Glastonbury 2021 is now cancelled


It’s hardly the biggest surprise that one of the biggest festivals in the world at Worthy Farm is not going to take place in June this year.

The announcement went out on Glastonbury’s socials:

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

As listed, deposits paid can be transferred to 2022.

It’s not the biggest surprise but it is still a blow to the live music industry worldwide. There were rumours, started by Mel C of the Spice Girls, who let it slip earlier this month that the festival would not be going ahead.

The Night Time Industries Association in the UK commented that the decision “will be devastating for festival goers and businesses looking at the summer season, and the opportunity to trade in 2021. The Government must recognise the impact of the negligible levels of support given to the festival and events sector, and work through a solution that will safeguard the sector, and allow the 2021 festival and events season to take place across the UK”
