Former Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries is among thousands of hopefuls lining up online to buy tickets for next year’s Glastonbury festival.
rganisers revealed that the ticket and coach packages for the 2023 festival sold out within half an hour, after opening at 6pm on Thursday.
Ms Dorries tweeted her frustration with the notoriously hard-to-buy tickets, sharing a photo of her own computer screen.
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try , try, try, try, try… Again,” she wrote.
It is uncertain whether the MP and former cabinet minister, who favors the privatization of Channel 4, will succeed.
At 6:23pm on Thursday, Glastonbury’s official account posted: “Glastonbury 2023 coach + ticket packages on sale tonight are now sold out.
“Thanks to everyone who bought one. Standard tickets go on sale at 9am GMT on Sunday morning (and @nationalexpress will provide coach travel for standard ticket holders from across the UK). “
In 2019, the festival announced at 6:27pm that coach tickets were sold out for Glastonbury 2020.
The festival celebrates its 50th anniversary this summer after the coronavirus pandemic forced cancellations twice.
Standard tickets for 2023 will go on sale on Sunday, November 6 at 9am.
