The crowd cheer during an unofficial record-breaking attempt at creating the biggest human peace sign ever, in the Stone Circle field at the Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset. 

Although the line up has yet to be revealed, the annual festival beat it’s sales record.

Returning bigger than ever, 2019’s Glastonbury Festival sold out in half an hour on Sunday (Oct. 7). Organizer Emily Eavis took to Twitter to inform fans and express gratitude.

“Tickets have now all sold out! We are blown away by the huge demand, looks like record numbers tried. Thank you for your patience and incredible support,” she posted, adding that there will be an additional ticket resale in April for those who missed their chance to scoop wristbands.

About 200,000 people are due to attend the June festival in Somerset, although the line up has not been revealed yet.

 

Described as the “largest green-field music and performing arts festival in the world,” Glastonbury didn’t hold a festival in 2018 but the previous 2017 edition included heavyweights like Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Lorde and Justice — with tickets selling out in fifty minutes.
