Glastonbury tickets on eBay after all

No primary category set

Glastonbury GalleryThe BBC report that Glastonbury tickets have found their way onto eBay, despite organisers’ efforts to stop the secondary market. Festival owner Michael Eavis introduced photographs onto this year’s tickets in an attempt to stop their resale, but has admitted that he is “disappointed” with the quality of the printing. He said, though, that anyone buying the tickets was taking “a huge risk”, as any ticket thought to have the wrong details will be rejected and the holder not allowed in to the Festival: “I have people watching eBay so we will have their information”.

At time of writing there are several tickets for sale on the site, with canny sellers advertising tickets for “female with long hair”, and showing shots of the ticket photo in the Gallery picture.

  1. Has anyone seen or heard a sensible explanation against the resale of event tickets?

  2. Well, the closest I’ve ever seen is that it “hurts genuine fans” by pricing tickets out of their reach. On that basis, I would have thought all tickets, CDs, DVDs etc. etc. should be free; by charging for music, the band themselves put themselves out of reach of their poorest but most genuine fans ]:)
