Glastonbury 2021 has been CANCELLED: Is this the end?

In the second bit of unsurprising news, Glastonbury has been axed for the second year in a row, as case rates go up for COVID.

The news was announced as of today via the Worthy Farm official website:

“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.”

Last month, festival owner Michael Eavis had previously warned the festival “would seriously go bankrupt” if they had to cancel again next year. Is this the end for one of the biggest festivals in the world? This does seem unlikely, as this confirmation has been called well in advance to its set date in June, so they seem to have not lost out on expenditure of set up, as such. This also comes when festival organisers and event planners have been asking for an insurance scheme to be in place for cancelled events and gigs, in case they do happen to cancelled a week – or even a day – before they are supposed to go ahead.
