I'm in money trouble, and can't afford the ticket before the 1st of june - am I screwed or do you think I can make it, considering previous years sold out-dates (which I'm not familiar with..)?
Thanks for your help!
It hasn't sold out before June 1 since 1996 (*), so I'd think you're safe
Although, never say never - this year, the festival likes to repeat how the ticket sale is going "exceedingly well" (which baffles me to be honest), so could turn out a (major) surprise.
Note, though, that it has
in recent years sold out right on the 1st (2004 and 2007). Last year it sold out on June 18.
*) Which is also the only year ever
that it sold out before June (there was no roof on tickets until 1995, so couldn't sell out before then). And some might say that the quick sell out in 1996 was mainly due to ticket touts, who thought it would be great business after the first, 1995, sell-out.
