Glastonbury Festival has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This June’s festival was the 50th anniversary of the iconic festival, with headline sets from Taylor Swift, Sir Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar.
However, it has been confirmed it will no longer go ahead, with tickets now rolling over to 2021.
A statement from Michael and Emily Eavis read: ‘We are so sorry to announce this, but we are going to have to cancel Glastonbury 2020. Tickets for this year will roll over to next year. Full statement below and on our website. Michael & Emily.’
A full statement on Twitter read: ‘We are so sorry to announce this, but Glastonbury 2020 will have to be cancelled, and this will be an enforced fallow year for the Festival.
‘Clearly this was not a course of action we hoped to take for our 50th anniversary event, but following the new government measures announced this week – and in times of such unprecedented uncertainty – this is now our only viable option.
‘We very much hope that the situation in the UK will have improved enormously by the end of June. But even if it has, we are no longer able to spend the next three months with thousands of crew here on the farm, helping us with the enormous job of building the infrastructure and attractions needed to welcome more than 200,000 people to a temporary city in these fields.’
