Glastonbury 2020 Cancelled - I am sorry to be the bearer of this news.

Recommended Posts

It was beginning to feel inevitable anyway. I expect the rest of the summer will start to cancel as well. Can't see IOW, Download or BST happening now either. R+L may have a stay of execution for a while, but no guarantees.

She actually knows her.

I have no doubt that she does. But surely Micheals daughter knows better than to make statements like that. Her account could have been compromised

So sad ☹️

My first Glasto and you guys on here have had me hyped up like nothing ever before.  This was going to be the best thing ever ... and now its gone.  What a shit year 2020 is turning out to be.

Hopefully see you all on the Farm next year

Why would they make this call so early?

i guess it's just too much work/too many people to put on such a huge festival. They can't wait until a couple of weeks before.

I know you don't want to move onto depression, I get it.

@eFestivals I am happy for this thread and my post on the CV thread to be taken down until we get official word.

Because it's clear from various different angles it couldn't happen.

It sucks, but I'm pleased to have the clarity and begin the grief process :(

It does seem odd that she'd create a graphic like that to announce this, but...

Because they've already started spending money and it's looking incredibly unlikely any kind of festival will be happening all summer.

I'm happy for it to remain if you are...?

It's not really that early though. The govt are talking in terms of months, not weeks for reduced contact. It'll be the pre-event organisation that is affected, even if the lock-down is lifted by festival time. And I expect that tours are being pulled left right and centre now.

They also know people will be getting prepared and buying and booking things so pulling the plug early will stop people losing money

This sort of softens the blow rather than getting the text alert from  "GLASTONBURY OFFICIAL"

You're all still alive and hopefully none of your love ones have been affected in reegards to health issues yet.

Glastonbury does not matter, it really doesn't. Lets all pull through this and we can worry about festivals once it is safe to do so.

Until there is official word this thread should be locked. We don’t know how genuine the post is. It’s a very strange way to announce it. Someone that connected to the festival should understand how social media works and should only communicate through official channels. 

The OP poster is not connected to the festival, she is a friend of Michaels oldest daughter which I know to be true, so no reason why they weren't just chatting. Its not an announcement, but a piece of info the OP has through a conversation

I wasn't able to go this year, but I'm gutted for each of you that had tickets. Really sad news. I hope this doesn't mean the end of the festival.
