Den engelske storfestivalen hadde blant annet sikret seg store navn som Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney, Diana Ross, Aerosmith og Lana Del Rey på plakaten, som ble sluppet så sent som i forrige uke.
Festivalen skulle etter planen feire 50-årsjubileum i dagene 24. til 28. juni.
Les arrangørenes uttalelse i sin helhet her:
«We are so sorry to announce this, but Glastonbury 2020 will have to be cancelled, and this will be an enforced fallow year for the Festival.
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.
We very much hope that the situation in the UK will have improved enormously by the end of June. But even if it has, we are no longer able to spend the next three months with thousands of crew here on the farm, helping us with the enormous job of building the infrastructure and attractions needed to welcome more than 200,000 people to a temporary city in these fields.
We would like to send our sincere apologies to the 135,000 people who have already paid a deposit for a Glastonbury 2020 ticket. The balance payments on those tickets were due at the beginning of April and we wanted to make a firm decision before then.
