Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has confirmed that tickets can be rolled over to next year, if the event doesn’t go ahead.

Eavis has denied Mel B’s claims that Glastonbury is cancelled. On Monday (4 January), the former Spice Girl told Nihal Arthanayake on BBC Radio 5 Live that the event has been called off. She said, “I know that Glastonbury’s been cancelled, so a lot of big stage performances are on hold again this year, which is sad but we’ve got to get this virus under control.”

Eavis has taken to Twitter to state that Glastonbury has not been cancelled. She wrote, “We haven’t cancelled. Will let you know right here as soon as we have an update.”

Should the festival no longer proceed, tickets can be rolled over to 2022.

In December, Eavis said to the BBC, “We’re doing everything we can on our end to plan and prepare, but I think we’re still quite a long way from being able to say we’re confident 2021 will go ahead.”

Eavis co-runs the festival with her father Michael Eavis. The 85-year-old received his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on 31 December. He told NHS South West, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get the majority of our population vaccinated before June 2021, so that we can celebrate next summer in proper ‘Glastonbury style’?”
