Aerial photos show deserted Glastonbury in week 200,000 were due to celebrate festival’s 50th anniversary

A LONE cow sits in front of the skeleton of Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage — when the festival should have been celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Up to 200,000 people had been due at Michael Eavis’s Worthy Farm site in Somerset this weekend.


This year Sir Paul McCartney, Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar were set to headline the festival.

But, with the coronavirus pandemic forcing this year’s cancellation, a ‘virtual’ festival is being held this weekend with iconic headline slots shown again on the BBC.

These will include performances from David Bowie, Oasis and Adele.

Aviation photographer Stephen Bath captured aerial shots of the legendary site with no mud in sight.

It was a very different story a year ago when huge crowds gathered to take in musical performances at the 900 acre site in Pilton, Somerset.

Glastonbury was first held in 1970, with last year’s festival headlined by Stormzy, The Killers and The Cure.

Mr Eavis’ farm is so big that it can take festivalgoers an hour to get from one side of the site to the other.
