It took just half an hour for 118,200 standard Glastonbury tickets to sell out on Sunday — just long enough to listen to Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” four times.

If you were not lucky enough to push through the crowded website and secure a ticket, do not lose hope yet. There are other ways to visit the festival next June, according to the Telegraph.

While tickets are non-transferable, canceled or returned tickets will become available during an official resale scheduled for spring 2016, according to the festival’s website. The resale for the last festival happened on April 19. But beware, it sold out in 11 minutes.

Organizers warned that no other sites or agencies are allowed to sell tickets, so avoid unofficial or personal sales.

Music lovers who feel charitable can try signing up to attend Glastonbury as a volunteer with Oxfam or WaterAid. And anyone with medical or first aid training should visit Festival Medical Services.

The only other way of getting in without a ticket is to be aged 12 or younger.
