GLASTONBURY Festival has been cancelled for the second year running due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The announcement came today via the Worthy Farm events page: "With great regret we must announce that this year's Glastonbury Festival will not take place, this will be another enforced fallow year for us. Tickets for this year will roll over to next year. Michael & Emily."
The full statement goes on to confirm that anyone with a ticket has now been offered the opportunity to roll their £50 deposit over to next year, when the festival will hopefully resume.
Michael Eavis has said that Glastonbury lost 'millions' when it was forced to cancel in 2020 and had previously warned the festival could go bankrupt if they were forced to cancel this year. However, they have since told the BBC that scenario is unlikely 'as long as we can make a firm call either way in advance'.
