Glastonbury submits plans for 'two-day' concert in September

Following the cancellation of Glastonbury Festival, plans have emerged for a two-day concert to be held on Worthy Farm later this year.

Earlier this year, the festival confirmed that the 2021 festival would not take place amid the pandemic. While many similar events have opted to postpone or re-schedule their dates, the Eavis’ decided to scrap the bash altogether. However, all hope isn’t lost, and there could be a smaller event taking place later on in 2021.

Somerset Live notes that the festival has submitted an application to Mendip District Council asking for permission to hold a two-day event. The application seeks permission to stage live music and sell alcohol between 2pm and 11pm at a “single event” across a Friday and Saturday.

The publication states that the two-day event would not allow punters to camp at Worthy Farm. On Instagram last week, Eavis wrote: “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.”

Eavis also noted she hoped to host a “family friendly campsite” on Worthy Farm this summer but did make clear that it was not “definite”.

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