    Second chance to buy Glastonbury tickets

    glastonbury1.jpgLONDON: Disappointed Glastonbury fans who missed out when tickets for this year's festival sold out in a record-breaking 90 minutes will get another chance to snap up a ticket later this month, organisers said.


    Michael Eavis, the farmer who runs the festival, said fans could try their luck again on April 22, when tickets that have not been paid for or are no longer wanted will be back on sale.


    "There could be 15,000 to 20,000 of those tickets available," Eavis said.

    Music fans swamped the event's booking telephone line and Web site when the tickets, at 145 pounds each, went on sale on Sunday morning. Within 90 minutes, 137,500 were sold.


    The official festival Web site crashed 30 minutes before the tickets went on sale as it struggled to cope with demand.


    An extra 27,500 revellers were able to buy a ticket this year after organisers won approval to boost capacity to 177,000.


    Glastonbury returns after a year's absence to its Worthy Farm home in Somerset on June 22-24, with the line-up rumoured to include The Who, Kaiser Chiefs and the Arctic Monkeys.
