With Glastonbury cancelled for a second successive year, Emily Eavis has announced a global livestream from Worthy Farm set for Saturday, 22 May 2021.
Emily Eavis told MetalTalk: “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!”
The five hour show will support Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid and will help to secure the festival for 2022.
Coldplay, Damon Albarn, HAIM, IDLES, Jorja Smith, Kano, Michael Kiwanuka, Wolf Alice, plus DJ Honey Dijon, will all perform as part of an uninterrupted film production. There will also be a number of unannounced surprise performances.
