Last month, Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis called the prospect of a 2021 event “wishful thinking.” His daughter and co-organizer, Emily, has shared a more optimistic outlook on the gathering’s immediate future.

“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,” Emily Eavis tweeted. She went on to say that so few would-be attendees had asked for refunds that ticket resale would be pushed back from October, 2020 to April, 2021, and that the 2021 event remains sold out.

Glastonbury was one of countless events called off on account of COVID-19 in 2020. In the early days of the pandemic, a festival collapse claimed gatherings like Ultra Music FestivalCoachella Music & Arts Festival and Movement Electronic Music Festival in rapid succession, offering a glimpse of the economic turmoil to follow. As summer approached, Burning ManAwakenings Festival and others followed suit.

Glastonbury festival has yet to announce 2021 dates at the time of writing.
