Glastonbury to stay at Worthy Farm for another 17 years

Emily Eavis has confirmed that Glastonbury Festival will remain at Worthy Farm for at least another 17 years.

The farm in Pilton has been the spiritual home of the festival since it was founded back in September 1970.

“We have just signed a 17-year contract with one of our neighbouring farmers, so it’s very much as solid as it can be here at Worthy Farm,” Eavis told the BBC.

“Glastonbury will always be here at Worthy Farm.”

Rumours of a move had been widespread in the build up to this year’s line-up announcement.

However, there could be a smaller separate festival developed according to the daughter of legendary founder Michael Eavis.

“We are going to do another festival at some point called the Variety Bazaar which is going to be something different – it’s the same team, but a different idea, a smaller thing, maybe. It’s still in discussion.

This year Glastonbury Festival takes place from 21 – 25th June 2017. Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran have been officially confirmed as headliners, with a host of other acts joining them on the bill.
