Glastonbury ‘Live At Worthy Farm’ Streaming Event Announced
Glastonbury have announced they will be hosting an exclusive livestream concert from their iconic Worthy Farm on Saturday 22nd May.
The ground-breaking, five-hour extravaganza will be interspersed by a spoken word narrative, written and delivered by some very special guests, guiding Festival-goers on a journey through the sacred valley in Somerset.
Accessible only to ticket buyers, the online event will be broadcast in full across four separate time zones, with staggered livestreams for the UK, Europe, Africa & the Middle East, East Coast, North America and Central/South America, West Coast, North America and Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
The British streaming will kick off at 7pm.
A limited edition line-up poster for the event is also available, with proceeds going to Stagehand, the live production welfare and benevolent fund which is helping crew who have fallen into the gaps in Government financial support during the pandemic.
Emily Eavis said: “After two Glastonbury cancellations, it brings us great pleasure to announce our first online livestream, which will present live music performances filmed across Worthy Farm at landmarks including the Pyramid and, for the first time ever, the Stone Circle. It will feature a rolling cast of artists and performers who have all given us enormous support by agreeing to take part in this event, showing the farm as you have never seen it. There will also be some very special guest appearances and collaborations. We are hoping this will bring a bit of Glastonbury to your homes and that for one night only people all over the world will be able to join us on this journey through the farm together!”
Shot by acclaimed Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale, the hugely ambitious production will take viewers on a journey of the world famous Glastonbury site, which typically greets more than 200,000 people each June. The show will be co-promoted and produced by the pioneering UK livestream business Driift, who have hosted globally successful livestreams for artists including Laura Marling, Nick Cave, Biffy Clyro, Niall Horan and Kylie Minogue, and BBC Studios Productions.
The lineup for the event includes Coldplay, Damon Albarn, HAIM, Jorja Smith, IDLES, Kano, Wolf Alice, Michael Kiwanuka and the DJ Honey Dijon, as well as some unannounced special guests. The set lengths will vary for performer to performer but the show is expected to run for at least five hours. Viewers will be able to watch the show on any modern web or mobile browser that is connected to the internet.
Tickets for the show are available now, and cost £20. You can order yours here
