Glastonbury, the legendary English festival, has officially canceled its 2021 event. In a statement, festival organizers ruled out the possibility of postponing the festival to later in 2021, and are instead looking to 2022. Glastonbury’s website clarifies that people who purchased 2020 tickets may roll over their deposits to the 2022 event or receive a full refund (if requested before September 2021).
The news comes just weeks after Glastonbury co-organizer Emily Eavis publicly denied rumors of a 2021 cancellation. Glastonbury 2020 would have been the storied festival’s 50th anniversary and was set to be headlined by Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar.
