Coach ticket packages for the 2022 Glastonbury Festival sold out in minutes on Thursday March 24, leaving some music fans “emptied”. Thousands of people were glued to their computer screens during the first of two ticket resales for the Somerset event.
The world-renowned music festival returns in June after two cancellations in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many festival-goers who secured passes for the 2020 event in October 2019 had their tickets rolled over to 2022 – but thousands of tickets will have been sent back to the festival.
Some of those returned tickets went on sale at 6 p.m. Thursday, while others will go on sale Sunday (March 27). And it was a mad rush for coach ticket packages on Thursday, with all passes selling out in just 18 minutes.

While Tim Frier said: “Glastonbury ticket in the bag – roll on festival number 15. After a three year hiatus I have a feeling it’s going to be even more magical than normal.”
However, some music fans were “gutted” after missing out. Writing on Twitter, Finley Kerr said: “Whoever designed Glastonbury’s ticket gate sees no heaven”. Jay said: “Once again I came to the booking page and all the trainers were selling out before my eyes.”
While Lauren said: “Vetted. How can the page allow me to drop by, select my coach, then when I go to pay, tell me the coach is not available?? I selected him?? “
There’s one more chance for festival fans to secure a place at Glastonbury Festival 2022. A resale of general admission tickets will take place at 9am on Sunday.
