Glastonbury 2020 Just Got Canceled

Following Coachella and the Met Gala, Glastonbury is the latest cultural institution to be canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak. The festival, which takes place in England every summer, made the decision earlier today ahead of April 1, when customers were scheduled to pay for the rest of their ticket deposits.


“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,” the festival said in a statement.


Tickets purchased for this year’s festival will roll over for Glastonbury 2021. Headliners for this year included Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Diana Ross, and Paul McCartney. You can read the full statement here.
