Glastonbury has become the latest event to be cancelled due to coronavirus.

Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney, Diana Ross and Dua Lipa were set to headline.

"We're so sorry that this decision has been made," a statement from organisers reads. "It was not through choice."

The lineup for the festival's 50th iteration was released just last week and organisers had "fingers firmly crossed" the event would go ahead.

Fans who had already paid the NZ$100 deposit can roll that over to next year and secure "the opportunity to buy a ticket for Glastonbury 2021", organisers said. Refunds are also available.

The festival - initially scheduled for late June - would have seen 200,000 people hit Somerset's Worthy Farm.
