Glastonbury organisers face backlash from ticket owners after the decision to cancel, following Reading and Leeds announcement.

The festival was announced as cancelled after organisers deemed the event ‘logistically impossible’, following the announcement that Reading and Leeds Festival WILL happen this year. Many were left wondering if Glastonbury could have happened after all…

In January, Glastonbury Festival’s organisers announced that the event has been cancelled for a second year running. Many ticket owners are now wondering if it was a premature decision to cancel Glastonbury, especially since the news that the UK will hopefully return to post-pandemic normality from 21 June.

“Bet @glastonbury regret being so hasty,” one twitter user wrote, with another adding: “Looks like Glastonbury were a bit quick to cancel rather than push back”.

Glastonbury’s statement earlier this year reads, “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. Tickets for this year will roll over to next year.”

2019’s headliner featured Stormzy, who donned a stab proof vest designed by Banksy. The vest was a symbol of Britain’s knife-crime crisis and racial inequality in the criminal justice system – an issue he often speaks about publicly and addresses in his music.
