PARIS (Reuters) - See Tickets, the ticket sales business of French media conglomerate Vivendi, notched up record sales for next year’s Glastonbury music festival, Vivendi said on Tuesday.

Tickets for Glastonbury 2019 sold out half an hour after going on sale as record numbers of people attempted to buy one, the festival organizers have said.

“Tickets have now all sold out! We are blown away by the huge demand, looks like record numbers tried,” wrote festival organizer Emily Eavis over the weekend.

Recent headliners at Glastonbury have included Radiohead and grime artist Stormzy.
