‘In spite of our efforts to move heaven and Earth, it has become clear that we simply will not be able to make the festival happen this year,’ the organisers said in a statement
“With great regret, we must announce that this year’s Glastonbury festival will not take place, and that this will be another enforced fallow year for us,” organisers Michael and Emily Eavis said in a statement. “In spite of our efforts to move heaven and earth, it has become clear that we simply will not be able to make the festival happen this year. We are so sorry to let you all down.”
The event will not be rescheduled for this year. Information for ticket holders is available on the festival’s website. “We are very confident we can deliver something really special for us all in 2022!” the Eavises said. [ . . . ]
Here is our first Glastonbury Festival 2019 line-up poster (by Stanley Donwood). Following the previously announced Friday night headliner Stormzy, and the Sunday teatime legend Kylie, we can confirm this year’s final two Pyramid Stage headliners, alongside a first list of acts playing the Pyramid, Other, West Holts, John Peel and Park stages.
The Killers headline Saturday night, with their first return to the Pyramid Stage since topping the bill in 2007, and following on from their rapturously-received surprise set in the John Peel tent in 2017. For Sunday night, The Cure return to headline the Pyramid for the first time since 1995, in what marks a record-equalling fourth Glastonbury headline set (Coldplay being the only other act to have occupied the closing slot four times). The Cure previously also headlined in 1986 and 1990.
