The U.K. festival will celebrate its 50th anniversary next year.

Tickets for next year’s Glastonbury music festival sold out in just 34 minutes, according to a notice posted to the event's website Sunday. 

“Tickets for Glastonbury 2020 have now Sold Out. Thank you to everyone who bought one, and sorry to those who missed out,” the festival posted on Twitter. “There will be a ticket resale in April - plus we'll be announcing details of a special ballot for the sale of 50 pairs of tickets in the coming days.”

Emily Eavis, co-organizer and daughter of Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, took to Twitter to add that more than 2.4 million people registered for tickets. A total of 135,000 passes were available. 

In 2020, Glastonbury will celebrate its 50th anniversary in Somerset, England. Acts have not yet been announced for the iconic festival at Worthy Farm.

Emily Eavis added on social media that the demand for 2020 tickets was higher than ever, but the sell out did not mark a record for the festival. According to The BBC, that record was set in 2015 at 20 minutes.

The five-day festival will mark its milestone anniversary June 24-28, 2020.
