Although less of a nightmare than in previous years, it still seems from Twitter that the Glastonbury ticket process is still a rotten, tumbling mess:
# Wasted a Sunday morning trying to book my lad a Glastonbury ticket. Think he may have just got 1 via a mate. The booking system is shite.@JackHCarter:
@glastofest oh great thanks, the bloody See tickets website is still not working #glastonburysucks 10 minutes ago via web in reply to glastofest
@glastofest errrno, it times out. it's a useless, frustrating system. No worries though, you'll sell all the tickets!! about 3 hours ago via web in reply to glastofest
trying get a glastonbury ticket takes the PISS@newmusicdave:
Sold out! Never even got on the website. That's 2 yrs in a row now. Waste of time #GlastonburyHow many years now have they been selling exclusively online, and they still can't get the system to work properly?
See tickets have indeed let us down today I'm sorry but there will be another sale of cancelled tickets in 2011. Still some left now thoughIf even Michael Eavis, a man who can't see a mudbath without pointing out the rejuvenating properties of Somerset clay, is saying Seetickets isn't up to the job, why are Glastonbury still using them?
[UPDATE: Oh. That turns out not to be an actual Michael Eavis account. Sorry; thanks to the comments which pointed that out.]
