In a statement on Twitter and the event's homepage, the difficult decision has been made to postpone the festival for 12-months.
For the 135,000 people who have already paid a £50 deposit, the organisers will be offering to roll them over to next year.
However, those who wish to have a refund instead will be able to do so with See Tickets over the coming days.

The 2020 event was due to be the 50th anniversary of the legendary music festival (originally the Pilton Pop, Blues & Folk Festival), which first opened its gates to festival-goers back in 1970, who paid £1 each to see Mark Bolan perform.
The Pyramid stage first made an appearance in 1971 and returned as a permanent fixture on the Somerset hills in 2000.
Unfortunately, this is not the first big musical event to be called off in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak with Coachella, SXSW, Musikmesse and Superbooth also cancelled.
