The BBC will broadcast a "celebration of Glastonbury" this June

Following this morning's (Wednesday 18th March) news that Glastonbury's 50th anniversary celebrations are on hold due to coronavirus, the BBC has revealed a plan to broadcast a celebration of the festival this June.

A message from organisers Emily and Michael Eavis explained that cancelling this year's event was their "only viable option" following "new government measures announced this week" to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

Following that, the BBC posted their own statement. "We, along with the Eavis family, are saddened that understandably, the Glastonbury Festival can’t take place," it reads. "We are already looking forward to next year’s festival at Worthy Farm and will now look at providing our audiences with a celebration of Glastonbury in June."

Those who had tickets for 2020's event will be able to roll their deposit over to Glastonbury 2021 and guarantee their opportunity to buy a ticket.

You can check out the BBC's statement below.
