Glastonbury Festival will not go ahead for a second year in a row.
In a statement, organisers broke the news with "great regret".
With great regret, we must announce that this year’s Glastonbury Festival will not take place, and that this will be another enforced fallow year for us. Tickets for this year will roll over to next year. Full statement below and on our website. Michael & Emily pic.twitter.com/SlNdwA2tHd

It says despite efforts "to move Heaven & Earth" the iconic event cannot go ahead.
Organisers Michael and Emily apologised to festival lovers, writing "We are so sorry to let you down".
Very sad to see Glastonbury is not taking place this year.
As well as a blow to customers, the whole team behind it and artists, I cannot but help think it's yet another blow to the thousands of freelancers who work it.
They will be back next year, bigger, bolder and stronger.
