Officially cancelled. Tickets remain valid for next year.

No big surprise.

Yeah - I was waiting for the announcement really. Hoping some of the smaller festivals will take place later in the summer but I'm not convinced any of the major festivals will be confident they can go ahead in time for them to happen...

Festivals have everything against them regarding Covid haven’t they. The close proximity people are, both watching the bands and sharing facilities. The demograph of the attendees, mostly young and unlikely to be vaccinated by then. Travelling to get there would also be a challenge.

I’m not at all surprised as I said about the announcement, but mentally it was something to look forward to after a tough year. Least we know now and have tickets for next time, whenever that might be. 

Its really making me question if anything will ever be the same again.

Great news.

For the fields, the trees, the hedgerows, the shrubs, the soil, the (just check my Green credentials and virtualclimatesignaling!) wild flowers, the insects, the rivers and streams, the cows, the birds, the reptiles, the critters, for every creature in that bit of glorious Somerset, and Somerset itself.

Thank corvid. Sorry @RedM.

Couldnt they play in front of no fans?!

At times when I've been working at the festival, I've wandered around the Glastonbury site on the Tuesday after it has all been constructed but before the crowds are allowed in. It's one of of my favourite things in the world to see it all constructed there just waiting for everything about to start. In some ways. I actually prefer the anticipation to the festival itself...

Admittedly three years is going to be a ******* long time of anticipation, especially as I don't actually know if I'm gonna get to work it in 2022.

Quite sad about this. I know it’s a fairly vapid thing to be sad about in the scheme of everything that’s going on, but I felt (up until recently) that it was fairly realistic for it to go ahead and was light at the end of the tunnel.

The reality is looking like another year basically of limited opportunities for fun.

They’ve had an absolute nightmare with the IT systems tonight.. as a result it’s completely free to watch now

Paid to watch it and planned my evening around it. It was such a shambles and sacked it off after about an hour and a half of refreshing. The company who provided the streaming service seemed to be very new as they started the evening with very few followers and ended up with several thousands plus about 10k of abusive messages!

I wonder if they approached Glasto in first instance with the idea. It was a complete mess. It’s about time they stopped using shite like Drift and Seetickets

Having a quick look at the statement that Driift released this afternoon, I get the impression they weren't making any money out of it and were using it to boost their profile. 

Yeah, they ****** up massively by using them. I can see Glastonbury haemorrhaging a lot of cash from this event at a time when their funds must be pretty depleted.

We got locked out for about an hour and a half before we could get in.

once we did managed to rewind and watch from start though. Quality of it was brilliant , shame all the tech problems ruined it for some tho.

apparently they are going to let bbc show most of it (or even more of it ) on Glasto weekend. So if anyone missed it they might be able to watch it then

Best of 1998 on BBC4 as well is absolute 🔥.

Weather less so 😂

Watching with a box of Merlot, which seems to have developed a leak.  The 90’s programme on BBC2 before was decent, tomorrow at 9pm round up of 2000’s.  
 

Just hope some proper live music comes back soon…..

Some great older sets added to the iplayer this year. Fair play I thought they would have just used the same material as last year.

arcade fire 2007, queens of the Stone Age 2011 were two memorable ones I was at 

iggy pop 2007 is there too which I missed And regretted 

Idles 2019 is a must for anyone who likes Idles
