Glastonbury Festivals’ Licensing

TLT advised Glastonbury Festivals on the deal.

Glastonbury Festivals obtained the ‘Equinox’ licence.

The final licence, granted on 28 May 2021, contains all of the organisers’ requests, including noise provisions that will allow visitors to enjoy a great experience when they attend the new 50,000 capacity show at Worthy Farm in September.

The licence has over 50 conditions and the application was particularly high profile and complex due to ongoing health and safety concerns under the global pandemic.
