Another famous festival goes online: free concerts at the Glastonbury Festival30 July 2021
More and more event organizers have begun to assume that 2021 will not be the year of public concerts either. For this reason, important festivals will be moved online.
No less than 203,000 people attended the Glastonbury Festival in 2019, a fascinating five-day event in Pilton, Somerset, UK. Unlike festivals built only around live music, it also includes moments of dance, comedy, theater, cabaret, circus and a few other artistic events. It is different, and this is why many miss you.
This year’s edition, as well as 2020, will be broadcast on the Internet. Compared to last year, however, a series of concerts will be available for free, for the first time, via YouTube. The day you have to put in the calendar is May 22, 2021. It is important to remember that live attendance at the festival will not be possible this time either, instead, you will be able to buy tickets for enjoy the whole event from the comfort of your home.
The part of the Glastonbury Festival that will be available for free on the internet is entitled Live at Worthy Farm and will run for about five hours of concerts. Among the names that might motivate you to mark May 22 on your calendar are Coldplay, Haim, and Jorja Smith. The musical moments will be interspersed with moments of recitation (spoken word) from some “very special guests”.
Proceeds from the event will go to Greenpeace, Oxfam, WaterIad and, with a bit of luck, to return to normal with a festival like in 2022.
For the whole festival, the tickets you can buy from this address cost 23 euros, if you are in Europe, the United Kingdom, Africa and the Middle East. Those in the US pay $ 27.5 and will see the event postponed, according to local time.
