The Eavis’ have said they ‘simply will not be able to make’ Glastonbury happen in 2021.

In a joint statement, Michael and Emily Eavis have confirmed what has seemed increasingly likely during recent weeks, that Glastonbury has been cancelled for a second year in a row.

“With great regret, we must announce that this year’s Glastonbury Festival will not take place, and that this will be another enforced fallow year for us,” a statement from the family reads.

“In spite of our efforts to move Heaven & Earth, it has become clear that we simply will not be able to make the Festival happen this year. We are so sorry to let you all down.”

“As with last year, we would like to offer all those who secured a ticket in October 2019 the opportunity to roll their £50 deposit over to next year, and guarantee the chance to buy a ticket for Glastonbury 2022.”

“We are very appreciative of the faith and trust placed in us by those of you with deposits, and we are very confident we can deliver something really special for us all in 2022!”

“We thank you for your incredible continued support and let’s look forward to better times ahead.”

The wait for the famous old festival to celebrate its 50th anniversary goes on then, last year’s cancellation the early standard candle for where live music was going in 2020.
