Glastonbury has officially cancelled their festival for the second year in a row due to COVID-19.
The cancelled event, which was set for June 23rd to 27th, marks the first time ever that that Glastonbury Festival will skip consecutive years. Like last year’s cancellation, ticket-holders are once again able to roll over their deposit to guarantee a chance to secure tickets for the 2022 festival.
“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,” Glastonbury organizers Emily and Michael Eavis explain. “We thank you for your incredible support and let’s look forward to better times ahead.”

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 pic.twitter.com/SlNdwA2tHd
