Glastonbury Festival has been cancelled for the second year in a row due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Michael and Emily Eavis confirmed that the 2021 festival will not go ahead, saying they would be having another ‘enforced fallow year’.

A statement read: ‘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.

‘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 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. We are very appreciative of the faith and trust placed in us by those of you with deposits, and we are very confident we can deliver something really special for us all in 2022!

‘We thank you for your incredible continued support and let’s look forward to better times ahead.’

This announcement comes just weeks after Mel B claimed that the festival had been axed.

Speaking on BBC 5 Live on January 4, the Spice Girl said: ‘I know that Glastonbury’s been cancelled so a lot of big stage performances are kind of are on hold again this year.

‘Which is sad but we’ve got to get this virus under control, I guess.’

At the time, Emily Eavis denied her claims, saying there was ‘no news this end’.

However, Eavis had admitted that the festival was a long way away from being a sure thing.

She told the BBC:Obviously the vaccine news in recent weeks has increased our chances, but I think we’re still quite a long way from being able to say we’re confident 2021 will go ahead.

‘We’re doing everything we can on our end to plan and prepare, but there are still just so many unknowns and factors which are completely out of our control.

‘What we definitely can’t afford to risk is getting too far into the process of next year, only for it to be snatched away from us again. We lost millions this year, and we can’t risk that happening again.’
