Glastonbury’s organisers just teased a mysterious new event, but what does it mean?

In a cryptic teaser video shared on social media yesterday, the team behind Glastonbury Festival sparked hopes of a mysterious new event at Worthy Farm.

Hopes are growing that a one-off event will take place at Glastonbury’s Worthy Farm later this year after the festival’s organisers shared a mysterious teaser clip.

The 15-second video, which was shared on Twitter alongside the hashtag #LiveAtWorthyFarm, shows what appears to be a circle of stones or statues accompanied by flashing lights and a low, grumbling sound in the background.

The footage then fades to black, revealing the same hashtag #LiveAtWorthyFarm. Talk about cryptic, right? 

Although we don’t know anything more about what the video might mean just yet, it seems likely it’s got something to do with the proposed concert Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis teased in an Instagram post last week.

Despite Glastonbury being officially cancelled for 2021 (making this year the second year the event has been pushed back due to the pandemic), Eavis recently revealed that the team behind the festival were still hoping to put the farm to use this year with a concert in September and a “family-friendly” campsite throughout the summer. 

“Of course, we’ve no idea yet whether we’ll be able to do that, but we wanted to get the application in to be in with a chance,” she wrote. 

“Unlikely we’ll have any news for a couple of months – but will let you know right here when we do.”

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

Although the scale of the proposed event would likely be much smaller than the annual festival, which hosts around 200,000 people, it’s still an exciting development.

According to current plans laid out in the government’s roadmap for easing lockdown, all restrictions on social contact could be removed by 21 June at the earliest, so it seems likely that a September concert like the one Eavis is describing could go ahead if everything goes to plan. 

Even though the people who were lucky enough to get their hands on a Glastonbury ticket back in 2019 will have to wait another year to enjoy the full event, in the meantime, it seems there’s still a chance that people will be able to sing and dance the night away come this summer.
