Pilton Party


After a three-year break, Glastonbury Festival’s annual ‘thank you’ fundraising gig for villagers, workers and local people – known as the Pilton Party – returns to Worthy Farm on Friday 2nd September, 2022.

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.

Support from The Velvet Hands and Inkara.
