Few festivals can lay claim to being one of Europe’s premier music and art festivals. Belgium’s Tomorrowland and England’s Creamfields certainly sit atop the list. However, Glastonbury has once again set the bar by selling out it’s 2019 edition in only 37 minutes. What’s more impressive: The festival is far from releasing their lineup.
The reason for the high demand perhaps lays in the fact that the festival took off 2018 to allow the grounds to rest up for amount of traffic that comes through annually. After a 2017 edition that boasted Radiohead, The Foo Fighters, and Ed Sheeran, Justice, Solange, and Run The Jewels, to name a few, the iconic festival returns next June after a two-year hiatus.
“We are blown away by the huge demand, looks like record numbers tried,” one Glastonbury organizer shared over social media. “Thank you for your patience and incredible support and for those of you who missed out, there will be a ticket resale in April.”
Approximately 135,000 fans can expect to see the world’s top acts perform at next year’s gathering at Pilton in Somerset, England.
