London, Feb 4 (ANI): Tickets for Britain’’s Glastonbury Festival have sold out, nearly five months before the event is slated to take place.

The sales were boosted by an early ticket scheme which opened last October.

The scheme enabled fans to secure tickets for the Somerset festival by paying a 50-pound reserve, instead of the full amount of 175pounds.

They then had to complete their full payment by February 1, reports the BBC.

Any cancelled or returned tickets will be re-sold on 5 April.

Emily Eavis, who runs Glastonbury with her father Michael, said: “We”re chuffed to bits, especially when you look at the weather outside.

“It’’s shaping up to be another vintage year with a brilliant line up to be unveiled in June.”

Headliners for the event, which runs from 26-28 June at Worthy Farm in Somerset, are rumoured to include Bruce Springsteen and recently re-formed Britpop band Blur. (ANI)
