Michael's non-plussed about ticket sales
Glastonbury ticket sale still on
Did you want to register for a ticket to this year's music festival? Organisers Emily and Michael Eavis have re-opened the registration to encourage more buyers, after experiencing slower than usual ticket sales.
Last year Glastonbury tickets sold out within two hours, leaving organisers baffled as to why they haven't done the same this year.
Tickets went on sale at 9am on Sunday and again on Monday. Approximately 100,000 of the 137,000 tickets have now been sold.
But it's the first time since the metal fence was installed in 2002 that the event has failed to sell out in two days.
On Monday Michael Eavis defended claims that people are turned off by the headline act American rapper Jay-Z.
He said bad weather was probably putting people off instead after the mud baths in three consecutive festivals.
It is only the second year that pre-event registration has been in place. Emily Eavis said there was a massive influx of people complaining they hadn't been able to register their details. Could that be the reason why festival demand has been slow to pick up?
