Glastonbury organisers hope to stage concert at Worthy Farm in September

Entertainment

Proposals have been submitted for a concert at the Glastonbury festival site this autumn.

The news comes after it was announced in January that the festival had been cancelled for a second year in a row because of the coronavirus pandemic.

But festival organiser Emily Eavis said in a post on Instagram that an application has been made to stage a concert at Worthy Farm in September instead.

She wrote: “For those asking for an update on our plans later this year, we have put an application in for a licence for a concert at the farm in September (around the time we’d usually do Pilton Party).

“Of course, we’ve no idea yet whether we’ll able to do that, but we wanted to get the application in to be in with a chance.

“Unlikely we’ll have any news for a couple of months – but will let you know right here when we do.”

Pilton Party is Glastonbury’s annual fundraising gig for workers at the festival and locals.

More from Covid

Ms Eavis, who organises the festival with her father Michael, said an application has also been made to host “family-friendly” camping at the farm over the summer.

She added: “It’s so good to dream up plans and hope that some of these things could potentially happen later this year…”

Glastonbury was sold out for 2021 because so few people had asked for a refund from 2020, when headliners Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar were all due to perform.
