What happened to George Floyd was terrible but I’m not sure what action we are being invited to participate in? Are you asking people not go to work on June 2nd?
I don't think Floyd would have wanted all this violence in his behave. I know he would want everybody to pray and keep good memories. Store and resteraunt owners who are finally getting it together @ the past 3 months of uncertainties...are appauled at the actions of the public over the situation! Broken store windows, blowing up police cars and hurting others and police officers, as well! I just couldn't believe it all! People can believe inn peace, yet, there are many whom have no right to this type of reactive behavior. Floyd would not wanted this...😣
So your asking Drs nurses police officers firemen not to go to work.. erm well done back to the real world
Excellent. Thank you Glasto. We miss you.
All of those saying “I can’t take the day off” - it’s ok for those that can. Wow! Selfish much! It’s not about you!! Quote: “The aim is to have those within the music industry take a pause from promoting music, performing, holding listening parties across the day, instead using the time time to bring justice after Floyd’s death, which has prompted protests across the world in honour of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Well much as the music industry can take a day off, plenty of people can’t 🤷♀️ honestly this is one of the most privileged things you could do? Meanwhile Drs, nurses and care workers can’t have a day off
Highly Regards to all who stand with Humanity.... Stand against injustice and racism...
Yeah let's learn from America and disarm our police, let's take away their tazer's, because they kill people, and they can't be trusted to follow procedure and people are dying, # Nathan Grimes
Bloody hell just been lockdown for 11 weeks so probably go to work to save my sanity
Some people haven’t worked for 10 weeks
Well done Glastonbury Festival.
Thank you from Los Angeles. This has to be a global effort and this is the focus right now.
I didn’t think Glastonbury Festival were pro censorship, but an awful lot of comments have disappeared from here....
I think there’s just one kind of folks ‘folks’ Harper Lee (to kill a mockingbird)
Thank you from SC USA
I very nearly did “black out” today due to the heat, speed and Watts I was pushing whilst achieving a 20mph average on my commute. 💪🏻 🚴🏻♂️💨 #BlackOutDay #BlackOutTuesday
Your not milking the cows today then or feeding all the animals on the farm...
Recent events in another country. I don't think Donald Trump cares what Glastonbury does.
The music industry is pretty much paused anyway though. Are u asking artists to withdraw from online sales for one day? Is that even possible? Its not like anyone had any gigs booked that day anyway
Glastonbury great idea
Sorry lily i am already in work tonight x
If I don't go to work today, my boss will put me on Blackout2020
I am appalled and devastated that in today’s world such disgusting and racist behaviour can happen. I morn for all who have been a victim and their families. Glastonbury Festival stands for tolerance, acceptance and love. Thank you for standing up for justice, equality & peace 💚
For people who don't understand the reason this post is needed please start or continue to educate yourselves. If you're tired of the subject think of this; bipoc (black, indigenous and people of colour) do not get to be tired of racism as they live the reality of it, your ability to be tired or bored of it is privilege and should be checked. In relation to 'all lives matter'... Black Lives Matter is not saying that all lives do not matter. They are saying that at this moment in time we need to focus on the fact that bipoc (predominantly black men) are disproportionately being killed. Therefore, we're focusing on those who need support and for their lives to be recognised as equal to others. To use an analogy that's being bandied around - if your house was on fire you'd want the fireman to put out the fire on your house. Sure all the other houses may have things wrong with them, there may even be embers hitting them but yours is burning down. Do they spray down the houses not on fire or focus on the house on fire?
The BBC has announced its broadcast plans for the weekend when this year's Glastonbury Festival would have been, with a host of classic sets being made available across TV, radio & online, including Adele, Beyoncé, David Bowie, Coldplay & JAY-Z. Info: glas.to/bbc-2020 ... See MoreSee Less
Some film of the other non-stage parts of past festivals would be lovely! As we know there is much more to Glastonbury than stages.
boring,reruns are just that,would have been much better to get some of the headline acts from this year to broadcast live from staying at home,you could have raised a small fortune for your chosen charities by getting everyone that watched online to donate.
Radiohead 1997 please! One of the greatest nights ever!
Although I’m beyond gutted that we won’t be at the farm this year, in a way it’s fitting that everyone that wants to CAN celebrate the 50th anniversary together. It’s going to be a special weekend for anyone that’s ever been & dreams to go. Let’s appreciate what we’ve had so far & make it a special weekend of celebration. Xxxx
LCD Soundsystem 2016, Coldplay 2002, Muse 2004, IDLES 2019, Billie Eilish 2019, Tame Impala 2019, Adele 2016, The Prodigy 1997, Radiohead 1997, Bruce Springsteen 2009, Phoenix 2013, Oasis 2004, U2 2011, Arcade Fire 2014... those were glorious sets.
Please can we have Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds when they were on main stage before headliner Mumford and Sons. But please dont show Mumford and Sons
Laura Marie - shall we do some kind of socially distant outside nod to glasto? We could have a bucket for a long drop and stay well away from each other but still manage a drink? Or is irresponsible? Maybe a virtual glasto?
How about something from the 1980's when I went as a child 1987 was the last time I went
Bruce Springsteen and Oasis would be great 🙂 Bowie and Barry Gibb too 🙂
Anything from 2010!! Stevie wonder, Muse, Faithless , so many good ones!!
Just run last years IDLES set on repeat all weekend 😎😎
Would love to see King Sunny Ade, Joe Cocker or Sinead O'connor... Bowie, Tom Jones... Iet my grandkids generation know what we all go on about from back then they might even like some of it, oh yes and Richie Havens, Jackson Brown......
2010 was defo the BEST YEAR - I went when I was 9 years old that year and it was amazing and all of my favourite artists performed - will never forget it
my good friend Duncan McFarlane wants to see orbital’s headline set on the other stage. and gorillaz headline set on the pyramid stage when they had to stand in at the last minute 😃😃😃
Fab news, hope they include Arcadia fire, 👍🥰
Dig a hole in the garden babs! We’ll be “longdropping” that weekend! Cracking coverage this 🕺👏🎸 Sonja
I can remember you all going there doesn't seem that long ago but life has moved on since then good memories for you though
This June will consist of pitching up the tent and camping chairs in the garden and getting the laptop out for some Glastonbury viewing!
Rufus Wainwright ‘s amazing 2013 set please ! It was absolutely perfection from start to finish ! Gutted as he was signed up for this year - please say he will be there in 2021 🙏🏼
Please play some sets from the other stages. TV is saturated with the “big” pop celebrities. We don’t need to see them again.
Kylie from last year!
Nick cave should be a main stage headliner next year or soon. His arena shows more than prove the ability and demand to headline.
I’d love to see East India Youth, Metallica, FFS and Neil Diamond all over again ✨👌🏻🎶
Would love to see The Pendulum 2011 Pyramid stage set 🙌🏻💃
We woz there Andy Whitehead, time and again in body & spirits - maybe they’ll show Bishi! That Edwin Collins set at The Park would be emotional x
Glastonbury festivals and events have been cancelled for the coming months. Fans of Glastonbury are asked not to visit the town for the traditional Summer Solstice celebration in June to protect the community.
Please share and help us have a #safesummersolstice

I bet Dominic Cummings will be there
Especially if you’re wanting to talk rubbish about 5g and Coronavirus. Really don’t want you here... ever!
Fancy a lot of kids with pee brains have commented on here. Just saying. 🙄
I will follow my fatherly insticts and due to my exceptional circumstances I will be in Glastonbury for the whole of June.
Especially if you buy a 5G protection kit for £399 as recommended by the Town Council
I may be driving to Glastonbury Tor to check my eyesight...
I pretty much guarantee that people will ignore your request, sadly 🙁
If Dominic Cummings can travel wherever and whenever he likes so can I, see you all on the 21st of June
Avalon is long gone...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0LV2nhRQ88
Get a muckspreader ready 👍🏼
What about Durham ?
Sophie Elisabeth Powell you werent going to this year anyway right...... ? 😜😏

I want this world back! Glastonbury last year was one of the best times of my life! X
Never managed to get a Glastonbury ticket but some of my most joyous moments have been within the crowd at many Foals gigs jumping around and feeling the collective atmosphere and escapism.
So pleased to know that I can revisit last year’s incredible experience on iPlayer - my first, and now probably only Glastonbury....
❤️❤️👏👏 SO hoped that something would be planned for the best weekend we’ll all miss the most! 👍🎉🥳
Just watching Fontaine’s DC and reliving some of the best days of my life
Hubby and 9 year old son got to watch part of foals set from the ribbon tower ❤
Foals were one of the best watched it over and over again massive fan now
I never get sick of watching the whole glasto set, pure brilliance🎸
Without a vaccine it's hard to imagine any more festivals taking place.
Fee Gilfeather remember being at the Park and Nicola stroking a horse...they seem such distant days now
I will never experience Glastonbury I can never get a ticket
How about the Amazing Wood Burning Savages from 2019?????
Georgia Cox Look! It’s you in your leopard print hat and me when we were watching Foals. Blimey!
Posted full sets to iplayer? Why'd you guys take them down in the first place!? We paying for tv license so keep what we're paying for on there innit 🙃
That field was raaamed for foals, soo good.
Sadism of the highest order 😏
Great 38 secs ffs Glastonbury post some decent footage for us all during lockdown
Gretel Darby Hill Jason Hill we got to see them in a slightly smaller crowd! How lucky ☺️
I knew you wouldn’t let me down baby
Just in time for our Glastonbury weekend Ella Bella
Roll on 2021 🤟🏼
Saskia kun je er in komen voor morgen. Foals 😁 Super leuke live band. Mijn vader was fan 😁
Paul Carnus chaque fois que j'entends cette chanson je pense à toi 😂
