What’s going on?

Ticket prices for Glastonbury keep going up. According to the official site, they are now going to be £105 plus booking fee. Funny, after the license was approved they said they’d be the same price as last year (£97). About a week later this went up to £100, and now it’s £105… Tickets don’t go ...
