For 50 years the Glastonbury Music Festival in England has been entertaining sell out crowds with tickets selling out even before the musical lineup is released.

The Festival was put on hold last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic in hopes of reviving the annual event in June.

But unfortunately, the pandemic continues to rage and the Glastonbury organizers have once again cancelled the annual three day musical event.

Organizers Michael and Emily Eavis spoke on the festival saying, “in spite of our efforts to move heaven and 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, “ they added.  The Eavis thanked fans for their support and promise better things to come.

Music lovers who have put deposits down for the 2020 show had those deposits transferred to the 2021 festival.  Those deposits have now been moved to the 2022 festival.

The Eavis have held the festival at their family farm in Worthy since 1970.  The festival consistently draws 150,000 music fans.
