It includes the agreement that any live music shows must take place on the Pyramid Stage, while a maximum capacity of 49,999 people (including staff, performers, and crew) will be permitted on site and no camping will be allowed.
“Whenever a license application is considered, Mendip rightly assesses the impact of an event on local people and seeks to find a decent balance.” Councillor Sam Phripp, who is chair of licensing at the council, said.
“With regard to Glastonbury Festival Events Limited holding a concert in September, we’ve heard concerns from residents, and those concerns are reflected in more than 50 conditions that have been added to this license. We believe they’re sensible measures, and match the perceived risk of the event.
“With a view to Covid-19, of course, any event would have to be Covid-safe, and Mendip will work with other organizations and the organizers to make sure that’s the case.”
Phripp added that they “hope that, Covid-depending, this event will be a success, and we look forward to welcoming music lovers back to our corner of Somerset this autumn.”
