Glastonbury 2021 to Go Ahead, Says Festival's Lawyer
2020 was set to be Glastonbury's 50th anniversary, but, along with countless other summer events this year, the festival became one of the many victims of the coronavirus crisis, and was force to have an 'enforced fallow year'. With the pandemic timetable over the next year completely uncertain, many people have assumed that the large events such as music festivals will likely remain cancelled for 2021 as well.
However, according to Glastonbury's lawyer Ben Challis, this might not be the case:
“For 2021 we will have to start building in March, or the end of March because its a big festival and it takes a lot to build, and no one wants to do a ‘light Glastonbury’,” Challis said.“The plan would be to rebook the 2020 bill, it will move everything, including our 50th-anniversary celebration to 2021."
The organisers have suggested that mass testing will be a part of the reopening, and that everything will be as safe as it can possibly be.
