It has been dubbed the ‘greatest show on earth’ whose cancellation marked another blow for the beleaguered events industry.
But all is not lost for Glastonbury Festival – as organisers raised hopes there will be a scaled-down celebration later this year.
It was announced in January that the prestigious festival, which runs annually, had been cancelled for the second year running due to the pandemic.
All is not lost for Glastonbury Festival – as organisers raised hopes there will be a scaled-down celebration later this year
But yesterday its organiser Emily Eavis suggested Glastonbury could return in some form, saying an application had been made to put on a concert in September.
According to a spokesman, the application was for a two-day live music event although, if confirmed, it would not necessarily last this long.
The dates would coincide with the Pilton Party – an annual fundraising gig for workers and locals to thank them for the festival.
And Miss Eavis suggested that this year’s party, held at Worthy Farm in Somerset, could be a bigger event than usual as she revealed they had applied for a campsite over the summer.
But she stressed that any camping would be ‘family-friendly’ – in other words, ‘not for partying!’

In a post on Instagram she said: ‘For those asking for an update on our plans later this year, we have put an application in for a licence for a concert at the farm in September (around the time we’d usually do Pilton Party).
‘Of course, we’ve no idea yet whether we’ll [be] able to do that, but 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.’
Miss Eavis, who organises the festival with her father Michael, added: ‘It’s not definite that it’ll go ahead but needed to set the early wheels in motion now.’
She continued: ‘It’s so good to dream up plans and hope that some of these things could potentially happen later this year…’
This year’s festival was sold out after tickets from last year’s event, which would have marked its 50th anniversary, rolled over.
Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar were all due to perform.
