Glastonbury’s two-day September festival could welcome 50,000 people to the Pyramid Stage

fixrunner | May 11, 2021

Up to 50,000 people could attend Glastonbury’s Worthy Farm site this September after plans were submitted to the local council for a two-day concert.

The festival’s organisers, Michael and Emily Eavis, are hoping to stage an event later this year after they were forced to cancel the main June festival earlier this year, for a second consecutive year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

New details recently submitted to Mendip District Council about plans for the smaller spin-off event reveal that it would only the main Pyramid Stage field at Worthy Farm and the event would have a maximum capacity of 49,999 people, with four separate car parks close to the main concert arena. More than 200,000 people typically attend Glastonbury, and this smaller event would also not feature any overnight camping facilities for attendees.

Licensing documents submitted by the festival state that “any relevant COVID-19-secure measures will be put in place “in accordance with all government legislation and guidance”. No firm date has yet been set for such an event, though Emily Eavis put forward September as the month it could hopefully happen.

A Mendip District Council licensing sub-committee will meet on Wednesday, May 12th, to discuss the plans for the event after the licence application was submitted in March

Worthy Farm will also be home to a family-friendly campsite, Worthy Pastures, this summer.

Organisers are hoping the event can go ahead following the cancellation of this year’s main festival
