100%, if festivals happened this summer then they definitely next summer. Don't lose the faith gang.

I agree with that. We are however going to have a difficult period over winter and would expect increased hygiene measures and probably proof of vaccination for next summer.  We have to live with this virus, we can’t just spend the foreseeable years isolating, hiding in our houses staring at screens.  We’ve got to get back out there interacting, conversing, we need human contact.     100%.

95% - The side that is pushing for restrictions now in the UK, they won’t stop once they get some. They will keep pushing, and that side does not want festivals happening, even in summer. 

They didn't want restrictions loosened in the summer and they still did. What exactly do u think these people can do? The people in power don't want restrictions it's as simple as that.

10000000000%

I'm very wise.

You are right we'll have a difficult winter, not helped by the government who'll try to make wrong decisions but with so many vaccinated GFL should be able to get people on site to start the build in late March, which was the major issue this year.

That’s correct, regular testing in place and vaccinations should allow the build to start unhindered.  applications for traders is on the main site now so things are moving apace.

Blahhh now seeing Manchester is cancelling all fireworks events as well. I know I keep banging the same drum but I am getting increasingly worried. Still 75% though. Have to agree with the calls for the covid thread to return here though, it was good for news updates if nothing else. 

100%.   Edinburgh’s Hogmanay Street party, fireworks and gigs going ahead with 30000 tickets going on sale.

That is so unnecessarily pessimistic. You cannot seriously think that can you?

Our local rate is over 1k per 100k , and we are just up the road from festival, I don’t see anyone wearing masks or taking this virus seriously anymore.

Has nothing to do with Glastonbury going ahead next June. 
 

There are literally full stadiums and arenas right now, also look at this summer. By late summer every fest happened. Your view is ludicrously pessimistic

I'm not sure I'd want it back in here in its current state. I've read it a bit lately but it's just the same couple of posters now and we all know what they think without having to read their endless posts. 

I've been venturing to Reddit to read some coronavirus chat and it seems a lot more civilised than that thread.

Seems to be that anything not ticketed is being cancelled. Is it just because it’s easier to control crowds?

My local fireworks aren’t going ahead either!

Yeah it seems that way, the only exception is the London fireworks but as that's 100,000 people and others gather all round the city to watch them its harder to control, plus they're doing an alternative event for it anyways so I see no reason why Glasto won't happen next year - 100% on

Aside from any threat from Covid, what might the festival do if it looked like London Bridge was going down in the period leading up to late June?

Been in the news recently and might present quite a dilemma.

If London Bridge actually fell down in June, all bets are off. This country will go out of their tiny minds when it happens. I can’t see it being cancelled, but the atmosphere would be.. weird.

Anyway, back on track. 100%.

yes , i am aware , we have been to a couple of festivals as well as a number of concerts inc a couple of NHS free ones as my wife is a staff nurse.

my reason for the low " current " percentage is the incredibly high local rates down here in the west country.inc Mendip ( which covers the site ) where the rate is 1084 per 100k ! . which in itself is a bit of a worry , but when you couple that with the lack of face masks and people just ignoring the fact that Covid is still out there , i can see the rates staying high/ increasing .

Case rates now mean nothing for what will happen next summer. Also I imagine your area will have been impacted by the lab problems and false negatives. Cases in England have plummeted in the last couple days anyway and modelling now saying sinter will be fine.

It's 100% on
