Glastonbury Festival teases a new project, Live At Worthy Farm

A cryptic announcement has been shared to the festival’s official Instagram account

With Glastonbury Festival cancelled for not just one, but two years thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the festival’s organisers have teased a new project, titled Live At Worthy Farm.

The upcoming event was announced via a mysterious teaser video posted to official Glastonbury Festival social media accounts yesterday (March 29), with the hashtag #LiveAtWorthyFarm. The post has also been reshared by Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis.

The teaser itself shows the festival’s Stone Circle area, illuminated on a foggy night. However, it doesn’t offer much more than that, with further details yet to be unveiled.

Earlier this month, Eavis announced that the festival has applied for a license to hold a concert at the Glastonbury site in September, around the time that the annual Pilton Party is usually held. “Of course, we’ve no idea yet whether we’ll able to do that,” she said at the time. “But we wanted to get the application in to be in with a chance”

It’s unclear, however, whether the Live At Worthy Farm event is linked to that application. There’s also the possibility that it will take the form of livestreamed shows, a concept that Eavis hinted at in an interview with the Guardian back in January.

Following the cancellation of Glastonbury Festival’s 50th anniversary in 2020 — which promised headline performances from Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney, and Taylor Swift — the BBC aired a “celebration” of the event.
