Emily Eavis makes statement on selfie sticks at this year's festival

Emily Eavis Glastonbury co-organiser has revealed that they won't be banning selfie sticks at this year's event.

In a new interview with the NME, she said they are "not really in the busineses of banning stuff".

"A lot of festivals have banned selfie sticks, but we're not really in the business of banning stuff. We haven't really decided where we stand on them. I'm going to walk around and see if they're getting in the way or not!"

She then continued to discuss this year's new woodland glade area at Glastonbury, and the changes they've made to The Other Stage: "That's where Strummerville will be located this year. It's going to have a quiet, kind of campfire vibe.

"We've got a new structure for the Other Stage. Currently it's the standard dome stage, which you see everywhere. The new one is a rectangular stage, which hasn't been seen anywhere, and then on the front of it, Joe Rush has done an amazing installation. My project is to try give the Other Stage its own identity because it's an amazing stage with so much incredible music on it."
