance.
Then there was a problem with registration as some people realised to their horror that their registrations had been deleted and they'd be missing out.
Glastonbury's general admission tickets finally went on sale this morning (19 November) at 9.00am and and 59 minutes later the company that sells the tickets announced it was all over.
"Tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2024 are now SOLD OUT," See Tickets wrote on social media.
"Confirmation emails are going out now. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets this morning and sorry to those who missed out."
Glastonbury acknowledged that a lot of people missed out on the chance to go as 'demand greatly exceeded supply', although that seems to be the case pretty much every year.
This isn't actually the last chance to get Glastonbury tickets, as in spring there'll be a sale of any cancelled or returned tickets to fill up the final places.
While no acts have yet been confirmed for Glastonbury 2024, plenty of people are fuming that they won't be able to go and see it live.
Some were unhappy that they didn't get tickets while others were more annoyed with the process.
"I don't think the #Glastonbury ticket allocation system is very sensible. I think a better system would be one where me and my friends got a ticket," one person joked.
Others wondered 'how large groups of people seem to go every single year' when so many find it difficult to get a ticket.
However, there were plenty of complaints for the Glastonbury ticket waiting room as festival fans wondered 'why do I even do this to myself every year'.
People dubbed the holding page the 'screen of death' and said they were stuck on it with no way to get access to tickets.
As one fan put it: "I am currently in a queue, waiting to get into another queue where I can buy a ticket which will allow me to queue in traffic next summer.
"Millions of British people have risen early on a Sunday just to line up like I have.
"I've never felt such unity."
