Tickets for next year's Glastonbury Festival sold out in less than two hoursthis morning.

100,000s of people across the country hit their computers at 9am in the hopeof getting the coveted tickets.

At 10.40am the organisers posted this message on the festival website:

"After one hour and 40 minutes, tickets for Glastonbury 2013have now completely sold out (in record time). We would like to say an enormousthanks to everyone who managed to buy a ticket - but we'd also like to extendour sincere apologies to the many thousands who missed out.

"We're genuinely humbled by the sheer number of people whowould like to come to the Festival, and we dearly wish we could have you allalong. Sadly, that just isn't possible, which means a significant number ofpeople have missed out. Tickets were being sold throughout the morning - butdemand simply outstripped supply.

"If you were one of those who managed to get a ticket, thenwe look forward to welcoming you to Worthy Farm in June. If not, then there islikely to be a resale of returned tickets in the spring, and your registrationwill also remain valid for future Glastonbury Festivals - so we hope to see youdown here at some point.

"Thank you all again for your incredible support forGlastonbury Festival.


"Michael & Emily Eavis"
