Emily Eavis has shared an exciting glimpse of the Live at Worthy Farm shows set for this Saturday, May 22nd, by posting a behind-the-scenes snap of HAIM rocking out in preparation.
As part of the planned live-streamed mini-festival, the cameras will traverse the vast festival site, sharing performances by Coldplay, Wolf Alice, Michael Kiwanuka, IDLES, Kano and many more for a five-hour musical journey.
As dry ice mystically billows around the festival sites iconic Stone Circle, HAIM can be seen rehearsing in amongst it with Emily Eavis captioning the Instagram post with the caption: “HAIM. I love these women, what a band.”
Speaking to NME last week the band of sisters detailed their excitement at returning to the revered festival, albeit devoid of fans this year, stating: “We’ve heard that it’s going to be raining, so I’m hoping that it’s very muddy,” said Alana Haim. “We actually don’t know what to expect, it’s going to be pretty crazy. I just want to get back to the farm.”
Danielle Haim later added: “Glastonbury is our favourite festival that we’ve ever played. This time is going to be really special […] so we’ve been rehearing pretty hard.”
And Este potentially hinted at a few stunts that they might pull when the camera’s start rolling, telling NME: “I want to be at the Stone Circle and then swan dive into mud and then come out the other end at the end of the set. Maybe that’s what I’ll do.” With the weather forecast for the weekend, that is certainly on the table.
The rolling coverage will also be narrated by Glastonbury favourites of old including PJ Harvey, Jarvis Cocker and even Michael Eavis himself.
It will be available to stream at home and it will even be broadcast at some cinemas.
