Glastonbury festival sells out
Glastonbury festival takes place at the end of June in Somerset

Glastonbury organisers have announced that the festival is now sold out.

The final tickets for this year's event were quickly snapped up this morning [2 February].

The line up is yet to be confirmed but the festival will take place between 26-28 June.

In a statement Emily Eavis said: "We're chuffed to bits that we've managed to sell so many tickets so far ahead, especially when you look at the weather outside."

The organiser added: "Thanks to everyone for keeping the faith; it's certainly shaping up to be another vintage year for Glastonbury Festival, with a brilliant line up to be unveiled in June."

Glastonbury launched a deposit scheme in October 2008 which saw the majority of the tickets for this year's weekender snapped up.

Many bands have already been rumoured to appear including Bruce Springsteen, Blur, Neil Young, Vampire Weekend, Lily Allen and Anvil.

There will a very limited number of cancelled tickets made available on 5 April.
