The organizers of the Glastonbury Festival aim to bring the event back to June 2021, Emily Eavis said.Music festival founder Michael Eavis previously said the fate of next year’s event was uncertain.

Glastonbury has been canceled this year, on its 50th anniversary, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Emily Eavis, who co-hosts the festival, tweeted that they were hoping it would return in June – her usual month – and not be pushed back into the fall.

“For those who have asked the question, we have no plans to move Glastonbury next year in September 2021. We’re still aiming for June a lot,” she wrote.

“We have postponed the resale of our tickets from October to April because so few people have requested a refund (next year’s festival is still full) which means we don’t have enough tickets to resell .

“In addition, we have extended the deadline for free cancellation until the end of January. ”

Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar were scheduled to headline the Pyramid Stage this year to celebrate the festival’s historic anniversary.

Michael Eavis previously told ITV News West Country that they are “moving heaven and earth” to ensure the festival takes place in 2021.

“But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to happen. It’s just wishful thinking, ”he said. “The only certainty I can think of is that the year after 2022 will be perfectly honest, so we’ll have to wait maybe two years.
