PLANS for a concert at the site of the Glastonbury Festival in September have been scrapped.

In an Instagram post last night (July 20) Emily Eavis, who runs the Pilton event with father Michael, confirmed plans for the concert - which had been granted approval for a crowd of up to 50,000 people - would not go ahead.

"We've decided not to go ahead with the September gig idea for a number of reasons," she wrote.

Instead, she said, organisers would be focussing on Worthy Pastures, the family-friendly campsite at Worthy Farm, which opens on Friday.

"We're putting all of our energy into the campsite for now," Emily added.

Worthy Pastures opens the Eavis' Pilton farmland to campers, who can book pre-erected tents for stays between three days and a week, from July 23 until August 31.

It is billed as being an opportunity to sample the site in this way, 'for one year only'.

Attractions on offer include the chance to tour the festival site - with no revellers in attendance - as well as enjoying selected food and drink stalls.

Activities will also be on offer to visitors, including the opening of the Kidzfield pink castle and Greenpeace ship play areas for youngsters.

Discounts are available for Somerset residents booking a stay at Worthy Pastures.
