In an ominous sign that it will be a very long time before the live music business gets back to any form or sense of normality, it has been announced that this year’s rescheduled Glastonbury festival, which had been due to take place from 23 – 27 June, has been cancelled.
In a statement, festival organizers Michael and Emily Eavis said:
“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.”
Further details on rolling over tickets, refunds and other info can be found on Glastonbury’s official website.
