Glastonbury has become the latest major music festival to cancel its 2020 edition, citing the “new government measures” announced in the wake of coronavirus and the “times of such unprecedented uncertainty.” The announcement comes less than a week after the British festival announced a raft of new acts to perform, including the news that Kendrick Lamar would be headlining the iconic Pyramid Stage on the Friday night.

While the festival organizers hope that the situation has improved by the end of June, they have acknowledged that they will not be able to spend the next three months working with volunteers to get the site ready. The statement also goes on to announce that anyone who wants to can roll their deposit over for 2021, guaranteeing that they will have a ticket for next year. You can read the full statement from Michael and Emily Eavis below.
