Organisers have hailed the early release of tickets to next year's festival a success after half the total places available were snapped up.

Tickets went on sale yesterday morning, six months earlier than usual, and more than 68,500 were sold over the course of the day. Glastonbury spokesman John Shearlaw said demand for tickets had "dropped off" by around 7pm, but the sales lines would remain open for another week before the next sale date of April 6.

Organisers wanted to avoid the same fate as last year, when tickets had not sold out by the time the festival began. Bad weather and competition from other festivals were thought to be to blame, though many felt the premature leaking of the headline acts, including rapper Jay-Z, had caused sales to suffer.

Michael Eavis wanted to introduce a new ticket system he felt would give festival fans an equal chance of attending. Unlike previous years, there is no limit to the amount of tickets one person can purchase.

Shearlaw told Associated Press: "We are very calm about it - it's a vote of confidence. While its been too early for some people, our regulars, like students, obviously see it as a good deal to put £50 now and pay the rest later. We are pretty chuffed."
