    I want to know the percentage of people that bought their ticket after putting down the 50 pound deposit. To me that article just says that 137,000 people put down a deposit. How many people followed through? "Most people"? What like half?

    good point

    I bet secondary sellers have bought a shit load. The two times I got mine were mid to late spring and there wasnt any rush.

    You had to pay off the balance (125) on February 1st. So when they say they've sold out, everyone has now put down the full price of the ticket.

    Bruce Springsteen to Headline Glastonbury Festival in Britain
    By Dave Itzkoff

    Chang W. Lee/The New York Times
    Hey, remember Bruce Springsteen? He’ll be headlining one night of the Glastonbury festival in England.

    He may have been snubbed by the Oscars, but Bruce Springsteen can nonetheless take comfort this summer in the arms of thousands of mud-caked British concertgoers: he has been named one of the headliners of the Glastonbury Festival, the event’s promoters announced on its Web page, www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk. Mr. Springsteen, whose title track from the Darren Aronofsky film “The Wrestler” wasn’t even nominated in the Academy Awards’ best song category, will receive top billing at the festival on June 27; the full festival runs from June 24 through 28 in England’s Somerset County. Though Glastonbury has traditionally been a showcase for homegrown rock bands like Oasis, Coldplay and Radiohead, the festival has gradually expanded its boundaries; its Saturday night headliner in 2008 was Jay-Z. For stateside fans, Mr. Springsteen will also be appearing at the Bonnaroo festival, which runs from June 11 to 14 in Manchester, Tenn.

    Not feasible. The tickets are printed with a photo -- to even register, you have to provide contact details and photo -- and that has to match your ID when you arrive.

    Blur to headline Glastonbury Festival
    United Kingdom | 26 February 2009
    Blur are set to headline this year's Glastonbury Festival, Michael Eavis has let slip.
    The event's organiser accidentally revealed that the reformed Britpoppers will perform at the festival at last night's (25 February) NME Awards.

    Blur frontman Damon Albarn and guitarist Graham Coxon performed 'This Is A Low' at the ceremony, prompting BBC 6Music to ask Eavis if they are playing at this year's festival.

    He replied: "Can look forward to that, yeah. But it's not offcially announced yet. There's a bit more work to do on that yet. But you will not be disappointed, I can assure you."

    Bruce Springsteen is also confirmed for the Somerset event, with Neil Young widely rumoured to be the third headliner.

    Click here to see the latest Glastonbury rumours.

    Glastonbury Festival 2009 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton in Somerset from 24-28 June.

    Tickets for the event have sold out but there will be a limited number of returned tickets on sale from 5 April, but those wishing to buy returns must register by 31 March.

    When tickets go back on-sale in April, how fast will those sell out? I am considering hitting Europe instead of Japan since the Glastonbury lineup is shaping up to be better than Fuji Rock's. On one hand, I want to visit Japan the most, but on the other hand, Europe would be a lot cheaper ($550 roundtrip flight vs $1250 for Japan). Argh, indecision 2009.

    Edit: that $550 airfare seems to have disappeared...

    very fast. in order to buy a ticket, you have to be registered on their site. you will have to submit a photo that they will print on your ticket. good luck.

    550 each way maybe. I'm about to book a flight in June and it's going to be 1040 round trip. you'll be hard pressed to find anything cheaper than that.

    I think they were thinking about it but I get the impression they aren't going to this year. Anyone know for sure?

    And I just found a $570 airfare on expedia. LAX to LON departing June 13, returning July 1. The thing that makes it ridiculous is that ALL these sub-$600 airfares require a 12 hour layover in Philadelphia. WTF? 12 hours???

    Yeah, apparently pacing around an airport for 12 hours powers a gigantic gas-generating machine.

    And you'd think a direct flight from Philly would be even cheaper, but, nope. Much more.

    boourns, u may want to wait on getting the airfare. most airlines haven't put their summer sales out yet. just stay on top of it, and you should be able to pull round trip for $7-$800 to one of the London airports. Either that or fly into a Euro city and just hop over on Raynair or something like that.

    also boourns make sure those fares you're looking at include all fees. the ticket I'm looking at has a base fare (round trip) of $658. taxes and fees are an additional $382.13. that's almost 60%.

    and we thought ticketmaster were bad.
