Glastonbury 2020 Officially Cancelled Due To Coronavirus

Published: Wednesday 18th Mar 2020 by Sam

Coronavirus has claimed its latest victim on the live music circuit – Glastonbury 2020.

Full story below…

Despite a defiant pledge to continue on just last week, organizers for the world-renown UK festival have pivoted and decided to cancel.

A statement issued moments ago read:

“Clearly this was not a course of action we hoped to take for our 50th anniversary event, but following the new government measures announced this week — and in times of such unprecedented uncertainty, this is now our only viable option.

We very much hope that the situation in the U.K. will have improved enormously by the end of June. But even if it has, we are no longer able to spend the next three months with thousands of crew here on the farm, helping us with the enormous job of building the infrastructure and attractions needed to welcome more than 200,000 people to a temporary city in these fields.”

Originally to take place June 24th-28th, Glasto was scheduled to be headlined by acts including Kendrick Lamar, Diana Ross, and Taylor Swift. It’ll now return in 2021.

Tickets will roll-over to next year, with fans who made £50 deposits able to use that towards next year too.

    Like seriously. Is there any point continuing to report that all public gatherings related to music are can cancelled?

    Maybe report on who ISN’T cancelling. That would be news worth reading about in more detail ???
