Something is being built at Worthy Farm and it’s not the Pyramid Stage

Could the BBC secretly be preparing for a surprise Glastonbury 2020 live-stream straight from Worthy Farm?

Looking at the BBC Glastonbury‘s webcam which is located at Worthy Farm, it appears a few vehicles have pulled up at the legendary site earlier this morning (June 23) – and we’re not talking farm tractors here.

Looking at the white lorries which arrived on site this morning – and peculiarly resemble those of the BBC – some Glasto-goers floated the idea that the on-site build and preparations being made are for the BBC’s special Glastonbury Experience broadcast.

One Glasto-goer said: “Probably the beeb doing live broadcasts for their #GlastoAtHome at home weekend”

While another said: “I’d be very surprised if they didn’t broadcast something live from the site over the weekend”

BBC Glastonbury has clarified that the trucks by the Pyramid Stage on the Glastonbury webcam are just their team getting ready to film links for the TV coverage, saying: “For the eagle-eyed who’ve spotted trucks by the Pyramid Stage on our Glastonbury webcam, that’s just our team getting ready to film links for the TV coverage. No unexpected big surprises here and @glastonbury asked us to remind you that Worthy Farm remains closed to the public.”


Glastonbury Festival was set to celebrate its 50th anniversary this weekend – with headliners in Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift – but was forced to cancel this year’s instalment due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The news of the cancellation was followed by a joint announcement from Glastonbury Festival and the BBC informing fans a celebratory run of programming across the Glasto-weekend is to be expected instead.

In a message from organisers, announcing the Festival’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.”

Glastonbury unveiled its virtual line-up for the Festival’s big 5-0 celebrations yesterday afternoon (June 23), which are set to take place over the originally scheduled dates of the Glasto-weekend – Thursday 25th to Monday 29th June.
