Glastonbury resale tickets sold out in 22 minutes yesterday (Sunday), with organisers also announcing a new stage dedicated to South Asian music. 

Fans had one final chance to snap up tickets for this year’s festival in the resale period yesterday morning, though organisers had warned after the payment period that there would be a limited inventory, after the highest-ever percentage of festival-goers paid for their tickets in full.

Earlier in the week, coach resale tickets sold out just as quickly.

The UK’s flagship festival, which takes place at Worth Farm in Somerset, is set to be headlined by two female artists for the first time this year.

Dua Lipa and SZA will headline on Friday and Sunday, while band Coldplay will become the first act to headline the festival five times when they take to the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night. Shania Twain is scheduled to perform during the legends slot on Sunday afternoon.

Last week also saw organisers reveal its first-ever dedicated South Asian stage, which will be named Arrivals. The stage will form part of the late-night Shangri-La area of the festival, and has been designed by a group of South Asian cultural organisations.

Glastonbury will take place from June 26-30.
