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, 6th September, 2019. It will be co-headlined by 2018 Mercury Award winners Wolf Alice and mystery Special Guests to be announced. Sam Richardson & The Renegades and Pattern Pusher complete the bill.

Pilton Party gates open at 5pm. Live music is due to finish around 11pm, with a DJ until midnight. Pilton Party is an open-air show in a field, so please check the weather and wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

Car parking is free, follow the signs on the A361. Free shuttle buses will also run back to Shepton and Glastonbury towns after the show. Please do not arrive by foot along the A361, as it is not suitable for pedestrians

The shuttle buses run from Red Gate car park (from approximately where the bus station is for the Festival). There will be signs from the concrete road which leads up to the car park from the event.

There are two designated shuttle routes – Red Gate car park to Shepton, and Red Gate car park to Glastonbury. The buses start at 11.30pm, and the last buses will leave at approx 2.00am, or later if there is enough demand.

Please note the shuttle bus only runs at the end of the night and not for bringing people in, and the bus stop will only be staffed from approx 11.00pm.

There is no accommodation / camping at Pilton Party, but head to Visit Somerset for info on places to stay.

The primary public safety aim of this event is to ensure no harm comes to those that attend. So please read and take notice of the event Terms & Conditions below. The easiest way to ensure no harm comes to anyone is to make sure you don’t over-do it, and not to take any illegal substances – there is no such thing as a safe drug!

Bringing your own alcohol to the event is permitted, however please note you may be searched on your initial and only entry and quantities considered in excess of ‘personal use’ may be confiscated. For guidance purposes this may be one litre of wine, 6 cans of lager, or 350ml of spirits per person on initial and only entry. Pragmatic discretion will be applied including consideration to time of entry.

Alcohol will be confiscated from anyone who appears to be under 25 who cannot provide government approved photo ID to verify they are 18 or over. There are bars on site, but please note that they are cash only.
