Organisers of the Glastonbury Festival have welcomed fans to create their very own flag for its upcoming livestream event. Live At Worthy Farm replaces the popular music festival this year with livestreamed performances from the likes of Coldplay and Haim. Fans are invited to get in on the once-off event by sending in their creations to feature in the broadcast.
The online festival is described as a “five-hour journey through all of those spots that you know from Worthy Farm”. There will be live performances from a host of acts, including Damon Albarn, Wolf Alice, and many more. For the event, organisers are now looking for fans to make homemade flags to celebrate “diversity [and] equality across all communities”.
The festival said it would love people “to design a flag to be used during our Live At Worthy Farm global livestream! Glastonbury organisers also want flags to represent “a cleaner, greener, fairer world”, “love”, “all colours of the rainbow”, and “Freedom to protest”.
Organisers want flags to be “as homemade as possible – all artistic abilities are welcome, just be creative and get your craft on. They can be tie-dye, stitched, painted…anything! Just make them as bright and colourful as you can. Flags should be made of material – preferably cotton – and definitely not paper or cardboard. Please don’t glue / attach anything to them, especially not plastic. Please do not use glitter of any kind. Everything must be stitched and fully secured, as your flag could be flying in the wind.”
On the Glastonbury website, organisers have laid out a guide to the size and dimensions to use on your flags. They also added address details of where to send your flag and added, “We’re really looking forward to seeing what you come up with!”.
Explaining last month what to expect on the livestream event, organiser Emily Eavis said, “We are going to take you on a journey through all of those spots that you know from Worthy Farm – the woods, the railway line, the stone circle, the pyramid, and it’s going to build into this epic journey around the site into the night.”
The event will be filmed across the Festival’s Worthy Farm site at landmarks including the Pyramid Field and the Stone Circle. The online festival will see a range of artists giving their time to perform in support of the Glastonbury during these unprecedented times. Organises have bagged Coldplay, Damon Albarn, HAIM, IDLES, Jorja Smith, Kano, Michael Kiwanuka, Wolf Alice, and DJ Honey Dijon, to all perform as part of an uninterrupted film production, with a number of unannounced surprise performances.
