Glastonbury Festival may have to relocate
Michael Eavis has said that Glastonbury Festival may have to move from Worthy Farm, where it’s been held since 1970
ith Glastonbury Festival less than a week from starting, the festival’s founder Michael Eavis has claimed that it may have to move away from its Worthy Farm location. Speaking to Sky News, Eavis explained that the reason for any move would be that he does not have sole ownership of the site.
Eavis said, “I’m always worried about the future, about the land not being available because I only own the middle bit. Where the Pyramid is and all the land around it is owned by other people, so that could be a problem long-term.”
Eavis went on to say, “I may have to find a site that’s bigger and is all under the control of one person. That’s the ideal situation, so that might happen in the long term.”
This year’s Glastonbury Festival begins on 24 June and runs through until 28 June. It includes acts such as Lionel Richie, Patti Smith and Paul Weller, with the headline artists being Florence + The Machine, Kanye West and The Who. Foo Fighters were originally down as one of the three headline acts, but were forced to pull out after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg.
