I understand there are far fewer tickets than demand, but when your systems can’t handle payments properly and fail authorised payments, it does really piss people off!

Sixth year running I haven’t been able to secure tickets at either the general sale or resale. It’s beyond a joke now. I’m heartbroken. What am I doing wrong @glastonbury @emilyeavis?

Some fans reported issues, saying that when they thought they’d been successful for tickets, they received an email from See Tickets informing them they’d purchased a water bottle and not a ticket.

@seetickets I bought a ticket for Glastonbury but it seems to have just been a water bottle?! What the hell lads??

@seetickets I purchased my tickets and I have just been sent a link saying I have bought a water bottle! Please can you sort me out?

@glastonbury @seetickets thought we’d secured tickets this morning. Seems all we got were water bottles and event insurance. How do we get refunds please?

— Stephen Mullan (@Stephen_73) March 27, 2022

Just water bottles and refund protection but no tickets??

This year’s festival, which will be held from June 22-26, has already sold out after deposits that were initially paid for Glastonbury 2020 were rolled over for a second year following the cancellation of the 2021 festival.

Anyone who had paid a deposit had until March 7 to pay off the remaining balance (£230 + £5 booking fee).

However, any returned tickets became available over the two re-sale events.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar will headline Glastonbury 2022, alongside the previously announced Billie Eilish.

A host of other big names have also been confirmed, including the likes of Lorde, Foals, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Sam Fender, Megan Thee Stallion, Charli XCX, Arlo Parks, Haim, Blossoms, Beabadoobee, Olivia Rodrigo, Girl In Red, Megan Thee Stallion, Fontaines D.C., Elbow, Pet Shop Boys, Phoebe Bridgers, IDLES, St. Vincent, Wolf Alice, Self Esteem, Sleaford Mods, Turnstile and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Diana Ross was previously confirmed for this year’s Sunday ‘Legends’ slot.

Earlier this year, Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis said: “We’re going to run a really brilliant show this year, and it’s going to be the best show ever I’m quite sure.”

“People are so excited to come back… they’re really looking forward to coming back… it’s going to be quite the exceptional event,” he said before revealing that the headliners for the festival were in place for the next two years.
