“A new and sparkling jewel is emerging”
The Common‘s ‘area page’ has been updated with new info on the Glastonbury Festival official website.
Spotted by an eagle-eyed Glasto fan – The new message says that the late-night area is working on “something incredibly special” for Glastonbury 2020.
Whilst the updates are still on the down-low, the organisers statement reads: “Amidst the well-loved rave-arenas of The Temple and the Rum Shack a new and sparkling jewel is emerging, a secret, sacred well, a portal to another world! Prepare to be submerged in sound and born again… More details coming soon! Samula is going to another level!”

Located within the self-dubbed ‘Naughty Corner’ of Worthy Farm, the new revelation pretains to a planned revamp of The Common’s Samula – which made its debut in 2019 as the area’s latest attraction, launching last year with an infinitely looping realistic water simulation that interacted with the physical set and responded to changes in the music and lighting, a host of sound-systems and a takeover courtesy of Hospitality Records.

Meanwhile, Arcadia has recently been reported to be working on 4 new performance pieces which are set to debut at the Festival later this year – while Glastonbury’s late-night areas Shangri-La and Block9 confirmed the return of the Gas Tower and IICON for Glastonbury 2020.
On the line-up front – Lana Del Rey was the 4th act to be officially confirmed for playing Glastonbury later this summer and joins Taylor Swift who was the second headliner and third act to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival – after Paul McCartney, and Diana Ross who was officially confirmed earlier last year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer.
Also confirmed for the bill are Wolf Alice who were announced as playing Glastonbury’s 50th by non-other than Glasto founder, Michael Eavis himself.
Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for the Festival’s 50th anniversary have now sold out, with General Admission tickets selling out in 33 minutes, following Coach + Ticket Packages which sold out in just 27 minutes.
There are still ways to go to Glastonbury this year, and in addition to being able to volunteer – there will also be a resale of any cancelled tickets in the spring, with coach + ticket packages going up for resale on April 16 – followed by a general admission tickets resale on April 19.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
