Glastonbury 2021 has been cancelled

The festival will be forced to take a fallow year for the second consecutive year, as the 2020 version of the Somerset based event was also cancelled last March as a result of Covid concerns and restrictions.

Organisers Michael and Emily Eavis took to Twitter to announce the news, writing:

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.

Senior Research Fellow in Global Health at the University of Southampton, Dr Michael Head, told NME:

“We’d want a bare minimum of 50% of the population to be vaccinated [before festivals can happen], but probably more like 60%. That would probably take us towards the end of the summer at around August or September. If you were planning something very large like Glastonbury, I’d probably be waiting until next year for sure.”
