We know nothing about the Glastonbury Festival line-up for 2015 but people have already been desperate to get their hands on tickets for one of the biggest events of the summer.

This year we witnessed Kasabian, Metallica and Arcade Fire headline the Pyramid Stage across the weekend while a host of other musicians from around the world performed on the numerous stages but a lot of people were left feeling sad this morning as tickets sold out for next year incredibly fast.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that tickets for Glastonbury 2015 sold out in less than half an hour yesterday (Sunday 5th October) as the festival is always in high demand despite no one knowing who will take to the stage.

The bookies have been sharing their odds for who is favourite and it seems like Fleetwood Mac are looking like an almost certainty to appear at Worthy Farm next June with a host of other big names also favourites to appear.

This was the second batch of tickets to go on sale this week for the festival and those who registered in time and managed to get through and get a successful purchase were left feeling fairly happy and could we say ‘smug’ that they had secured their place.

For many though, whether it be a poor connection, overloaded servers or just bad timing on their part, many were left feeling disappointed that they couldn’t get their hands on a ticket for one of the hottest events of the summer.

Take a look at some of the tweets below. Keep your chins up though people, there will be a resale in the near future! There’s still hope for you yet that you’ll make it to Glastonbury with thousands of others.

Shortly after tickets selling out yesterday (October 5th) Emily Eavis, daughter of Michael Eavis – Glastonbury founder, took to Twitter.

Eavis tweeted her apologies to those who couldn’t get tickets: “We have sold out, thank you to everyone for supporting us and I’m sorry to those of you who have missed out.”

She added: “I’m sorry to everyone who missed out, so wish we could get everyone in.”

Did you manage to get your hands on a ticket for Glastonbury 2015 or were you left feeling like those poor people up there?

As we said, a resale of tickets will take place in the Spring so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for news on that.

While you’re here, why not take a trip down memory lane and watch a clip of Kasabian performing at Glastonbury this year.

Remember their incredible set where they headlined and closed Glastonbury 2014 on the Pyramid Stage? Leave your thoughts below.
