Michael Eavis says Glasto is going to change its name (!), gives new title

Michael Eavis says Glasto is going to change its name (!), gives new title

Michael Eavis has just admitted that Glastonbury Festival will change its name when it changes location in 2019.

He says that the location will be "100 miles or so North, towards the Midlands" and, though it will feel familiar, it won't go under its usual moniker as he has now announced that the festival’s new name for 2019 will be ‘The Glastonbury Festival team presents The Variety Bazaar’.

"That’s a good name don’t you think?”, Eavis admitted, before going on to discuss the festival's new site..

"It’s half way to the Midlands from here… and there’s only one landowner. I’ve got 22 landowners where I am now. I just wonder whether the next generation will want to negotiate with so many people. It’s a very difficult job to hold it together.”

A huge risk, surely? Yes - and Eavis knows it: “I’ve been a risk taker all my life. In 47 years of taking risks, so far touch wood, I haven’t come unstuck. This might be one risk too far, I don’t know.”

Will it pay off?
