Glastonbury festival 2021 officially cancelled

The organizers Michael and Emily Eavis have officially announced that Glastonbury Festival 2021 has been cancelled. Due to the current pandemic situation, as well as the necessary precautions and safety measures implied, the Festival has been cancelled for the second summer in a row after the 2020 edition was also called off with concerns regarding safety and public health.

On both Twitter and the official festival website, Michael and Emely Eavis announced the news: “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.” The organizers also added that tickets for this year, rolled over from 2020, will still 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. 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!”

The announcement ended with hope that Glastonbury festival will happen again in the future, while also appreciating the continued support: “We thank you for your incredible continued support and let’s look forward to better times ahead.”
