GLASTONBURY 2015: FIRST 15,000 FESTIVAL TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT IN 14 MINUTES

GlastonburyThe first batch of tickets for Glastonbury 2015 has sold out in just 14 minutes.

A total of 15,000 coach and admission packages for the next year’s festival were bought up in less than a quarter of an hour.

Emily Eavis, who organises the mammoth event with her father Michael, said on Twitter: “Wow, all 15,000 coach + ticket packages went in 14 minutes! That’s amazing.”

Festival fans have not missed their chance to attend next year’s event, however.

Standard weekend tickets will go on sale on Sunday morning, with tens of thousands expected to attempt to secure their place at the Somerset festival.

Tickets for this summer’s event, which starred Dolly Parton, Metallica and Arcade Fire, sold out in a record time of one hour and 27 minutes last year.

The full price of a Glastonbury 2015 ticket is £220 plus a £5 booking fee.

Bookmakers William Hill have installed Fleetwood Mac as favourites to headline next year’s festival, with odds of 4/6. Others being linked to a performance on the Pyramid Stage include AC/DC, Elton John and Prince.
