Social media and public figures react to Glastonbury 2021 CANCELLATION

News that the iconic Glastonbury festival would be cancelled for the second year running due to Covid-19 has prompted many fans to express their sadness on social media.

One Twitter user wrote “Glasto is my spiritual home, my happy place, my mindfulness zone, my temple, my pilgrimage. I’m heartbroken, but still hopeful.”

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said he shares “the disappointment of everyone that Glastonbury won’t be going ahead this year. This regrettable but understandable decision is recognition that public health comes first and that right now, getting 200,000 fans together in just a few months looks very difficult to make safe.”

The cancellations are a blow not just to the music industry and music fans, but also to the charities that Glastonbury donates millions of pounds to every year.
