(Belated) 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Will there be any (obviously belated) celebrations for Glasto's 50th anniversary at this year's festival?

I have a vague recollection of some stuff happened over the pandemic (archive footage, live sessions etc), but to be honest I wasn't paying attention to much of anything during this period. 

Has the whole 50th Anniversary moment passed now, will this year be just a "normal" Glastonbury?

Not based on any kind of actual knowledge but I don’t think it’ll get much acknowledgement and I personally don’t think it should. It’s been and gone. All celebrating it now does is remind everyone what we missed, and of any painful memories associated with the pandemic. 
To paraphrase Frank Gallagher, let’s just have a fucking party! No one wants to get maudlin.

It's always a party regardless so a party hat is always appropriate but I agree with @blutarskyfocussing on 50th too much just reminds us of what we lost. I just want to concentrate on being happy it's back.

Don't think it's needed at this stage,  it's just going to be so special to be back after 2.5 years of absolute turmoil across the world. What a blessing. We truly are the luckiest people to have tickets ❤️

There's more important things to celebrate this year.  

Sure, we had some festivals last year and I was lucky enough to go to a couple of small ones, but nothing says 'we're back to normal' after Covid like 200,000 people at Glastonbury.
