"UNPRECEDENTED", PERHAPS. BUT UNPREDICTABLE?: Glastonbury have issued an apology for the screw-up, calling the demand for tickets 'unprecedented.' Well, we've got no way of knowing if it is unprecedented or not, although its the first time they've ever tried to flog the lot, in one go, through a single website. But saying "ooh, there were a lot of people trying to buy tickets" isn't really an explanation - surely the very fact they've gone to the trouble of building a million foot fence surrounded by killer dogs and men with lasers which shoot out their eyes, and introduced the 'need a gas bill' requirement to stop touts means they know just how high the demand is to get into Glastonbury? Blaming the number of people trying to buy tickets for the shortcomings of their own planning won't cut it, I'm afraid.
