Kacey Musgraves set at Glastonbury on hold after festival postpones
Kacey Musgraves will have to wait an additional year to perform at Glastonbury once more, as the festival has announced that it will be postponing until 2021.
The festival announced in a statement that due to recent government measures and amidst all the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, they cannot go ahead as planned and instead will be making 2020 a fallow year.
“We are so sorry to announce this, but Glastonbury 2020 will have to be cancelled and this will be an enforced fallow year for the festival,” festival organisers Michael and Emily Eavis said in a statement. “Clearly this was not a course of action we hoped to take for our 50th anniversary event, but following the new government measures announced this week – and in times of such unprecedented uncertainty – this is now our only viable option.
“We would like to send our sincere apologies to the 135,000 people who have already paid a deposit for a Glastonbury 2020 ticket.”
Ticket holders can rest easy though – if you already have a ticket, it is still valid for the rescheduled dates next year. Anyone who would still like a refund can apply to do so before September.
Glastonbury 2020 was set to be headlined by Kendrick Lemar, Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift, with it being fully expected that Musgraves would be on the Pyramid Stage.
It was also presumed that Kacey Musgraves would be using Glastonbury as an anchor for a UK tour, so whether that comes to fruition or not now remains to be seen.
