Last week (21 January), Glastonbury Festival organisers announced the cancellation of this year's event due to the coronavirus pandemic, marking the second consecutive year that the festival has been called off due to COVID-19.

Speaking to The Guardian, co-organiser Emily Eavis said they "would love to build a show that can be watched at home by people all over the world".

Eavis said, "A lot of big artists have been in touch offering to perform for us at the farm, so we’re doing everything we can to make that happen. We would love to build a show that can be watched at home by people all over the world, and of course it would be a useful way for us to make some very welcome income."

Emily Eavis' comment comes after her father and festival founder Michael Eavis revealed last week tha he would like to hold a "smaller" event in September to mark the festival's belated 50th anniversary.

Eavis' daughter also spoke to The Guardian about Glastonbury's hopeful return in 2022, "I think next year is going to give us all such an enormous high, because when we can all reunite on this scale it will feel even more uplifting than ever. One thing this last year has taught us is that fundamentally we all need human connection."

Glastonbury Festival organisers released a statement cancelling the 2021 event last week (21 January), which read, "In spite of our efforts to move Heaven & 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." Those who secured a Glastonbury Festival ticket in October 2019 will be able to roll over their £50 deposits to 2022.
