Tickets for the 2014 Glastonbury Festival have sold out in record time.

Approximately 120,000 tickets went on sale at 9am this morning (October 6) priced at £210 plus a £5 booking fee.

The event's Twitter feed confirmed that the tickets sold out in just one hour, 27 minutes.

Organisers Michael and Emily Eavis published a note thanking those who bought tickets for next June's event, while saying they are sorry to anyone who missed out on buying tickets.

They said: "We have, once again, been been blown away by the numbers of people who were hoping to join us at the Festival, and we're sorry that many of you have missed out on a ticket."

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis recently revealed that the headliners for Glastonbury 2014 "are more or less in place", adding that they are acts who haven't topped the bill before.

Last year, Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons headlined the legendary festival.
