Co-founder of the festival Ben Robinson said: “The team are truly humbled by the reaction to this years line up and we’d like to thank everyone who has bought tickets to make this our 12th successive sell out!

“We’ll be keeping our heads down over the next six months working hard to make this the best festival possible. We have a lot more amazing artists and field based antics still to announce so keep your eyes peeled. We can’t wait to see everyone in the fields.”

If you’ve missed out though there’s still a way in to the festival on Thursday 27 July to Sunday 30 July.

Inevitably some people who have bought tickets can’t go so tickets are returned.
