Saying it couldn’t work with just British acts is a bit like saying you couldn’t make it work with an all British crowd. 

Re iterates my view that some people just want to say they have seen Taylor Swift , Billie E &  Lady Gaga and then instagram the fact.

One of my best ever nights was Faithless into Coldply in 2002 and i was not a Coldplay fan.

Well that was obviously going to happen. Im quite bewildered people here are so surprised and gutted. Is there no other meaning to your lives? Might be time to find some. 

I think you ought to watch your language.  To the rest of you- welcome to the real world. The world where there is a pandemic and over 100,000 people were never, ever going to allowed to camp on

Unlikely. I for one (and i know a thing or two about how festivals are run) am doubtful it will even happen in 2022, and furthermore the licensing conditions if it does go ahead will be far, far more

Personally, I think the biggest change is going to be countries realising that things need to be more local and less globalised.

Oddly enough, part of the Trump & Brexit agendas - which is pretty scary. But thankfully for different reasons.

 

Things are changing all the time anyhow.

How much they've changed is pointed out to me every day, when I log on here and see there's a "getting fit" topic and not a "getting wasted" topic. 😛 

I dont think thats the case at all. We're too interconnected as a society and i dont think this virus is going to change that.

I'm not saying we won't stay interconnected, I'm saying that countries have woken up to the fact that they need to be more self-sufficient in some areas.

For example, PPE. It's no good relying on China for supplies, if at the time we're most desperate for supplies they can't supply.

Human beings have basic needs and wants which have not changed in our entire history and will not change going forward.

You’re right, I mean how long has the Stone Circle been there?

People have been getting twatted at Glastonbury for millennia.

I’ve said similar before and the answer is no. People are already living for 2022. Literally wishing years away for 5 days at a festival. It’s insane on here.

Yesterday’s news was disappointing as it was expected. I am optimistic moving forward though, today I ran a Covid clinic immunising 400 people and the same is going on every day, all over the country. I think next winter will be much better than this and life will be much closer to ‘normal’ next year.

Who, exactly is wishing their life away? People on her generally love Glastonbury, but also have lives in between time, global pandemics permitting of course.

You’ll find that on here, most people also go to multiple gigs and other festivals throughout the year, they might even go on a holiday or two, regularly see their friends etc etc etc, you know, live their lives.

Don’t want to break the bad news to you but the Glastonbury stone circle isn’t neolithic. It was constructed around 1992

1992 feels like millenia ago.

Ridiculous isnt it? A global pandemic with millions dead across the world, yet it appears many posters on here are only bothered about missing out on the cider bus or whether their tickets will be rolled over to next year. I suppose it must be nice for folk to only be worried about such things in the current situation. I wonder how many would give up their tickets to NHS staff or key workers to let them have a weekend to let their hair down after the horrors they have had to work through in the last year. Probably very, very few. 

Definitely not this guy, who portrays himself as some kind of Glastonbury expert, yet thinks the stone circle has been around for millennia, when it was deliberately built relatively speaking a few years ago 🙄

I can’t imagine anyone here is wishing their life away. Doesn’t stop us looking forward to the next one we get to go to though. I don’t know why you’re surprised that the contributors of a Glastonbury Festival forum look forward to going to the Glastonbury Festival. 🤔

ha ha I don;t think anyone is wishing their lives away but you are on a Glastonbury forum 🙂 , hence to be here and interacting when there's not been a festival for 18 months you've got to love it and its ok to be looking forward to brighter times 🙂

What a strange comment. Odd world you must live in where you never look forward to anything. Odd

I know not everyone is in the same financial position but I would be happy to kick in more for a ticket. Maybe they could do a special edition ticket where you paid more money and got T-shirt, reusable cup extra as a one time thing to just raise extra funds?

Throw in a limited edition 2021 wristband and they'd be flying off the shelves/online delivery storage areas.

Nobody thinks that, it’s a question of what impact the vaccinations have.

There is a good chance vaccinations will at some point bring hospitalisations down to very low levels, it’s at that point that people hoped festivals would/will be possible.

Obviously nobody knows just quite what impact vaccinations will have and when, hence why Glastonbury has cancelled, due to uncertainty.

Obviously nobody in their right mind is advocating Festivals going on while the NHS is under massive strain, that would simply never happen would it.

There seems a real inability amongst some to separate the situation now, with the NHS obviously under huge strain, from what it might be at some point in the future, possibly 6 months from now.

 

You can't blame them though. In 6 months time Glastonbury would have essentially passed by a month. There is very much a feeling of needing to be at that point to know instead of guessing. Lots of things could be unforeseen and delay etc. 

I don't think for eg there is a chance they'll vaccine 13m by middle of Feb.

It's not impossible, they're currently vaccinating just over 2 million people per week and the current total is almost 6 million. Doing another 7 million in the next three or four weeks would be more or less on track with one notable flaw: That would only be the first of two necessary injections. The following five or six weeks (maybe less, if the pace continues to increase) would then have to focus on giving them the second injection as they are the most vulnerable groups.

Oh at this rate there is definitely a chance

It’s also a question of offering the vaccine to everyone above 70. They won’t all take it, so if they get within a few million that probably means they’ve vaccinated all the over 70s they can. They aren’t going to stop and wait when they hit that threshold, they’re going to keep going.

"I can't wait till everything's back to normal, and I can carry on with the enjoyable things in my life that I can't do during lockdown."

"Why are you wishing the years away? Pandemic days are the best days of your life."

That’s been  a day now to let the news that we were fearing  of the cancellation sink in. It’s still painful but important that we all focus on doing our bit to beat this virus so that 2022 will be the mother of all Glastos. We all have a lot of living to do before then and it’s important to remain positive to maintain both physical and mental health.  

And keep supporting E Fests, it’s chat keeps us connected to the festival!

Bolded made me laugh considering the previous two paragraphs contained exaggerations regarding 'several' strains that we have found. There is at present no conclusive, firm evidence that any of the strains will be resistant to the vaccine. 

Or that they are strains, they are variants, which as one female virologist was at pains to point out is a completely different thing.

like ... why have you ignored the existence of vaccines, which change everything?

It's almost like you're doing the same as many other people here of any and all views, and believing your prejudices are fact. 😛 

Vaccines absolutely do not change everything, they help but they are absolutely not the cure. Covid will be with us for years to come.
