Half the tickets for 2009’s Glastonbury music festival have been sold already, eight months before the Somerset festival is due to take place.

Tickets went on sale on Sunday morning and by early evening more than half the 137,500 places were snapped up.

Fans were able reserve places by paying a £50 deposit, or they could buy their tickets outright for £175 each.

Spokesman John Shearlaw said he was "chuffed" so many tickets had gone for the event at Worthy Farm, Pilton.

Next year’s Glastonbury runs for five days, from June 24 to 28.


Festival co-organiser Emily Eavis told the BBC news website in September that the headliners for next year should be announced "pretty soon".

"It’s not Coldplay, it’s not U2 and it’s not the Rolling Stones," she said.

She also said Franz Ferdinand and The Ting Tings would be "somewhere on the bill" after playing a show for locals.

Ms Eavis said the booking of acts had been brought forward in response to the earlier ticket sale.
