Thousands of music fans could enjoy performances from the pyramid stage at Glastonbury's festival this year despite talks of cancellations earlier in 2021.
Plans have been submitted for potential of a two day concert at Worthy Farm with a maximum capacity of 50,000 this September.
The event would be considerably smaller than the typical Glastonbury weekend which usually welcomes more than 200,000 attendees.
Writing about the application on Instagram in March, festival organiser Emily Eavis said: "For those asking for an update on our plans later this year, we have put in an application for a licence for a concert at the farm in September (around the time we'd usually do Pilton Party).
"Of course, we've got no idea whether we will be able to do that, but we wanted to get the application in to be in with a chance.
"Unlikely we'll have any news for a couple of months - but will let you know right here when we do."
On Wednesday May 12th 2021 Mendip council are set to meet and discuss the application further.
Glastonbury are also hosting a special livestream event named ‘Live At Worthy Farm’ this month. Coldplay, Damon Albarn, Wolf Alice and Haim are all set to play the concert on May 22, which promises “a five-hour journey through an evening at Worthy Farm,” adding that the event is “going to be like the festival, but without the people.”
