Sad about this but not unexpected at all. 
 

The FAQs say the tickets will be rolled over to next year automatically and we don’t need to do anything. I’m being paranoid here, but did the same happen last year? My memory was is they were rolled over without you having to do anything. 

Yep, same thing happened 🙂 you only need to action if you want a refund.

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

I guess the government told them to go spin in regards to underwriting any cancellation insurance. Fucking Tories! 😞 

Probably a moot point anyway. The public health conditions and vaccination programme were never going to be conducive to events like this that early in the summer.

Completely anticipated but still very sad. No ticket, and I expect demand will make it very hard in the resale so realistically feels like it'll be 2023 before my next visit at the earliest 😢

Being realistic I didn't really think it stood a chance of going ahead this year, but even so this news really feels like a kick in the guts now its official.

Honestly can't see any festivals going ahead this year - I am just resigning myself to another year of nothingness

The public health conditions

why not? They were last summer for infection levels.

If there were the same infection levels this summer - which there should be (or better) - and with the vaccine in play for at-least the over-50s and vulnerable and health workers, there should be little concern from a public health sort of view when measured against the public health concerns of the govt to this point.

Wonder what they'll do for the weekend coverage for the beeb now then? Thinking they'll up the ante to a proper live stage maybe...?

I’d rather they did nothing, loads of old coverage will make me even more sick that’s it’s not on tbh.

I'm glad a decision has been made and we can move on. It does feel like the goalposts are constantly being moved and there was no chance of a festival in 2021 being like that in 2019. It has to be all or nothing with Glastonbury and here's hoping all will be good in 2022

One thing is for certain:

Glastonbury 22 is going to be fucking glorious!

Really hope so - my worry is I will never get to experience the place in the way everyone on here describes it.  I just hope that it comes back as good as before and doesn't lose something because of all this.

I am following all of Celtic Connections online at the moment.  Fantastic production, and a real bargain at GBP30 for a festival pass.  Would be great if Glastonbury could organize something along those lines.

Never imagined whilst watching the Cure that it’d be three years until we were back on the farm.

I know their gigs go on a bit, but still.

Blue Monday came three days late it seems. 😞 

Makes sense overall, but you hate to see it. Was wondering if there was any possibility of moving it to September could save 2021's chances but clearly Live events won't be happening in the UK for a while longer.
