The festival has been cancelled this year due to concerns over the Covid: 19 pandemic with a wish to return in 2021. 

On Thursday, the founder of Glastonbury, Michael Eavis, warned that the festival could go bankrupt if it is not staged in 2021 because of coronavirus.

Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar had been due to headline this weekend at the world-famous festival in Pilton, Somerset.

But Glastonbury organisers announced in March that the event would be cancelled amid increasing concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.  

Speaking to The Guardian to mark the festival’s 50th anniversary, Michael, 84, said: ‘We have to run next year, otherwise we would seriously go bankrupt … It has to happen for us, we have to carry on. 

‘Otherwise it will be curtains. I don’t think we could wait another year.’ 

His daughter Emily Eavis, who is a co-organiser of the festival, added that they would be in a ‘very serious situation if we had to cancel next year’s event.’

‘But then the whole live industry will be hanging in the balance if we have another summer without festivals, and we don’t know what level of government support there will be for this industry’.

However she said that she was ‘optimistic’ and that the festival had always found ways to ‘evolve and survive’.

Mr Eavis said that without the income from 2020, and with charity commitments – including the building of low cost housing in Pilton – needing to be funded, the festival’s financial reserves would struggle to withstand another cancellation. 

Emily added that the government needs to step up and support the British arts more broadly otherwise many aspects of our culture could disappear forever.

Mr Eavis said that they have several plans in the works with regard to holding the festival safely next year.

One of the options would be to create a testing scheme that will allow ticket holders on site after they’ve been shown to be virus-free.
