On the Thursday (June 27) of this year’s Festival, there will be an Extinction Procession, giving you the chance to stand up and demand changes to the way we live as a society, so that we can avoid a climate catastrophe.
The event - which we have organised alongside the Green Fields, Greenpeace and Extinction Rebellion - will begin at 4pm at the Park Stage, where guest speakers will make a stand for our planet and the precious habitats that it hosts.
The procession will then make its way to the Sacred Space (aka the Stone Circle) in the King's Meadow within the Green Fields, where we plan to create the largest ever human sculpture of an hourglass – symbolising extinction – at 5.30pm. ... See MoreSee Less
What a wonderful idea, but let's hope this year the Glastonbury visitors take home their tents, chairs, wellies, recycling and single use plastics! There seems to be a strange irony here unless this year there is a sea change!
But happy to have 5g tested at the festival even though there are health concerns for humans as well as bees and other insects??
A dairy farm holding an extinction procession 😂😂😂
Wish I could be there!
Now here's a crazy idea in terms of taking a stand for changes in the way we treat the environment - how about you force everyone to take their tents and chairs home, and prohibit the use of single use plastic during the festival? Now THAT is rock'n'roll! 🤘✊
Great idea, good to meet but with like minded peps...
You can demand anything you like, don't mean you're gonna get it. I demand it stops raining, right now. Bet I still get propa soaked on my way to M&S...
But the rubbish and tents and other stuff left behind as well as all the electricity etc used at the festival is hardly great for the environment. Hopefully no single use plastics available there!
Why don’t you do a mass litter pick every day at a certain time, wouldn’t that be more beneficial? X
Make sure you take your rubbish home with you and recycle every bit you can. That’s more important than joining the procession.
Nah not now Extinction Rebellion are accepting money off this crowd of hypocrites. #BDS #RADIODEAD "Thom Yorke wrote ...........The band are donating the money raised by the release to climate change activists Extinction Rebellion."
Gotta love those that would not go to glasto, but love commenting negative, immature comments on anything glasto related 😂 well done Glastonbury. It's working.
Don’t allow tents onsite unless they have the ticket number indelibly written on to them........then if it is left onsite a-banned for life, b-fined for fly tipping and c-I don’t have a c but I’m sure I could all rethink of one 🤣😄🤣👏
Glastonbury used to be for the music & having a good time but lost its way since all this polictal BS has infected it. Glad I had my days there when I did.
I know its on a,much bigger scale but shouldnt matter,they should take a,leaf out of shindigs,site...very impressive after pics,with clean feilds
Just hope everyone takes their tents home and not leave them for trash 🙄
Take your tent home and don’t leave your campsite in a state. That’s a good start
Why don’t you hold it on the Monday after the festival, A) folk wont have to see the tripe and b) you can doing something meaningful and litter pick
An organised walk over 3 fields 😂😂😂
Hmmm.... 🤔 5.30pm, we’re probs going to be working?
Every one of us signs a pledge to leave no trace. If you stay by one of the big stages after the headline act has finished it's a sea of cans, plastic cups, food waste etc unfortunately this is impossible to police because of the size of the crowds throughout the day. The only thing we can hope for is people use their common sense and take their rubbish with them and dispose of it responsibly.
I've stopped reading all the negative comments. My boys are 14 & 9 and will most definatley be there to take part in this procession. Everyone blabbing about how bad this idea, should do something more productive and stop spoiling the opportunity for people who are young and care and want to make a stand. Anyone that suggests Micheal and Emily don't care about our planet and its future are vile.. I'll walk away now..
Bet they all
Leave a giant hourglass shaped pile of rubbish
Will Emma Thompson be flying over via BA first class to attend the festival?
Amazing!!! We passed this on the motorway and guessed it was going to the greatest place on earth 😍😍
Love and peas to all xx
I now take my kids to the field that is the same as when I used to visit the field as a kid some 30 odd years ago. Magical. The showers I remember like it was yesterday ... still there. 😍😍😍
