Glastonbury Festival have confirmed that their planned gig at Worthy Farm in September has now been cancelled.
With restrictions lifted and a previous live-streamed show already broadcast, Glastonbury Festival organisers had touted the possibility of a limited attendance show in September dubbed ‘Equinox’.
However, Emily Eavis has now confirmed the Equinox idea will not come to fruition as they focus instead on their Worthy Pastures project.
“We’ve decided not to go ahead with the September gig idea for a number of reasons, so we’re putting all of our energy into the campsite for now!” She said in an Instagram post. “See you in a few days…”
Eavis and Co. had previously submitted a successful request to host a two-day live event in 2021 with fans in attendance, and while no bands had been announced it seemed like a hopeful possibility that at least some live music would return to Worthy Farm after two years of cancellations.
An official statement to accompany Emily Eavis’ Instagram post read: “With no Festival taking place on Worthy Farm for a second consecutive year in 2021, Michael and Emily Eavis are pleased to invite campers, for one year only, to experience the farm in a way you’ve never been able to before.”
