Earlier this year organisers were forced to cancel the world's biggest festival for the second year in a row because of the coronavirus pandemic.

However the Mail reports that Mendip District Council, which oversees the location in Somerset, has granted permission for Glastonbury to hold a one-off event in September.

Sam Phripp, the council’s chair of licensing, said: "We hope that, Covid-depending, this event will be a success, and we look forward to welcoming music lovers back to our corner of Somerset this autumn.

"With a view to Covid-19, of course, any event would have to be Covid-safe, and @MendipCouncil will work with other organisations and the organisers to make sure that’s the case."
