The 2011 Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts was held from 22–26 June 2011. Tickets for the festival went on sale from 9 am on Sunday 3 October 2010, over 37 weeks before the festival was set to begin, with a deposit of £50 being paid, while the whole cost of a ticket is £195 (+£5 booking fee and postage and packaging).[1]

Ticket sales[edit]

Half the tickets were sold within the first 2 hours[2] and a quarter of the tickets still available by 12pm [3] despite issues with people purchasing tickets.[4] Tickets sold out in 4 hours.

BBC Introducing stage[edit]

The BBC curate a stage at Glastonbury each year showcasing new talent. This year saw performances from Ed Sheeran, F-Block, The Good Natured, Jake Bugg, Sharks Took the Rest, Vessels and Shammi Pithia, amongst others.

Secret gigs[edit]

Secret gigs on the Park Stage saw Radiohead (Friday) and Pulp (Saturday) perform to large crowds.[12][13]

Weather[edit]

The gates opened on Wednesday to rain and heavy showers persisted making the car parks and the festival site a muddy terrain. Dry conditions on the Friday soon made way for yet more rain early afternoon and didn't stop until the Saturday lunchtime. Sunday was non stop sunshine which dried out the site.[14][15][16]

Records[edit]

The 2011 festival also broke two television viewing records. Firstly, 18.6 million viewers tuned in from their own homes throughout the festival. A new record for the BBC. Ratings declined by over 1 million from the 2009 to 2010 festival due to the Fifa World Cup and hot weather. The 2011 Festival saw "plenty of rain and a very muddy Glastonbury", causing ratings to climb over 3 million views from the 2010 to 2011 festival.

Also, headliner Beyoncé's performance, which acted as the finale act to the festival, generated over 2.6 million views individually, breaking the record for most television views for a single performance according the BBC.[17]
