Glastonbury Festival Theatre & Circus: Full Coverage 2024

Glastonbury Festival is the world’s largest green field performing arts festival with hundreds of stages and thousands of performances day and night over a full five days. This year’s festival runs from Wednesday 26 June until the early hours of Sunday 30 June.


To many who haven’t yet graced the fields of Worthy Farm, where farmer Michael Eavis founded the festival on his working dairy farm in 1970, the festival conjures images of music superstars blasting hits from the famous Pyramid Stage to a see of festival-goers – this year sees a much anticipated set from Dua Lipa, the return of Coldplay and global megastar SZA. Others may think of the tales of debauchery they have heard rumours of in the festival’s so-called South East Corner.

But what some people may be less aware of is the vast array of alternatives to music and late night mischief that are available across the festival; no less so than in the Theatre & Circus fields where over 1000 performers from around the world will perform from mid-morning right through to the wee small hours. 

Comedy, cabaret, circus, poetry, clowning, juggling, magic – you name it, it’s there; and we’ll be there to take you where the television cameras don’t always reach. Between now and the festival coming to close in the early hours of the Monday morning, we’ll be bringing you previews of eighteen Theatre & Circus areas, interviews with some of the most exciting acts and reviews of the best of what’s happens on-site, as well as daily round-ups through the weekend.

So, whether you’re attending the festival, or looking on from afar; come with us to Glastonbury Festival 2024.
