Oxfam and Greenpeace received £500k from the Worthy Farm fest in 2013
Glastonbury Festival raised around £2 million for charity during 2013, it’s been confirmed.
The announcement comes via Glastonbury’s official website, with Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid among the “hundreds of other worthy causes” that will benefit from the fund.
Oxfam and Greenpeace in particular received £500,000 each last year, while the festival raised £260,000 for WaterAid.
“Every year we try to give as much to charity as possible and we’re thrilled to be able to do this,” Emily Eavis said in a statement to NME. “Thanks to everyone for coming and playing a big part in allowing us to reach this mark.”
Tickets for Glastonbury 2015 sold out in record time. This week Noel Gallagher stated that he would headline the festival “if asked”.
