Glastonbury 2021 has been cancelled
According to a statement posted on Glastobury’s official website, the festival will no longer be going ahead in 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The statement reads: “With great regret, we must announce that this year’s Glastonbury Festival will not take place, and that this will be another enforced fallow year for us.
“In spite of our efforts to move Heaven & Earth, it has become clear that we simply will not be able to make the Festival happen this year. We are so sorry to let you all down.
“As with last year, we would like to offer all those who secured a ticket in October 2019 the opportunity to roll their £50 deposit over to next year, and guarantee the chance to buy a ticket for Glastonbury 2022. We are very appreciative of the faith and trust placed in us by those of you with deposits, and we are very confident we can deliver something really special for us all in 2022!
“We thank you for your incredible continued support and let’s look forward to better times ahead.”
It’s signed by organisers Michael and Emily Eavis. The cancellation follows speculation as to when the UK music industry will be able to reopen, and raises questions about whether other summer festivals in the country will have to follow suit.
This is a breaking story – more details to come as it develops.
