Glastonbury Raised £105,000 For Oxfam Refugee Appeal | Music News

 

Glastonbury’s charity auction in aid of Oxfam’s Refugee Appeal has raised a total of £105,000, festival organiser Emily Eavis has announced. The Glastonbury Festival auction saw tickets and items being sold primarily via online retailer eBay.

 

Beyond tickets, auction-items included a tour of Worthy Farm (where Glastonbury Festival is held each year), by founder Michael Eavis, an opportunity to DJ at the festival, pieces of art, and the opportunity to press the ‘fire’ button on the enormous pyrotechnic-spider dance stage, Arcadia.

 

Emily Eavis, speaking about the auctions earlier this year, stated, “The plight of the refugees who have left their homes due to fear and aggression has moved everyone in the Glastonbury Festival team and we want to do something to help. We hope this auction will raise many thousands of pounds so that Oxfam can deliver the support these people so desperately need”.

I am a recent Ancient History graduate and am now slowly making my way into the music industry. Right now I’m stretching my journalistic muscles and learning my way around the business. Musically speaking I’m all over the place, with a heavy upbringing of dad-rock, branching into heavy metal in my teens and all things electronic in my early twenties. In my free time I love creating and playing music, reading and trying (and failing) to sculpt myself into an Adonis at the gym.
