The Guardian festival blog: Glastonbury tickets for 2019 sell out in half an hour | Music


Tickets for Glastonbury 2019 sold out half an hour after going on sale as record numbers of people attempted to buy one, the festival organisers have said.

Standard tickets were released just after 9am on Sunday and the official Glastonbury Twitter account said it was experiencing “incredible demand” within minutes. The festival’s co-organiser Emily Eavis announced at 9.36am that the sale was over.

“Tickets have now all sold out! We are blown away by the huge demand, looks like record numbers tried. Thank you for your patience and incredible support and for those of you who missed out, there will be a ticket resale in April,” she tweeted.

The Guardian festival blog: Trainee nurses given 500 free tickets to Glastonbury 2019 amid staffing crisis | Music


Glastonbury festival founder Michael Eavis is to give away up to 500 tickets for the 2019 event to trainee nurses in the Mendip area, where the festival is based.

Speaking at Shepton Mallet’s summer fete in July, Eavis said he made the decision following a conversation with the local NHS trust chairman, who had complained about a lack of trainees.

The tickets are available to Mendip-area students who are enrolled on a nursing course this year, according to a statement on the Glastonbury festival’s website. A spokesperson for the festival told the Guardian that, as well as a gesture of support for the NHS, Eavis wants the initiative to encourage more people to take up the profession.
