Glastonbury Sells Out
Glasto tickets sell out in four hours as festival boss says he’ll never retire...
Tickets to next year's Glastonbury Festivalsold out four hours after going on sale today, October 3.
Tickets were made available at 9am and sold out just after 1pm. Headliners are rumoured to include U2, who were forced to pull out of this year’s event when Bono injured his back, Take Thatand Kylie Minogue.
Glastonbury celebrated its 40th anniversary this year but festival boss Michael Eavis said this week he has no plans for retirement.
"Maybe I've got another 10 years possibly left in me," the 75-year-old said. "I've got no signs of giving up at the moment but I certainly need all the help I can get. [My daughter] Emily will be in a good place to take the show on eventually.
“The headliners next year are absolutely fantastic, I can guarantee that,” Eavis continued. “It'll be on a par with this year, and possibly slightly better even.”
Next year’s festival takes place on June 24-26. It will take a break in 2012 to give Worthy Farm a chance to recover and to make way for the London Olympics which begin in July 2012.
