Glastonbury is set to host a special live-stream event, featuring the likes of Coldplay, Haim, Wolf Alice and Idles.
#LiveAtWorthyFarm – set to take place on 22nd May – will also feature Damon Albarn, Jorja Smith, Kano and Michael Kiwanuka.
“We’re very pleased to announce that on the 22 May, we’re going to be streaming an incredible line-up of artists from Worthy Farm,” Emily Eavies explained to Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2. “We’re working with an incredible director called Paul Dugdale and we’re going to be taking you on a five-hour journey through an evening at Worthy Farm. It’s going to be like the festival, but without the people.”
Tickets for the event cost £20, and are on sale now. “We are going to take you on a journey through all of those spots that you know from Worthy Farm,” Eavies described. “The woods, the railway line, the stone circle, the pyramid, and it’s going to build into this epic journey around the site into the night.”
The news follows rumours of an event set to take place on the farm this September. “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,” Eavies explained. “Unlikely we’ll have any news for a couple of months – but will let you know right here when we do.”
