This is your chance to win 2 Glastonbury tickets + Pyramid experience, while also doing good
Glastonbury Festival has donated a pair of tickets to the 2021 Festival to this prize draw fundraising campaign, along with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to watch a set from the side of the iconic Pyramid Stage.
The legendary festival is raising money for stage crew charity Stagehand’s #ILoveLive campaign, which is providing financial help for all UK stage crew who are in the greatest need. Stage crew seem to be the forgotten ones in the current pandemic. They’re the unsung heroes of the live entertainment world. Without them shows just couldn’t happen.

The impact of Covid-19 has been devastating for the whole music industry but particularly for the stage techs, sound engineers, guitar techs, keyboard techs, drum techs, stage managers, production managers, tour managers and other live support personnel who make shows possible.
With no shows since March, crew’s income has been slashed with many finding that they are ineligible for any kind of government financial aid. Many are in desperate need and most are sitting with mental health issues.

To be in with a chance of winning these tickets and a-money-can’t-buy side of stage experience, Stagehand’s are holding a prize draw with each entry costing £5. You can enter multiple times.

Where is the money going?
Stagehand’s immediate plan is to help the crew in most need, those who are close to losing the roof over their head, or those that are struggling to put food on the table. Grants will be considered to any UK crew worker who is working in the live music sector. They do not have to be PSA members.
Glastonbury was set to celebrate its 50th anniversary this summer down on Worthy Farm – with headliners in Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and Paul McCartney – but was forced to cancel this year’s instalment due to the coronavirus outbreak just a week after the lineup was announced back in March.
Last month, Glastonbury Festival‘s General Counsel for over 26 years, Ben Challis, discusses the cancellation of Glastonbury 2020 and plans for 2021 – confirming that the Festival is “still looking at June 2021”.
Challis words echoed organiser Emily Eavis’ comments back in August when she said: “For those who have been asking, we have no plans to move next year’s Glastonbury to September 2021 – we’re still very much aiming for June.”
Meanwhile, Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis recently spoke about the challenges that the Festival faces with COVID-19 and some possible measures which could be put in place for Glastonbury 2021, saying: “The testing is going so well now, there could be massive testing arrangements…”
In looking ahead to next year’s event – set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday 23th to Sunday 27th June – here’s everything we know about the 2021 instalment thus far.
