Glastonbury’s 50th year anniversary was cancelled this year due to coronavirus, and party goers may have to wait till 2022 to attend the festival again.
Michael Eavis who organises the festival with his daughter said it’s due to the high volume of people that attend year on year. Speaking to ITV News West Country he said: ‘500 people is OK, isn’t it. But my job, 250,000 altogether, is too many people I suppose, isn’t it really.
‘I’m still hoping I’m going to be running next year and I’m going to be moving heaven and earth to make sure that we do. But that doesn’t mean it will necessarily happen. That is just wishful thinking really.’
Although the festival might have to take a two year break, Eavis is confident that the festival can survive the pandemic.
He said: ‘No, I do not worry at all, I am so confident that it will survive. The only certainty I think is the year after, 2022. To be perfectly candid, so we might have to wait for two years maybe.
‘But I am still hoping and we are fighting and working at it all the time to make sure it happens next year. ‘You can’t kill it off just like that. It will come back. It will come back, probably stronger actually.’
