  1. 1. Following the Oxford Vaccine news will it go ahead?

    • Yes - I 100% believe
      43
    • Yes - I think so but not close to 100%. Need to see how the roll out progresses.
      158
    • Maybe - I'm 50/50
      87
    • Unlikely - Even with the latest news I think it's unlikely to take place
      79
    • No - The vaccine news is great but I can't see 200k people being allowed at Worthy Farm in June.

That's odd he would say it outta nowhere, but even still he is entitled to his opinion

Does make me think wonder if we will get word before a announcement from word getting out they've started asking Artists if they'll play - as it seems McCartney wouldn't

It's not about whether it's 'his opinion'.

Describing Glastonbury as a "Superspreader" event was really tactless especially when so much charity money is riding on the event and, lo, the BBC have turned it into a very negative headline.

And he shouldn't have said it was cancelled either unless he made it clear he was speculating. 

0/10 for tact and diplomacy.

99.99% chance of it, it's better for them if they have the money

Nice, makes sense, I was planning on proposing to my partner at GF20, and it’s slowly slipping away! Just hate the idea of loosing our tickets as she’s wanted to go her whole life!

Fingers crossed

absolutely ... he could potentially do damage to the festival industry and not just Glastonbury in the summer ahead even if Glastonbury tried to go ahead now ... hes caused them issues ... I might give him a ring and see if he can join the resale team as hes doing a job of putting tickets back in the pot for us ...

It’s lose, not loose.

I see people loosing their shit far more than losing their shit these days and it’s got to stop.

By the sounds of it, Macca's heard that the festival's not going ahead next year, but forgot that it hadn't (yet) been made public. An honest mistake.

I know quite a few people in their 20s who’ve had covid and it’s literally a cough for a few days and losing your taste for 5-7 days.

I have no idea if the festival will go ahead next year, yet the last few pages have made Macca sound like a know nothing Italian journalist, who is spreading football transfer rumours on Twitter.

TBH that's what I think.

As he was going to play this year and as G was going to try to roll 2020 headliners over to 2021 Macca is probably more in the loop than most.......

Maybe he knows it’s cancelled and wasn’t speculating? That’s what it sounded like to me, a slip of the tongue.

But if we assume Emily isn't the type to lie, we know that it isn't cancelled from her interview a couple of days ago

I suspect that it hasn’t been cancelled yet, but they know it’s very unlikely to go ahead.  You can tell by the rather downbeat language Emily used that she didn’t want to build up our hopes. Macca will be in the loop and got ahead of himself.

Hmmmmmm..... pinch of salt. But let's see. If it is true, we will know soon enough.

I still don't get why Emily would put that interview out a few days ago. And reading as the first festival of the summer?

The Sun does seem to be more accurate with Glastonbury than it is with most things, but yeah massive pinch of salt with the timing of that following the Macca interview.

I think if it the cancellation rumour whips up at the rate it has been doing today, we should be in for an announcement of sorts  in the not too distant future. It's obviously not good to have such a pronounced question mark over the event when other lineups and stuff are rolling out and people might be thinking of committing their Glasto ticket money to something else.
