Glastonbury’s Emily Eavis confirms “an announcement is coming next week”!

“There’s going to be a lot of gems unearthed from the Glastonbury vault”

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has revealed that an announcement regarding the Festival’s broadcast plans for what would have been ‘Glastonbury weekend’ is coming next week.

In a message posted via her official Instagram account, Eavis said: “For everyone asking about our broadcast plans for what would have been the festival weekend, an announcement is coming next week with all the details. And there’s going to be a lot of gems unearthed from the Glastonbury vault!”

The announcement follows previous confirmation earlier in the year from the BBC of plans to broadcast “a celebration of Glastonbury” this June.

Glastonbury, which would have been celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, was set to be held at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday, June 24 through Sunday, June 28 – but was cancelled in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a message from organisers, announcing Glastonbury’s cancellation, Michael and Emily Eavis explained that cancelling this year’s event was their “only viable option” following “new government measures” to prevent the spread of the pandemic – saying: “We’re so sorry that this decision has been made. It was not through choice. But we look forward to welcoming you back to these fields next year and until then, we send our love and support to all of you.”
