Glastonbury Festival has been cancelled

Despite only announcing a wave of new acts last week, which included the final headliner Kendrick Lamar, Glastonbury Festival has now been canceled for 2020 due to coronavirus fears.

While the festival are still certain that things will have improved by the original June event date, they can not secure the safety of their thousands of staff and workpeople who will be on the site until that point. They have also suggested that those who bought a deposit for this year's festival can roll them over to 2021 if they wished.
