Glastonbury Festival organisers didn’t want to cancel the event for a second consecutive year. Instead they made it possible to everyone around the globe to watch exclusive livestream. Already this Saturday, May 22nd – for the first time in their history enabling music fans wherever they are in the world to join together and share the experience of the Festival and its idyllic natural surroundings.
This is a unique opportunity to appear virtually at the festival, which is almost impossible to buy tickets to, because it’s usually sold out at the speed of light.
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!”
The livestream for the Baltic audience will start at 21.00 on May 22nd. For those who wish to prepare themselves on time, we’re listing the schedule of the artists’ performances here:
