Below we’ve compiled some of the overhearings which are indeed varied in scope – including a bloke being offered some free condoms at an info point and a security guard turning away Kate Moss at the entrance to a “packed Park”.

Security: Look we’re full. It’s for everyone’s safety. No entry

Bruce Springsteen. A friend who was an ITU nurse over did it and was laid with her face in the mud throughout. Medics came to check on her, she sat bolt upright and told them she was fine and started quoting her vitals at them then face planted back into the mud 🤣

Watching an Aswad set in the mid 80’s. A guy next to us (enjoying a large medicinal cigarette) taps the guy in front of him and says “would you care for a puff John?” Turns out it was Mr John Peel and he replied “cheers mate, don’t mind if I do.”

Following the cancellation of Glastonbury 2020 due to the coronavirus COVID-19, the Festival – headed by Michael and Emily Eavis – has been doing its best to help combat the pandemic by donating cotton tote bags to hospitals in need, while also giving away thousands of litres of hand sanitiser, gloves and face masks meant for Glastonbury 2020 to frontline emergency services – including Avon and Somerset Police and NHS staff. The Festival also gave away several thousand ponchos which have been repurposed as anti-coronavirus PPE.
Glastonbury 2020 was set to be held at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday, June 24 through Sunday, June 28 – In a message from organisers, announcing Glastonbury 2020’s cancellation, Michael and Emily Eavis explained that cancelling this year’s event was their “only viable option” following “new government measures announced this week” 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.”
