The first set of tickets for next year's Glastonbury Festival have sold out.

The 15,000 coach and ticket packages went on sale at 6pm on 3 October and sold out in half an hour.

The news was confirmed on Glastonbury Festival's official Twitter page where people were also reminded that another 120,000 tickets for the festival will go on Sunday 6 October.

Prices for the 2014 event have been increased to £210 plus a booking fee.

Last month, festival organiser Michael Eavis said they won't beat this year's festival.

The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys and Mumford and Sons headlined the event at Worthy Farm this summer.

He added: "[It's] downhill all the way now. I've had 44 years of an incredible career and we're still milking the old cows as well."

When asked about who would be headlining Glastonbury in 2014 Michael Eavis said people wouldn't be surprised.

"Pretty obvious isn't it?" he said. "There aren't many left. It's the process of elimination isn't it?

"I think we've got three or four really good ones lined up for next year and we're sorting out 2015 as well."

There is speculation about who will play at Worthy Farm between 26 and 29 June next year.

David Bowie is one of the bookies' favourites to headline, an Oasis reunion and a set from Foo Fighters have also been rumoured.

The remaining tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2014 go on sale at 9am on Sunday 6 October.
