Glastonbury Festival 2021: Emily Eavis dispels cancellation rumours ‘flying around online’

Loading ....

Emily Eavis has confirmed there is “no change” to plans for Glastonbury Festival 2021 after rumours circulated on social media that the event will be cancelled.

The festival organiser has moved to dispel speculation on Twitter that “there is no Glastonbury 2021”, and added that festival-goers will be updated officially on the plans for the event next year.

Writing on Twitter, she said: “Appreciate lots of rumours are flying around online and in the press, but there’s no change to what I said in the BBC interview last week.

“We’ll let you know through official channels as soon as we have an update (which won’t be until the new year).”

Emily Eavis recently revealed she and her staff are “doing everything we can on our end to plan and prepare” for a full show, but added that “we’re still quite a long way from being able to say we’re confident 2021 will go ahead”.

This comes amid “so many unknowns and factors which are completely out of our control”, Emily told the BBC.

“I can’t tell you how much we’d love to welcome everyone back to the farm,” she said.

“It’s been way too quiet here this year and we want to get people back here as soon as we possibly can.

“Obviously the vaccine news in recent weeks has increased our chances.

“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.”

Previously, the festival’s lawyer, Ben Challis, revealed that due to the complexity of the huge construction operation for the event, which covers more than 1,000 acres when completed, the festival needs to begin it’s build process in March for a June festival.

Emily Eavis said it is “just too early to say” what changes could be made at the site or what form a 2021 event may take if it goes ahead.

She said: “We’re talking about a situation where the goalposts move weekly and sometimes daily.

“Clearly the vaccine is being rolled out, and that’s great news, but there isn’t yet any kind of clarity or consensus on what things will look like in May – when we’d usually have thousands of staff on site – or June, when we’d obviously have the festival.

“We’re doing everything we can to plan for next year.

“The hard part is understanding exactly what we’ll be planning for, and what impact that will have on what we’re able to do.

“But, right now, I’m not sure there’s anything we could do that would completely ensure we can welcome 200,000 people to spend six days in some fields in June 2021.”
