  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.

I smell at least one inconsistency - why would Macca know of it before the decision had been made in earnest today? They wouldn't be saying anything categorical unless and until they'd actually decided, surely.

Also, why would somebody not on the payroll be informed of such a momentous decision, presumably immediately after it had been made, given it's not yet mid-morning in the UK?

I mean who knows, maybe whoever it is is actually clued in. Maybe he's guessing and he'll coincidentally be right. I'd just need more than an anonymous Twitter account to be sure.

Interesting note on the headliner, praying it's McCartney but not holding out much hope. Think Paul will be 80 by then? I remember an interview somewhere not long back where he said he wouldn't be surprised if he's played as last gig, with all this shit going on. Grim.

Reg should have finished bleeding every little village in the entire world dry of cash by that point, so maybe he'd step in?

What I don't understand is why that account tweeted The Sun article saying to ignore it then 2 days later posts this, seems very strange.

I guess if their intention was to be a troll, they’d have to debunk the Sun saying it was cancelled so they could do the trolling in the first place.

The thing that gets me is if the festival is cancelled, it makes complete logical sense as GFL are protecting themselves from losing millions again. With the new strain detected in South East UK and countries also closing borders to the UK, it just seems to make sense.

I very much hope I'm wrong as we can't verify the authenticity of the source. But hopefully if the account gains attention of the media it will get the Festival to give us a (positive or negative) update. Maybe this will get us some official news.

The account also isn't all doom and gloom (rolling over tickets, streaming plans etc) which makes me wonder if it is a troll. Normally they try and paint a much more negative picture.

i kind of think this new strain may improve the chances a tiny bit, or at least not make tons of impact. its going to mean proper lockdown and lower cases and the travel bans will mean that less international transmission will take place. vaccines will get in no doubt, i'd have though they fly most of them in but i am sure they will be allowed to skip all the queues etc. its going to be a shit few months but i think on the other side the chances of 2021 going ahead will look quite similar to what they did about 1-2 weeks ago

A harsh lockdown in January is what we need to get cases back under control while the vaccine is rolled out. 
 

Summer 21 will be business as usual.
