Recommended Posts

I never tell anyone. Then I let them post it in the group because Im too busy reading it 100 times over. Or Im sleeping, cause its 4am right now and as much as I want to stay up for the HYPE, I gotta sleep. Hopefully it's at 7pm and I'll be back awake!

Just had word that the announcement is infact what we feared, its likely to be a cancellation notice to come.

I can't wait for you all to apologise to me when the postponement/cancellation announcement is finally made.

Zoe Ball 1:47:54 in her show today:

"Vampire weekend and happy memories of last spring/summer.  Glastonbury festival, rumours are, maybe, who's playing glastonbury festival might come out today, possibly, who knows. Noel Gallagher's high flying birds before that..."

Did she actually say this?? Then it must be happening!!

Our government isn’t perfect, bit IF the lineup drops today then I’d be confident it would be off the back of consultation with the government that it will be ok to go ahead in June.

We are no doubt heading for a period of social distancing and cancellation of similar events, but there is no way in hell that can or will last for three and a half months.

My unqualified opinion is that they're announcing slightly earlier than they had planned to, because WHO declared a pandemic, triggering the government into the next phase which will put social distancing and potential mass gathering cancellations back in the news, just a little too close to balance payment week for comfort.

So they're jumping the gun to get the message out that they intend to hold it, pending any government decision not to, before the headlines turn too dire and potentially put ticket sales in doubt (which seems extraordinary, but isn't beyond the realms of possibility).

I'd be surprised if any poster didn't come attached to a statement assuring people of all the usual stuff.

I follow agonising amounts of build up on here for months, look away for 30 seconds and some one always pops up in the group chat with a "oh hey look guys the line up just dropped how random lol"

 

Edit: not that I do this for them or credit anyways, I just enjoy reading the deranged messages of people ripping their hair out.

She seemed like she was gagging to say more about it.

Why would Zoe Ball know though?

Radio 2 djs seem to be best mates of the Eavis family. It’s always them lot who let it slip.

You may well be right, I’m just guessing myself. It may also be that I’m very naive, but I just can’t see how this wouldn’t a coordinated response... I’ve no basis for this but I would assume not just Glastonbury, but people in charge of all events scheduled would’ve been on at the government for a bit of guidance. Glastonbury would probably be the least affected by this, but there must be events that could be completely crippled either way, do they plough on? Do they cut their losses?

Again I might be very naive in my thinking, but I find it hard to imagine the government would just completely ignore any such enquires. My completely unqualified opinion is that they have plan which was always going to happen when the case numbers hit a certain level, that will be implemented for a certain period of time all based on their in depth modelling. I think behind the scenes events like Glastonbury will have been involved, some will have been told they won’t be going ahead and some will be told they are fine.

I just can’t see Glastonbury dropping the poster on the same day the Government switch to the delay stage without some prior consultation.

Any chance of a transcript for those pretending to work?
