England’s Glastonbury Festival is returning this summer after a year off, and when resale tickets went on sale yesterday, tickets sold out in just a mere 23 minutes.

The festival previously announced that it was shutting down legal resale in favor of a capped marketplace. Festivalgoers had to secure their spot at the fest by registering beforehand to “prevent ticket touts.” Each ticket needed to include a photograph of the registered ticket holder to ensure that the photographed person was entering the festival grounds with a specific registration number.

When tickets originally went on sale, they sold out so fast, leaving many fans frustrated.

Earlier this week, organizer Emily Eavis revealed that a resale for unwanted tickets would take place this Sunday, April 28, and some tickets with Coach travel would be up-for-grabs on April 25. She admitted that “it’s been a bit of a scramble” ahead of the fest, which is typical after a year off.

“We haven’t got loads to sell, so I think we should probably let people know that now, but it’s always really worth a go,” she told BBC Radio 2. “We don’t want to put people off.”

A small amount of returned coach packages were available for resale yesterday, which took place through SeeTickets’ Fan to Fan program, and fans were left annoyed once again as they were unable to secure tickets. Many took to social media to explain how they had already entered their information before the site kicked them out, noting that their desired package was already sold out.

Resale tickets will be available again this Sunday, April 28 at 9 a.m. BST, but fans can only receive tickets if they pre-registered for the event last year.

The festival, set to run from June 26 to 30 at Worthy Farm, includes headlining sets from The Killers, The Cure, Stormzy, Kylie, Janet Jackson, Tame Impala, George Ezra, Liam Gallagher, and Miley Cyrus. Additional previously-announced acts include The Chemical Brothers, Vampire Weekend, Ms Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae, Hozier, Bastille, Two Door Cinema Club, Snow Patrol, and Billie Eilish, among others. More acts are set to be announced in the coming weeks.
