As music fans patiently await the return of full-scale gigs and shows later this summer, Live At Worthy Farm encapsulates how audiences and artists alike have adapted over the past year, using technology to reinvent the thrill of live performance. In that same spirit, O2 is offering its customers the chance to join this unique global event.
Nina Bibby, CMO, at O2 said: “We’re really excited to offer our customers the chance to join the Glastonbury Presents: Live at Worthy Farm stream on us, as it’s no doubt set to be the biggest of its kind. Although music fans can’t all be together on the farm this year, this event is the ideal way to show everyone what it’s going to be like to watch live music once again. And as we all prepare to take the next steps out of lockdown, our range of Priority rewards, including these live stream tickets, are designed to help customers truly mark the most out of every moment as they share experiences with friends and families once again.”
Ric Salmon, CEO, Driift: “Collaboration is at the core of Driift’s business, and we’re delighted to work with O2 to ensure even more fans can enjoy this unique online event.
