Although vaccination programs are underway in many countries around the world, it's very clear that the Covid crisis still has a firm grip on the planet - especially this corner of it.

It means that although many summer festivals have announced their intention to go ahead - and some have even announced their line-ups - it's still not clear whether they'll be able to proceed.

And the fate of the big daddy of them all, Glastonbury, still hangs in the balance after its 50th anniversary edition was cancelled in 2020.

Yesterday, organisers were once again forced to deny that the 2021 edition of the festival has been cancelled - this time, after Mel B made comments on BBC 5 Live yesterday.

The Spice Girl said: "I know that Glastonbury’s been cancelled so a lot of big stage performances are kind of are on hold again this year. Which is sad, but we’ve got to get this virus under control, I guess."

However, organiser Emily Eavis took to Twitter to deny the comments, saying "Nope, no news this end. Will let you know right here as soon as there is news."

She later confirmed that the festival is NOT cancelled as things stand.

Several months back, her dad Michael Eavis said that the only certainty was that Glastonbury would return in 2022, although he did not rule 2021 out. Looks like we'll just have to wait and see for now.
