Glastonbury Festival 2022 resale: 18 minute sell-out leaves some fans ‘gutted’

Coach ticket packages for Glastonbury Festival 2022 sold out in minutes on Thursday (March 24), leaving some music fans “gutted”. Thousands of people were glued to their computer screens in the first of two ticket resales for the Somerset event.

The world-famous music festival returns in June after two cancellations in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many festival-goers who secured passes for the 2020 event in October 2019 have had their tickets rolled over for 2022 – but thousands of tickets will have been passed back to the festival.

Some of those returned tickets went on sale at 6pm on Thursday, while more will be on offer on Sunday (March 27). And it was a mad scramble for coach ticket packages on Thursday, with all passes selling out in just 18 minutes.

Some music fans were elated after they were successful in the frantic ticket battle. Writing on Twitter, Amy Walker said: “I got a Glastonbury ticket, so excited I might cry – first time back since 2017, can’t wait to roll around in those fields!”

Alan Wiggins said: “Managed to get Glastonbury tickets. Looking forward to throwing some shapes at the Pyramid Stage.”

While Tim Frier said: “Glastonbury ticket in the bag – roll on festival number 15. After a three-year break, I have a feeling it’s going to be even more magical than normal.”

However some music fans were left “gutted” after missing out. Writing on Twitter, Finley Kerr said: “Whoever devised the Glastonbury ticket portal ain’t seeing heaven”. Jay said: “Once again got to booking page and all coaches were getting sold out right before my eyes.”

While Lauren said: “Gutted. How can the page allow me to get through, select my coach and then when I go to pay tell me that the coach isn’t available?? I’ve selected it??”

There is one more chance for festival fans to secure a spot at Glastonbury Festival 2022. A resale of general admission tickets will take place on Sunday at 9am.
