Glastonbury Festival resale tickets snapped up in minutes

Extra tickets for the June festival sold out within a matter of minutes on Sunday morning.
Great deals on musical instruments
Resale tickets for this year's Glastonbury Festival sold out in just a matter of minutes when they went on sale on Sunday (April 21st) morning.

Fans were given the opportunity to purchase tickets that had been returned from the original launch date for the summer bash and organisers later stated that all the remaining passes had been bought.

Tickets, which included coach and ticket packages, were picked up by eager music fans excited to see headline acts such as Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford and Sons.

Glastonbury Festival tweeted: "Apologies to those of you who didn't manage to get a ticket - demand far outstripped supply so unfortunately some people had to miss out."

This year's event will take place at Worthy Farm on June 28th to 30th and the likes of Foals, Dizzee Rascal, The Horrors, Alt-J, Crystal Castles, Sinead O'Connor and The Vaccines will be joining the bill topping acts.

Glastonbury took a year off in 2012 due to a lack of Portaloos and police officers that would be needed for the London Olympics.
