Somerset Glastonbury Festival fans recreate site at home
Written by crest887fm on June 28, 2021
Glastonbury Festival fans have been virtually taking part in Glasthomebury by recreating the site in their homes after it was cancelled for a second year.
The festival usually takes place on the last weekend of June but was cancelled in 2021 and 2020 due to Covid-19.
This year’s event sees fans inviting people to get together and recreating the festival experience with family or housemates by camping in their own home, while watching the event celebrate its 50th birthday on TV.
Followers were able to download free posters, bunting, wristbands and a build-your-own pyramid stage instruction manual for their phone.
A couple Felicity Cooney and Freddy Bevan who met each other at the festival and got engaged under the site’s Pyramid Stage after it was called off last year said they “couldn’t bear” not celebrating the festival this year, thereby building their own replica of the Pyramid Stage in their garden.
Ms Cooney said “The wedding is in May next year and I’m sure you can guess its Glastonbury themed.
The event has also been used as a virtual fundraising effort for charities that helped people who struggled during the pandemic.
NSPCC’s head of community and events fundraising Patrick Weaver said he was happy the charity was chosen by the festival’s fans.
