Glastonbury 2020 festival cancelled due to coronavirus pandemic

The festival was set to take place June 24th to 28th

Another one bites the dust. Glastonbury has cancelled its upcoming festival, which was set to take place from June 24th to 28th, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Recently, the festival revealed the three headliners were supposed to be Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift and Paul McCartney. The first line-up was released March 12th, and confirmed artists like Thom Yorke, Robyn, Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney, Diana Ross, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Angel Olsen, London Grammar, Anderson .Paak and more were set to make an appearance.

A statement from Michael and Emily Eavis explained that this wasn’t how they wanted the 50th anniversary of the festival to play out but “following the new government measures announced this week – and in times of such unprecedented uncertainty – this is now our only viable option.”
