Restrict tickets to four each?

I see that tickets to the Glastonbury Festival sold out in an hour and 40 minutes.

And that once again, the sales were all made online, giving anyone who may not have access to that facility no chance of buying one.

As the number of tickets is limited, perhaps it maybe fairer if in future, sales were restricted to four, half the current number?

I mentioned shortly after the last festival that free Sunday tickets should be available to those residents of Glastonbury town that want one; but nothing seems to have changed.

Saint Michael Eavis and Princess Emily give no recognition to Glastonbury residents who have to suffer travel disruption and other disturbance whenever the festival takes place, and they use our town's name, too!

Plenty of money is made at festival time; hopefully the organisers shall pass some of it around and be a little more charitable.

    I was gutted to not be able to make it this year and I tried online from the moment they went on sale. I never got as far as putting in my details. I agree with you that they should limit the tickets to 4 per registered user and I can understand your aggrievement from a local point of view, but I feel it is unfair to knock the Glastonbury organisers for being uncharitable. To me knowledge, they are the most generous festival going. Alan
