UK Glastonbury Festival Also Canceled in 2021 Due to Corona Crisis
Glastonbury, one of the biggest music festivals in Britain and by extension Europe, will be cancelled again in 2021 due to the corona pandemic. The organization has announced this.
“With pain in our heart we have to announce that the edition will also not take place in 2021”, it says in a statement. “The corona pandemic continues to cause too much uncertainty.”
The previous edition was also cancelled due to the coronavirus. According to the organization, 135,000 people have paid in advance for a 50-pound ticket. They can use the ticket next year or get the amount back. The 50th edition of Glastonbury would take place in 2020.
Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift, among others, were on the line-up for the end of June. Paul McCartney was announced as the headlining act.
Earlier, Emily Eavis, a co-organizer of the festival, expressed all her doubts about organizing the 2021 edition. “I don’t know if there is anything we can do to ensure that 200,000 people can come by June 2021, who spend six days packed together in some fields,” she told the BBC.
