The Dalai Lama to speak in King's Meadow on Sunday morning

June 28, 2015


We’re very excited to confirm that His Holiness the Dalai Lama will visit Glastonbury on Sunday 28 June. The Tibetan spiritual leader is coming as a guest of the Festival as part of a four day UK visit. The key themes throughout the visit will be the promotion of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s message of compassion, non-violence and the oneness of humanity.

Emily Eavis said: “We’re honoured to welcome the Dalai Lama to Glastonbury 2015. He will be talking in the Green Fields and exploring the farm this Sunday as part of his trip to the UK. What a special moment for the Festival!”

Chonpel Tsering (Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama) said, “This upcoming visit by His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be particularly notable as it takes place just a week before His Holiness turns 80 on 6 July 2015. The visit will offer all those attending the events, and beyond, an opportunity to hear the message of compassion, hope, dialogue and tolerance of this widely respected spiritual and moral authority.”
