Glastonbury tickets sold out in a record time of just 1 hour and 40 minutes after the festival's website opened its doors to hopeful punters 9am yesterday (Sunday, October 7).
With all tickets snapped up by 10:40am, festival organisers Michael and Emily Eavis posted a joint statement on Twitter saying: "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. Demand simply outstripped supply."
Fans could reserve up to eight tickets - each costing £205 plus booking fee. Those who managed to secure a ticket paid a £50 deposit immediately, with the remaining money due when the booking site reopens on April 2 2013.
Any returned tickets will be put on sale in April 2013.
Tickets for next June's festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset, which will draw about 135,000 people, cost £10 more than last year.
The headline acts have yet to be announced - although Mr. Eavis told the BBC earlier this year that they had already been chosen.
The record breaking demand follows a dismal summer for UK festivals this year, with many events cancelled including Underage Festival, Sonisphere UK, The Big Chill 2012, GoGo Festival, LadyRock Festival 2012, Titanic Lockdown, Pride House, Trowbridge Festival, Kelvedon Free Music Festival and Harvest at Jimmy's.
