RUMOUR UPDATE: Glastonbury definitely isn’t moving to September

Emily Eavis confirms there are “no plans to move next year’s Glastonbury to September 2021”

The recent post from respected festival website eFestivals speculating on whether Glastonbury Festival could be set to take place in September rather than June for its 2021 instalment, has now been debunked by “one of the festival big bods”.

The rumour started circling the web yesterday morning (August 29), after eFestivals website founder, Neil Greenway, suggested such a possibility could actually be on the cards.

Following up on the rumour thread, Greenway confirmed that Glastonbury will definitely not be moving to September, saying: “I’ve just found a text on my phone from about 9.30pm last night, from one of the festival big bods… The festival definitely isn’t moving to September.”

Later in the day, Glastonbury Organiser, Emily Eavis, had also issued a statement on Twitter saying: “For those who have been asking, we have no plans to move next year’s Glastonbury to September 2021 – we’re still very much aiming for June.”

Eavis also confirmed that they’ve moved their ticket resale back from October to April. See the Tweet below.

Glastonbury has been taking place on the last weekend of June practically every Glasto-year since its inception – except for 1970, when Glastonbury Festival (then known as Pilton Pop, Blues & Folk Festival) took place on September 19, for its first-ever instalment.

Recently Glastonbury had updated its FAQ’s webpage to reflect new info in regards to the festival’s 2021 upcoming ticket sale dates – omitting the possibility of a ticket sale in early October, while confirming that there will be resale in April 2021.

Meanwhile, earlier this month Glastonbury Festival founder, Michael Eavis, discussed the possibility of Glastonbury 2021 going ahead, saying he’s “still hoping, fighting and working at it all the time to make sure it happens next year [2021]”

Glastonbury was set to celebrate its 50th anniversary earlier this summer but was forced to cancel this year’s instalment due to the COVID-19 crisis.
