The “application for a proposed lawful development certificate for the use of part of Worthy Farm as a temporary campsite” has now been deemed “lawful”
The recent application put forward by Glastonbury Festival earlier this year for a temporary campsite on the festival site has now been approved and deemed as “lawful”.
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.
Now, a Decision Notice document from the Mendip Council – spotted and shared by eFestivals forum member Dukeicon, earlier today (April 10) – reveals that the planning application for the campsite on the festival site has been approved (see screenshots below).
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.
Glastonbury 2022 is set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from 22nd – 26th June 2022
