Site endured "very difficult half hour"
Glastonbury festival

Ticketing agency SeeTickets have responded to complaints over the way they approached the sale of Glastonbury passes.

It's October. Autumn is drawing in around us, leaves are falling from the trees and the summer festival season feels like a distant memory. Yet still, even in amongst this, Glastonbury manages to create headlines.

Tickets for next year's instalment went on sale at the weekend, and sold out in record time. Ticket site SeeTickets almost buckled under the pressure, posting at the time: "Update - after a very difficult half an hour, we've stabilised and are processing orders. Lots of orders! Sorry for the inconvenience".

Following repeated complaints from fans, SeeTickets said on Facebook: "And thanks for all the advice. Never knew we had so many IT consultants following us."

The update draw widespread criticism, with SeeTickets then stating: "Wish we could have sold you all a ticket, we'll keep you posted for info on resales. It's not over yet".

Glastonbury organisers Emily and Michael Eavis posted a statement to fans thanking them for their patience - check it out HERE.
