Glastonbury is coming to cinemas
Instead of a real world festival this year, Glastonbury has embarked on a series of initiatives. There’s turning the site into a lovely cuddly middle class campsite, and there’s using the weekend of May 22/23 to livestream performances in the Live From Worthy Farm mini festival.
Those streaming include Coldplay, Wolf Alice, HAIM and Idles, and we’re promised some narrative between sets. The big news, however, is that over three hundred and fifty UK cinemas will be out of mothballs and streaming the sets on the big screen.
It won’t exactly be stood in a rainy field, it’ll be sat with probably a much bigger view than normal and will support both Glasto and their regular charities, so hey, win win.
The partner for all this is Trafalgar Releasing, whose CEO did some fluff: “As a national moment with some of the biggest acts in music, we are excited to be part of this unmissable celebration, allowing audiences to experience the event on the big screen and support their local cinemas.”
