Much to our disappointment, Glastonbury is not going ahead. But, it does not come as a huge shock, and it is the most sensible option. Let’s face it, 200 thousand people congregating in a large field is probably the worst idea during the Coronavirus pandemic. Also, although it is in June, chances of the outbreak slowing are highly unlikely.
So what does it mean for fans who have already paid a deposit?
Well, luckily those wishing to get a full refund can do so by contacting See Tickets. But, if anyone still wants to attend next year, they can roll their deposit over. Therefore, there is no reason to panic if you are one of the 135,000 people who have already laid out the initial payment.
The news of the cancellation shows the sign of times with the current outbreak. Also, it is incredibly saddening to see it get cancelled, especially as it was going to be the big 50th anniversary celebrations. Nevertheless, health is always the number one priority, and the bands will perform there again, we are sure.
Also, this is another major blow for the live music industry, which is already on its knees. It also raises doubts over the other music festivals taking place this summer. If the outbreak continues to rise, then it is inevitable that all the other concerts will get the plug too. But, on the bright side, there is always next year. That is if the virus has slowed by then, let’s hope so!
