Glastonbury 2016 is almost here. The mammoth British festival is set to hit its usual spot at Pilton’s Worthy Farm from June 22-26 and several of its biggest artists are recording their sets for a charitable compilation. 

Coldplay, Muse and Chvrches are among the artists who have signed on for Oxfam Presents: Stand As One - Glastonbury Live 2016. It arrives in memory of Jo Cox, the British member of parliament who was murdered last week. Cox was a champion of refugee rights who worked with the global poverty-fighting organization Oxfam extensively. Through Oxfam, profits from the compilation will benefit refugees worldwide.

“The album is part of Oxfam’s new campaign, to put pressure on world leaders to welcome more refugees, to prevent families from being separated and to keep people fleeing their homes safe from harm,” Glastonbury fest writes
