GLASTONBURY Festival's annual ‘thank you’ fundrasing gig for villagers and local people, the Pilton Party, will feature Elbow and Easy Life this year.

The party will return to Worthy Farm on Friday, September 2 after a three-year break. 

A festival spokesperson said: “The show will be headlined by Mercury Prize winners Elbow, who played one of the standout Pyramid Stage sets of Glastonbury 2022.

“They’re joined on the bill by Leicester band Easy Life, who also gave a sparkling Pyramid performance at this year’s festival.”

They will be supported by The Velvet Hands and Inkara.

Gates will open at 5pm. The live music is due to finish at around 11pm, and there will be a DJ set from Patmandu until midnight.

This year's Pilton Party will feature a new travel option running from Glastonbury and Shepton Mallet. 

The spokesperson said: “We are pleased to confirm introduction of a new Pilton Party shuttle bus excursion ticket for 2022 with shuttles to the site running from Glastonbury Town Hall and Shepton Mallet Cenotaph between 5pm and 7pm, and return shuttles starting from 11pm.”

There will be no accommodation or camping at Worthy Farm for the concerts.
