Glastonbury’s September Gig Not Going Ahead

Emily Eavis has confirmed that a planned gig called Equinox, which was due to be held at Worthy Farm in September, will no longer be going ahead.

The festival had been granted a licence to hold a live show this autumn, with up to 50,000 people attending.

“We’ve decided not to go ahead with the September gig idea for a number of reasons, so we’re putting all of our energy into the campsite for now!” said Eavis on Instagram. “See you in a few days…”

Eavis has confirmed that those plans have been scrapped in order to focus on the site’s Worthy Pastures camping site.

Worthy Pastures was announced in April, with the farm being opened purely as a public camping site for the summer.

Eavis had said that the proposed autumn show was intended to be a larger version of the annual Pilton Party, which Glastonbury runs as a thank you and fundraiser for villagers, workers and other local people.

Earlier this year Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis said that he was considering holding the smaller event in September following the news of the festival's 2021 summer cancellation in order to finally celebrate the 50th anniversary of the festival.
