Elbow and Easy Life announced for Glastonbury’s Pilton Party

The event returns after a three year break

Elbow and Easy Life have been announced as headliners for this year’s Glastonbury Pilton Party.

Both acts will perform at the Worthy Farm bash, which will be held for the first time since 2019, on September 2. They also appeared on the Pyramid Stage during the summer.

Every September, a few bands return to Worthy Farm for the annual bash, which is put on as a “thank you” fundraiser event for nearby residents and workers.

On the day, the gates will open at 5pm BST, with the live music set to finish around 11pm. This will be followed by a DJ set from Patmandu which will run until midnight. For more information head here.

Supergrass returned to The Other Stage this year to perform a host of hits from their back catalogue.

Frontman Gaz Coombes joked how they were “two years late”, adding: “Traffic was a bitch,” when the band took to the stage.

The first Pilton Party took place in 1984 and has seen a host of big names headline it, including Liam Gallagher in 2018.
