Paul McCartney's headlining slot at England's famed Glastonbury festival has been cancelled. The three-day event was set to run at its usual home on Worthy Farm in Somerset from June 24th to the 28th, but has been completely called off due to the Coronavirus. Other stars that were set to play the the now-scrapped festival were Taylor Swift, Diana Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Pet Shop Boys, Fatboy Slim, and Lana Del Rey, among others.
The Guardian reported: “Ticket-holders will have the chance to roll their $58 deposit over to next year, and guarantee the opportunity to buy a ticket for Glastonbury 2021, while those who want a refund can apply for one. Further information on coach packages, official accommodation bookings and other tickets will be added to the festival’s website in the next few days.”
So far, only McCartney's June 27th Glastonbury appearance has been called off. As it stands now, “Macca” still has nine concerts booked across Europe between May 23rd and June 21st, taking in stops in France, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Belgium.
