Virtual Glastonbury Day

Recommended Posts

I don't know if this has been suggested elsewhere-

Could Glastonbury have an online stream on the weekend of the festival? Artists from the lineup could do little solo sets. Macca headlining? 

It could be pay what you feel to raise cash for the festival charities. 

(I guess the festival team have thought of this, but wanted to see if others were keen)

I'm sure the BBC have already announced they will be showing a lot of highlights over the festival weekend?

Actually I just found the link: https://www.nme.com/news/music/coronavirus-bbc-confirms-details-of-glastonbury-and-eurovision-replacements-2634111

 

On the last weekend of June, the broadcaster will also air the “Glastonbury Experience”, which will allow fans to enjoy classic performances from the comfort of their own homes.

“Glastonbury may have had to cancel its 50th anniversary festival this June, but we are still working to mark the weekend with a Glastonbury experience to celebrate the spirit of this unique event,” the BBC said.

“We will bring the nation together and create a weekend of the best in music across radio, television and online with amazing performances for you to enjoy in the comfort of your home. And we will be in touch shortly with more details of the weekend.”

 

EDIT: Sorry, I misread your post. The above is in relation to highlights of previous festivals. Not a bad idea to have some streams from this years acts but guess that's very much down to the artists themselves.

It’s still relevant in that Glastonbury isn’t going to steal focus from the BBC’s Glastonbury coverage, so the idea is a non-starter. Hopefully we’ll all be too busy out in the sun that weekend anyway.
