Glastonbury: Introduce a Ballot

Introduce a Ticket Ballot for tickets to Glastonbury Festival to make it a fairer system.

Why is this important?

The current system is skewed towards those who can afford faster broadband, own several devices and live in locations where internet speeds are higher.

Thousands of people reported site crashes on SeeTickets.com whilst inputting their registration or payment information.

Glastonbury Festival was created as a way of bringing people together to share the joy of music and enjoy an atmosphere of unity and love. But with the demand for tickets increasing every year, it has simply become yet another money-making enterprise that skews in favour of the privileged few - including celebrities (from A list down to Z-list) who always get free tickets, and corporate tickets.

A ballot system would enable a fairer distribution of tickets based on luck rather than internet speeds.
