Organisers of the U.Ok.’s Glastonbury Pageant have cancelled its 2021 version because of the Covid-19 pandemic for the second yr operating.
The long-lasting music occasion, held yearly at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England, won’t go forward, organisers Michael and Emily Eavis introduced on the competition’s Twitter account.
“With nice remorse, we should announce that this yr’s Glastonbury competition won’t happen, and that this might be one other enforced fallow yr for us,” they stated. “Regardless of our efforts to maneuver heaven and earth, it has turn out to be clear that we merely will be unable to make the competition occur this yr. We’re so sorry to allow you to all down.”
They confirmed that as with final yr, anybody with a ticket has now been supplied the chance to roll their deposit over to subsequent yr, when the competition will hopefully resume.
The dad and daughter duo added they have been “very assured we will ship one thing actually particular for us all in 2022”.
Final yr’s 50th-anniversary occasion was meant to be headlined by Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar, but it surely was cancelled throughout the preliminary U.Ok. lockdown in March 2020.
