'As with last year, we would like to offer all those who secured a ticket in October 2019 the opportunity to roll their £50 deposit over to next year, and guarantee the chance to buy a ticket for Glastonbury 2022. While many similar events have opted to postpone or re-schedule their dates, Glastonbury has been forced into cancelling with as statement reading: "We are so sorry to let you all down".

The 2021 line-up was yet to be revealed this year.

'We've got a hell of a lot of surprises and things that we were planning for the 50th (anniversary) and we're going to try to get those things going for next year'.

In a statement, organisers Michael and Emily Eavis said it was with "great regret" they had to cancel the 2021 festival, adding they were "so sorry" to let people down. With love, Michael & Emily'.
