Glastonbury sets sights on June 2021 return
Nothing is certain in 2020, but if all goes well, fans might be returning to Glastonbury as soon as June of next year. A statement, made on Twitter by the festival’s organizer, Emily Eavis, confirmed that the festival was already aiming for a 2021 return, representing a change of pace from fears of bankruptcy earlier this year.
For those who have been asking, we have no plans to move next year’s Glastonbury to September 2021 – we’re still very much aiming for June.— Emily Eavis (@emilyeavis) August 30, 2020
2020 was to be Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary, conjuring a Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift-led lineup that seemed to truly live up to the occasion. While the UK festival’s monumental birthday won’t be realized this year, Emily Eavis told BBC that 2021 will be a “double celebration.”
Although tickets for next year’s event are currently sold out, Glastonbury is planning a resale event to sell the tickets for which refunds were requested anew. However, Glastonbury has yet to process enough refunds to hold a proper sale, according to Eavis.
