8.00am update: Glasto registration falls over

Well, the please don't swamp us plea didn't work - if you went to Glastonbury Registration at 8am, you were more than likely to get a redirect to, erm, SeeTickets front page. There was a page which explained what was happening:


Service Busy

We're sorry, but in order to provide a fast and efficient service, we have limited the number of simultaneous users of our registration system.

At the moment, we are very busy. Please note that registration is not first come first served. You can register at any point between 1st February and 28th Februrary. Everyone will have an equal chance of getting a ticket when they go on sale.

If you're struggling to get access, it might be best to try in a couple of days, or at a non-peak time such as during the working day, early in the morning or late at night.

Alternatively, you can try again at www.glastonburyregistration.co.uk.

... but shouldn't that have been the page the redirect went straight to, rather than the ticket agency homepage?

Glasto organisers in "can't organise" shocka! Like Celeb Big Brother it seems that to keep up the interest, this year's customers have to risk their personal details in order to take part. Surely someone in the Home Office will spot the "Don't worry, our scheme is going to be nothing like the Glastonbury fiasco" spin opportunity. - E.

Meh. A few words of advice to people pissing and moaning about missing out on Glastonbury tickets: stop it. It's nowhere near as amaaaazing as your puddlewit chums say it is. Go to Bestival instead.
