'We are blown away by the huge demand': Glastonbury 2019 a sell-out

Tickets for Glastonbury 2019 have sold out in 35 minutes. It follows a fallow year for the iconic festival.

Organiser Emily Eavis said that record numbers had tried to snap up tickets for next June’s festival. The capacity at Glastonbury is just over 200,000.

While the line-up has yet to be confirmed, there are rumoured appearances from Sir Paul McCartney, Stormzy, Madonna, Arctic Monkeys and The Cure.  

Eavis recently told Music Week that Arcadia will return at Glastonbury in 2019, following the inaugural standalone event from the pyrotechnics specialists in London this summer.

Following its one-off Biggest Weekend event earlier this year, BBC Music is set to return to Worthy Farm for live coverage. 

Glastonbury retained its Festival Of The Year title at the Music Week Awards in recognition of the 2017 edition featuring Ed Sheeran.

A ticket resale will take place in April. Standard tickets cost £248 plus booking fee.
