This is DEF a nightmare dressed like a daydream!

Taylor Swift has quietly (yet indirectly) axed another of her upcoming summer tour stops amidst the global pandemic.

Set for June 28th, the first date to bite the dust was the UK's famed Glastonbury Festival. The big event was set to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year. Swift's other cancelations include July 1st's Roskilde Festival in Denmark and July 11th's BST Hyde Park in London.

Sadly, we think this is just the end of all the endings the beginning of a much bigger cancelation spree.

Goodbye, Glastonbury

"We are so sorry to announce this, but Glastonbury 2020 will have to be cancelled, and this will be an enforced fallow year for the Festival." Essentially, their website's statement makes it clear that they won't be rescheduling - and, while ticket holders will receive "the chance to roll [a] £50 deposit over to next year" in order to "guarantee the opportunity to buy a ticket for Glastonbury 2021," a special request must be made for an actual refund.

Swift's next change-of-plans made their update much less subtly.

"THERE WILL BE NO ROSKILDE FESTIVAL THIS SUMMER"

Literally, in all caps, the Denmark-based collective shouted their April 6th news like a paperboy in the streets.

"The Danish authorities have just prolonged its prohibition against larger assemblies until August 31st 2020. The prohibition also goes for this year’s Roskilde Festival. We are devastated."

Swift, slated for the festival's opening night, was set to co-headline with fellow US-based act Deftones. The next few days were to see performances from Kendrick Lamar, Kacey Musgraves and TLC respectively, as well as Tay Tay's good friends Charlie XCX and HAIM.

Hyde Park a Hard No

Sorry to all the London Boy(s) out there, but - as of April 8th - you won't be seeing your Tennessee Stella McCartney any time soon.

"After closely following government actions and statements during the COVID 19 pandemic, as well as consulting with our partners The Royal Parks and wider agencies, we have concluded that this is the only possible outcome," BST Hyde Park said of their cancelation. The host asked that would-be attendees wait to contact them until May 6th, "allowing [them] time to review future plans and provide full information on the ticket refund process. "

But what's the fate for those of us on the opposite side of the pond?!

"Lover Fest" Lost?

At this time, Swift's original, two-day American festivals are still a go - but things are looking a little "treacherous" rn if you catch our vibe.

We reported on March 30th that the Los Angeles stadium serving as home to the inaugural "Lover Fest" was (and still is) under construction. Swift's July 31st kickoff is also planned to be SoFi Stadium's grand opening celebration. Kevin Demoff, Chief Operation Officer for the Los Angeles Rams, doesn't know if the deadline will be met.

"[Sofi Stadium will] be amazing when they are finished," Demoff said last week. The Rams' fresh turf will also be shared with the Los Angeles Raiders. He said that both teams will begin to play "in the near future, whether that’s in July, August, September, in 2021."

Don't say we didn't, say we didn't warn ya!
