Glastonbury is sold out in just 100 minutes
GLASTONBURY Festival tickets sold out in record time yesterday – in just over one hour and 40 minutes.
More than 1,500 tickets were sold every minute for next year's festival.
Yesterday's ticket sale saw a sell-out of the event's 135,000 tickets with organisers Michael and Emily Eavis describing it as a "humbling experience".
Registration for the Festival, which had a fallow year in 2012, re-opens on Wednesday for those who want to try for the resale of returned tickets which will be next April.

A statement from Michael and Emily Eavis said yesterday: "After one hour and 40 minutes, tickets for Glastonbury 2013 have now completely sold out in record time.
"We would like to say an enormous thanks to everyone who managed to buy a ticket – but we'd also like to extend our sincere apologies to the many thousands who missed out."
The statement added: "We're genuinely humbled by the sheer number of people who would like to come to the festival, and we dearly wish we could have you all along.
"Sadly, that just isn't possible, which means a significant number of people have missed out.
"If you were one of those who managed to get a ticket, then we look forward to welcoming you to Worthy Farm in June. If not, then there is likely to be a resale of returned tickets in the spring and your registration will also remain valid for future Glastonbury Festivals – so we hope to see you down here at some point.
"Thank you all again for your incredible support for Glastonbury Festival."
The gates at Worthy Farm in Somerset will open on June 26 next year and speculation is rife as to who will be headlining. The Rolling Stones and Prince are being tipped as the headliners.
