The organiser of legendary English music festival Glastonbury has denied reports ticket sales have been slow due to rapper SHAWN JAY ZCARTER headlining the event.
Last year's (07) festival sold out within hours of tickets going on sale, however this year (08), only 100,000 out of a possible 137,500 had been sold by Sunday (06Mar08) evening.
But organiser Michael Eavis insists adverse weather conditions in previous years could be to blame for the slow-selling tickets.
He says, "In previous years all tickets were sold out within a couple of hours but I think three years of mud may have taken their toll."
Jay-Z's appearance at the more traditionally rock-based Glastonbury was met with a mixed reception when his headline slot was announced last year (07).
But Eavis remained confident of more sales: "That's without them (ticket-buyers) even knowing who's playing - we haven't announced our full line-up yet. People will be astonished, astounded when they see who's playing."
Muse and The Verve are the other two headliners at the Somerset, England event, which takes place 27-29 June (08). The full line-up will be announced on 1 May (08).
