The scramble for tickets for this year's festival started at 9am yesterday morning, with the whole allocation of tickets selling in just over 12 hours. Due to the speed with which tickets were sold, some confirmation emails took over 11 hours to be confirmed. For those who want to confirm they have purcahsed tickets, there is a ticket checking facility here.

There will be no more tickets on sale until sometime early in 2010.

Ticket sales were not quite as fast as the 105 minute sell out panic of tickets in 2007, or the two hour ticket sale of 2005, and faster than the 24 hour sell out of 2004. Yesterday's sale mirrors the 2003 sell out of tickets before any of the line-up has been announced. A return to form after last year when tickets took several weeks to sell out, and 2008 where tickets were available right up until the festival.

Registered festival-goers were able to buy up to eight full weekend tickets at a price of £185 or reserve their tickets at a price of £50 per ticket. The balance on these deposits can be paid in full anytime before Sunday 28th February 2010.

Registration will reopen at 9am on Monday 12th October 2009. In order to buy a ticket festival goers must be registered, with online registration only taking a few minutes, this needs to be completed at least 48 hours before trying to buy a ticket.

Everyone aged over 12 on Wednesday 23rd June 2010 (when the Festival starts) who plans to the come the Festival, must register. Children aged 12 and under do not require tickets and do not need to register.

Registration does not reserve or guarantee a ticket. For more details about registering and ticket information click here.

Next year's event will mark the 40th anniversary of the Music and Arts Festival at Worthy Farm, Somerset, where Michael Eavis first opened his gates for business in September 1970.

Expect something like 2,000 performances at 50 or so venues including music, cabaret, theatre, circus, a fantastic Kidz area, poetry, green crafts and information and loads, loads more ... much more than just the music, so make sure you check it all out!

Only one act is confirmed so far, but as usual eFestivals will bring you the very best-sourced rumours, allowing festival-goers to see who is playing long before the bands are formally announced - keep your eyes on the Glastonbury 2010 rumours, updated as we receive information.
