eFestivals can announce the full details of the second eFestivals' Glastonbury World Cup which will be played in front of the Pyramid Stage at this month's Glastonbury Festival, between England and the Rest of the World teams to raise money for Wateraid.

WaterAid
Last year's event saw England romping to a 9-3 victory over the Rest of the World with the icing on the cake being Festival organiser Michael Eavis turning up to present the trophy! The event raised over £3000 for WaterAid.

This year the farmer has challenged the event to raise £6000 for WaterAid and thus provide enough money to provide the cost of building three water wells. Water is something that we all take for granted but other people aren't so lucky.

The event on Thursday 24th June begins at 1pm at the Pyramid Stage field with prematch entertainment from Hobo Jones & the Junkyard Dogs who will be doing a 40 minute set with the World Cup match starting after that. The game will then finish around 3 o'clock when once again Michael Eavis will present the trophy to the winning team.

In conjunction with eFestivals, the Endorse it in Dorset Festival will be providing the half time entertainment for the WaterAid World Cup. Endorse it is already supports several charities and is proud to be able to help out in this Water Aid fundraiser.

To this end they are forming The Endorse it supergroup Wronghorn, featuring members of the following bands - top punk band P.N.U.K., ska supergroup Guns of Navarone, mighty hoedowners The The Boot Hill All Stars & kings of cowpunk Pronghorn. There may even be a certain punk poet/musician joining the throng...

Expect a fast & furious set of Endorse It favourites driven by banjo, double bass, guitar, mandolin and fiddle whilst players, mainly members of the eFestivals forums, prepare themselves for the second half of the England vs The Rest Of The World football match, which will be raising funds for WaterAid.

Post match entertainment will be provided by The Supernovas.

You can help us raise money for WaterAid by making a donation at http://www.justgiving.com/glastoworldcup2010.

Michael Eavis has challenged us to raise £6000 for WaterAid and thus provide enough money to provide the cost of building three water wells. You'll be drinking loads of water at the festival, so why not treat someone else less fortunate than yourself, to the the chance to drink clean water as well.

There will also be Endorse It CDs ( featuring bands who have played the festival over the years) available for a donation of which 100% will be given to WaterAid.

For those coming to the festival please come along and help support an event that it's hoped will become a Glastonbury tradition. Last year's game had coverage on BBC, ITV, Worthy FM as well as the Q Glastonbury review magazine (who are once again sending Pat Gilbert down to play for the England team). eFestivals hopes with your help and support and people digging deep with their donations we can have another brilliant event that we can all be proud of.

WaterAid, who work in 17 countries providing water, sanitation and hygiene education to some of the world's poorest people. They are one of the three causes supported by the Festival along with Greenpeace, and Oxfam.

eFestivals supports WaterAid and gives around 1% of our turnover (turnover, not profit) to them each year.

For more on WaterAid's important work please see the WaterAid website.

The SOLD OUT Festival will mark the 40th anniversary of the Music and Arts Festival at Worthy Farm, Somerset, where Michael Eavis first opened his gates for business in September 1970. Glastonbury Festival runs for five full days from Wednesday 23rd until Sunday 27th June 2010 across over a 1,000 acres of beautiful countryside.
