With Glastonbury canceled for the second straight year, the U.K. mega festival is going virtual for 2021.

Coldplay, HAIM and Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn will headline Live at Worthy Farm, an upcoming livestream festival airing May 22 from the Glastonbury grounds.

Other artists on the bill include Wolf Alice, IDLES, Jorja Smith, Kano and Michael Kiwanuka. Additionally, a press release promises that the event will feature a “number of unannounced surprise performances.”

“We are hoping this will bring a bit of Glastonbury to your homes and that for one night only people all over the world will be able to join us on this journey through the farm together!” says festival organizer Emily Eavis.

Tickets are on sale now via WorthyFarm.live.

The in-person Glastonbury is usually held in June. It was canceled for both 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
