2020 had been set to mark the 50th anniversary of the event - which attracts crowds of around 200,000 - with headliners including Diana Ross, Taylor Swift and Sir Paul McCartney.

Organisers Michael and Emily Eavis have previously described the cancellation as a "terrible blow", and an "enforced fallow year" due to the "unprecedented uncertainty" caused by COVID-19.
