<i>"Tickets for GLASTONBURY 2005 have once more sold out in record time.
All 112,000 tickets for Juneâ€™s festival â€“ which went on sale at 9am this morning â€“ have sold out in under three hours.
A message on official online booking service Aloud.com reads â€œsorry, but all tickets for Glastonbury 2005 have now been sold and no more will be made available.â€?
Following last yearâ€™s speedy sell-out, which saw the telephone exchange collapse due to demand and thousands of people waiting for hours uncertain whether they had been successful, steps had been taken to make the ticketing process smoother.
But with an estimated 2million people all out for the same batch of tickets, getting a ticket for Glastonbury 2005 was always going to be a lottery, in which many would be left disappointed.
For those lucky enough to snap up the tickets this morning, Glastonbury 2005 takes place June 24-26 and is expected to feature The White Stripes, Coldplay, New Order and Kylie."</i>
I've actually seen Coldplay and Kylie play the same event before. Leicester played host to a Radio 1 event a good few years ago in Victoria Park. Looking forward to White Stripes and New Order (me being a pseudo-manc now)
