The organizers of England's Glastonbury Festival announced on Thursday morning (Jan. 21) that this year's event has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. "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," read a statement from the iconic summertime gathering that was forced to take a break last summer as well due to the coronavirus.
"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 they did last year, the Glasto team is offering anyone who bought tickets in October 2019 for last year's canceled event to roll their deposits over to next year, with a chance to buy a ticket for the planned 2020 edition.
