Glastonbury Festival set for 2019 site move

Glastonbury Festival is set for a temporary site move in 2019.

The festival will take place as normal in 2017, will take a fallow year in 2018 then - as Michael Eavis had today indicated - in 2019 may move to a site "100 miles towards the Midlands" for a year.

“I am arranging one year off, say every fifth year or so, to try and move to a site that’s more suitable,” Eavis said. “But it would be a huge loss for Somerset if it went there for ever, would it not?

“But I’ve found a site about 100 miles [away], up towards the Midlands,” he continued. “We’ve got a wonderful product what we do and we can do it almost anywhere. I love my own farm… I might have to move it eventually.

“Most people are on side now and it’s a wonderful, wonderful boost for the whole of Somerset and beyond as well. I don’t want to lose it for ever, no way.”
