Glastonbury Festival 2021

Live at Worthy Farm

Glastonbury Festival approached Block9 to take this year’s event online due to the ongoing pandemic. Filmed on location at Worthy Farm, the five hour show took viewers on a journey across the festival site, with the world's biggest artists performing at landmark sites like the Pyramid Stage and the Stone Circle.

I worked alongside Block9 to design, build and deliver the ‘after hours’ section of the show, intended to capture the spirit of the South East corner of the festival; synonymous with dance music and late night partying. The one hour finale featured performances from Honey Dijon and Roisin Murphy within a retrofitted 1970s New Age traveller's coach. Inspired by M25 parties and woodland raves, the set and its dancers portrayed a highly diverse, future-facing club utopia that brought the show to a close. My role within the project spanned the design and art direction of the set, as well as managing the build crew on site.
