Glastonbury was forced to cancel both its 2020 and 2021 editions due to the coronavirus pandemic, and most recently also had to axe its September Equinox gig idea “for a number of reasons”, one being in order to focus on the site’s ‘Worthy Pastures’ camping site – a one year only family-friendly campsite at Worthy Farm this summer, set to take place from 23rd July to 31st August 2021.
Worthy Pastures was announced in April, with the farm being opened purely as a public camping site for the summer. A statement said: “with no Festival taking place on Worthy Farm for a second consecutive year in 2021, Michael and Emily Eavis are pleased to invite campers, for one year only, to experience the farm in a way you’ve never been able to before.”
