The much-touted tout-proof ticket is now being touted, as Glastonbury tickets are arriving with purchasrs, and then onto eBay. It turns out the photo quality is so poor, many tickets will get anyone in, providing they have a head.
Michael Eavis is trying to put a brave face on things:
"I must say I'm slightly disappointed with the quality of the tickets myself."
But he added: "I've only seen 15 out of 140,000 so far that I'm unhappy with which is not bad."
It's not clear, though, how many of the 140,000 tickets he's actually seen.
There are plans for a second line of defence:
Enquiry cabins will be placed at each of the seven gates to the festival site at Pilton, Somerset. If there is any doubt over over a ticket-holder's identity, the person will be taken to a cabin for further investigation.
"When they come to the gate we can check the names of the people who have been advertising them so we know who they actually belong to," he said.
Hang about... they're going to be marching people to holding cells in order to force them to prove their identity? Is this a music festival or a dry run for John Reid's wet dreams?
