Glastonbury organiser, Emily Eavis has said that she hopes to stage a concert at the venue in September.

The organisers have already confirmed that the festival was postponed for the second year running due to the pandemic.

Glastonbury had been sold out for 2021, as not many people had asked for a refund from 2020. Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar were due to perform in 2020 before the pandemic struck.

Eavis hopes to stage a gig for September

However now, Emily Eavis stated via Instagram that the application has been submitted to put on a show at the Worthy Farm venue this September.

Eavis wrote, “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 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”.

Pilton Party is the gig that is held to raise funds for festival workers and locals.

“Family-friendly” camping

Emily who works with her father Michael Eavis also confirmed that they applied to host “family-friendly” camping at Worthy Farm over the Summer.

Emily said, “Again, it’s not definite that it’ll go ahead but needed to set the early wheels in motion now”.

She also added, “It’s so good to dream up plans and hope that some of these things could potentially happen later this year”.

Recently, Michael Eavis also paid tribute to the man who “came up with the very first Pyramid at Worthy Farm”, Bill Harkin.  Harkin passed away recently aged 83.

Michael Eavis also said that Bill Harkin lived an “inspirational life” and was also “simply loved by us all”.

He added, “Bill was a top-flight architect working for British Leyland car launches at the time”.
