From the very beginning, Glastonbury Festival was established to celebrate music, culture and togetherness – inspiring a respect for both our environment and each other. This passion for the arts and all people still underpins the Festival today, and we continue to strive towards a culturally rich, inclusive and accepting world both at Glastonbury Festival and beyond our gates.
Throughout the Festival’s 54-year history, Glastonbury has offered an increasingly diverse and representative range of music and contemporary performing arts, of which we are incredibly proud. And through the Worthy Pledge – which all ticket-holders and staff agree to uphold – all those who work for or come to Glastonbury Festival are expected to ‘treat the fields and the people in them with kindness and respect’.
The Festival is proactive in embedding diversity and inclusion throughout all that we do, and discrimination of any sort – whether it be on the grounds of race, gender, ethnicity, visible or unseen disabilities, sexual orientation, heritage, religion, age, family status, social class or education – is not tolerated.
