Glastonbury has been cancelled for the second year running due to the coronavirus pandemic. “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,” organizers Emily and Michael Eavis wrote in a statement. “We thank you for your incredible support and let’s look forward to better times ahead.”
The organizers also noted that tickets for this year, rolled over from 2020, will remain valid for the 2022 festival. “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,” the statement continues. “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!”
Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, and Paul McCartney were set to headline the festival in 2020. No lineup for Glastobury’s 2022 edition has yet been announced.
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. Tickets for this year will roll over to next year. Full statement below and on our website. Michael & Emily pic.twitter.com/SlNdwA2tHd
