Glastonbury Festival 2022: Pop-up Co-op supermarket returns to Worthy Farm

A pop-up supermarket returns to the Glastonbury Festival this year. The temporary Co-op store will return to Pilton this summer for the five-day event.

The Glastonbury Festival is back in full force in June after a two-year hiatus. It was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

More than 200,000 people will descend on Worthy Farm for the event this year, and festival-goers can pick up all their essentials at the Co-op supermarket built inside a barn. The Co-op store debuted at the festival in 2019.

The store will continue to be parked at its 2019 location – Park Home Ground. The shop will stock all festival essentials, as well as Worthy Farm Reserve Cheddar, which is made from milk from the dairy herd that lives on the Glastonbury Festival site.

Amanda Jennings, Director of Live and Local Marketing at The Co-op, said: “Our festival store is returning to Glastonbury this summer. We are delighted to be able to bring back the ethical, high-quality and value-for-money products. Co-op awards items to serve this unique community and help festival-goers get the most out of their experience.”

Glastonbury Festival 2022 will take place from June 22-26. Artists who will perform at the event include Paul McCartney, Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar and Diana Ross.
