Glasto, See Tickets And The Nightmares Of 'Ticket Day'

It is now two and a half hours since Glastonbury tickets went on sale.

I'm still trying to get a ticket.  As, by the looks of the top trending #glasto and #seetickets on Twitter are quite a few other people.  Each stage of the ticket buying process seems to crash as the servers get overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the traffic.

This happens every year and it's a complete nightmare.  Seetickets have had this gig for years and the service doesn't seem to get any better.

Surely Seetickets can do better than this.  Maybe they could improve their systems to accommodate more traffic.  Ticketmaster (despite their hideous booking fees) doesn't seem to have this problem for massive gigs.

It isn't as though the volume of traffic is taking Seetickets by surprise.

I'm keeping on trying.  Good luck to everybody in the great rush for tickets.  It will be worth it.
