Camping at Worthy Farm summer 2021
A new website – by the name of Worthy Pastures – has been set up for what appears to be Glastonbury Festival‘s “family-friendly campsite” project for later this summer.
An advert in the Shepton Mallet Journal published today (Thursday, April 22), depicts the iconic Glastonbury Tor on the backdrop of a full moon, alongside the Festival logo and lyrics from Neil Young’s Harvest Moon: “But now it’s gettin’ late and the moon is climbin’ high I want to celebrate see it shine in your eye..”
It comes after Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis recently confirmed the application had been made for a “family-friendly campsite” at the farm for this summer, saying: “It’s so good to dream up plans and hope that some of these things could potentially happen later this year,” – while also hinting at a separate possibly two-day event at the farm in September.
Worthy Pastures will run through the “lovely summer months”, from 21 July until August Bank Holiday, with all tents being pre-erected by the good people of Glastonbury Festival. Tickets will be available from 1st May at worthypastures.com
Glastonbury has been forced to cancel both its 2020 and 2021 editions due to the pandemic, but is set to hold a special livestreamed concert at Worthy Farm next month on Saturday, 22nd May (with encore screenings on Sunday, May 23).
Coldplay, Damon Albarn, HAIM, IDLES, Jorja Smith, Kano, Michael Kiwanuka, Wolf Alice, plus DJ Honey Dijon are all set to play the livestreamed concert – in addition to some “very special guests” – which promises “a five-hour journey through an evening at Worthy Farm,” adding that “it’s going to be like the festival, but without the people”.
Tickets are on sale now for the livestream event from worthyfarm.live priced at £20, €23, $27.50 & AUD$35, with a number of timed streams available to accommodate audiences globally.
