2020 Next Announcement Thread!

One thing I don't understand is why Glastonbury don't open up the balance window earlier or not have one at all. 

I'd have probably paid already and surely the festival would be better off with our money in the bank sooner?

Isn’t it for tax reasons?

April 1st is the new tax year.

Other festivals don’t have deposit schemes and a set window to pay ticket balances.

That said, we’re into March now so not long to go at all.

Lots have monthly payment schemes though which are continuing to take money from people.  They are also smaller festivals where returning all the monies could have even bigger implications on their futures

March 15th: https://theglastonburythingy.weebly.com/when-does.html

I really cant see coronavirus affecting the date that much though, swine flu was at a similar rate in 09/10 and it didn’t seem to affect either of those instalments of the festival from what I’ve looked at. You might be right though, I just hope you aren’t!

Do you think it's because a headliner has dropped out.

And do you think it's to early for the lineup to be dropped.

Can’t imagine any announcements at this point. It may have been scheduled, but I think Coronavirus will push back any announcements until the situation is a bit clearer. 

Surely at this point the festival organising has to proceed as normal? The default is that it will happen, and I can’t see why it wouldn’t other than the government banning large gatherings and hopefully it won’t come to that in the UK.

Entering busy prediction territory next week with 18 nominations in total including coverage on both days of the weekend. Reasonably quiet in this thread the week just gone compared to last but with March now in play can see it getting pretty hot again

Apologies if I have missed anyone off, let me know if you need adding

Ah but they probably don’t bank all the cash until after the window closes.

Every other festival are announcing their lineups.  Why Would Glastonbury Be any different? 

It wouldn't, but not every other festival has a 50+ page thread dedicated to people whipping themselves up into a tizzy about glastonbury maybe being cancelled.

I highly doubt a headliner has dropped out but it’s not impossible.

If you have a look at this website - https://theglastonburythingy.weebly.com/when-does.html - it gives you a list of previous announcement dates so you can kind of make your own assumptions from that. However, last year the first poster was released 15th March, and that was around two weeks earlier than the previous earliest poster drop I think? So realistically we’re at least two weeks away from the lineup. 
Anything could happen though.

Strong advice.

It’s the 6 April but that is for personal tax. Companies can make up accounts to when they like but Glastonbury do make them up to 31 March so I assume this is for tax reasons. You can look at lots of this stuff on companies house if you are so inclined

Glad that one passed me by... the disappointment of seeing that there was an announcement, but then realising it was something so insignificant would have slayed me.

It was the day after the first poster to be fair so an easy one to miss. I can’t remember exactly why they were announced on their own but there must have been a reason behind it, even if it was just that they’d forgotten to include them with the main poster.

It was a weird one, the day after the lineup came out, felt more like they'd forgotten to include them. The link I've got on The Thingy just takes you to an NME article about the lineup and they're included on the bottom of the list.

I believe that more specifically, it's to do with the VAT paid on the tickets vs the festivals outgoings - opening balance payments on April 1st puts the bulk of the income and the bulk of the expenditure in the same VAT quarter which helps with liquidity.
