One of the most well-known music festivals in the world, Glastonbury Festival, has finally reopened to music lovers after a three-year absence. Michael Eavis, the festival’s originator, has referred to the fact that it can happen once more as a “miracle” as Covid-19 blocked it from doing so in previous years, even preventing it from participating in its 50th-anniversary celebration in 2020.

Emily Eavis, Michaels’ daughter, said: “To actually be able to see people there and welcome in, watch them streaming in and running to pitch their tents up… it’s an amazing feeling. We were doing so much towards the 50th [anniversary], obviously, some of that is still playing out this year and we’ve melded all these ideas into this one festival.”

“I think every detail and part of the process has been devoured and savoured by everybody, it’s so precious.”
