Glastonbury Festival reveal virtual guide to celebrate 50th anniversary

Glastonbury Festival organisers have shared a virtual line-up which has collated the upcoming online coverage that will be available this weekend in celebration of the event’s 50th-anniversary.

Worthy Farm was set to welcome headline performances by Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar and Taylor Swift but was cancelled in March due to the ongoing pandemic.

Glastonbury have now shared an official breakdown that claims to offer an official breakdown of “the full festival experience”.

Topped by the BBC’s extensive coverage plan, the online bill includes 2020 mainstage Spotify playlists, a portal which allows people to upload their photo memories from the festival and a V&A online exhibition.

Fans will also be able to explore individual Glastonbury areas such as the iconic Block 9, The Common, The Glade and Unfairground — who will each be offering up live-streams of new content over the course of the weekend.

Glasto Latino will also be hosting live-streamed dance classes as well as sharing daily footage of the action from 2019. If you’re missing having a pint at The Park’s Stonebridge Bar, they have the next best thing lined up as they will be inviting their customers to enjoy special guest mixes and participate in “communal Twitter drinks”.

“Huge thanks to all of the areas and stages who’ve put together so much fantastic virtual entertainment for you to enjoy,” a statement reads.

“We hope you have a wonderful #GlastoAtHome experience and we can’t wait to welcome you back here in 2021.”
