NME.COM is first to bring you the bad news...

GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL has been cancelled, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

Festival organiser Michael Eavis is due to appear in Court later this month to answer allegations that the festival breached licensing conditions last year, mainly in regard to audience numbers exceeding the permitted amount.

One million pounds was spent on improving security, including the building of a 15-foot super-fence around the site and improved roads and drainage.

More details will follow.
