The Glastonbury music festival has been cancelled for a second year running due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. The expected news was confirmed on the Worthy Farm event’s Twitter page.
“With great regret, we must announce that this year’s Glastonbury Festival will not take place,” the tweet read. “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 [Eavis].”
Coverage of the event is always a big draw for the BBC who have a very close relationship with the festival and launched ‘The Glastonbury Experience’ to help plug the scheduling gap in 2020.
