The pandemic had terminated the festival for 3 years at a stretch. The last festival was conducted in the year 2019. The canceled festival of 2020 also had announced Paul McCartney as the headliner of the festival. Taylor Swift was announced as the top line of the 2020 canceled festival.
Again last year, 2021 announced the conductance of the festival. It was again called off due to the violation of the norms and protocols of Covid-19. The headliners of the 2021 festival were Coldplay
The cancellation of the event was referred to as a “traumatic thing” by the co-organizer of Glastonbury. The cancellation also resulted in money loss and the organizers referred to be going through financial struggles.
The cancellation of the event in the second year also left the audience upset. To compensate for that, numerous small concerts were conducted live. These concerts featured popular artists like Haim, Damon Albarn, Kano, and others.
