No Glastonbury Festival in 2018

Those that missed out on tickets to this year’s Glastonbury Festival might be disappointed to learn that there is no festival in 2018.

Every four years Glastonbury takes a break to let the fields recover across the farm, and this ‘fallow year’ lands on 2018 this time around.

“We can confirm that we will be taking our next fallow year in 2018, in order to give the farm, the village and the festival team the traditional year off.

“There are no plans to hold an event at another location in 2018,” organisers confirmed in September last year.

Glastonbury Festival will next take place in 2019 where you can expect even bigger and better things, with acts from all across the World appearing.

Emily Eavis has kept ‘really big’ secret about Glastonbury Festival

Emily Eavis has revealed that there is a ‘really big secret’ about Glastonbury Festival that she has kept under wraps.

The headline acts have already been confirmed as Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran along with a host of other artists.

But the daughter of founder Michael Eavis says there are still things that haven’t been announced.

“We’ve managed to keep some big secrets recently and there’s a couple more this year that haven’t gone out yet as well, ” she told BBC Newsbeat.

“There’s a really big one. I haven’t even hinted or told anyone it’s coming and we’ve managed to keep it completely quiet for the first time ever.”

Speculation suggests it could either be a big addition to the line-up or the annoucement of a new area at the festival.

This year Glastonbury Festival takes place between 21st – 25th June 2017.

Line-up for Shangri-la 2017 confirmed by Glastonbury Festival organisers

Organisers of Glastonbury Festival 2017 have confirmed the line-up for Shangri-la.

This year the area comes with a change of theme from the traditional heaven and hell, instead taking on the theme ‘recycle, re-use, resist’.

You can see the acts that have been confirmed on the official poster below.

The official website has given fans a taste of what to expect in their description:

“Giant Towers of Trash now dominate the Shangri-La skyline. Structures have formed from the scrap, dwellings made of detritus, art from the embers.

“A GAS TOWER looms over the site – harnessing the creative energy around it. A symbol of a bygone industrial era, it has reformed here, at the epicentre of the Digital Revolution. 360 degrees of awe-inspiring audio visual action.

A host of other bands and musicians have already been confirmed for the 2017 bash including Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran as headliners on the famous Pyramid Stage. Check out the rest on our Glastonbury line-up page.
