After Emily Eavis teased a gig at Worthy Farm for September time, further plans were shared in March, revealing that the festival had submitted an application to Mendip District Council for permission to hold a two-day event.
Now, as Somerset Live reports, the event could see 50,000 fans in attendance at the festival’s iconic Pyramid Stage for the one-stage event. It would not feature any overnight camping for attendees. Posting on Instagram in March, Eavis wrote: “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.”
Since the coronavirus pandemic forced the festival’s cancellation for the second year in a row back in January, Glastonbury organisers have shared a number of alternative plans for fans this summer. Last month, the festival announced plans to open a new campsite to the public on Worthy Farm this summer. Fingers crossed!
