Established in the 1970’s, Glastonbury is considered by many as the mother of all festivals. Taking place in Pilton, England, every year Worthy Farm transforms into a utopia that features the best in music, dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret, and other arts. But 2019 may bring some changes.
Like many outdoor festivals, the land takes a beating and the additional rain – that will undeniably happen at Glastonbury – doesn’t help. In an effort to combat the damage more than 200,000 fans leave behind, the festival takes a break every five years to allow the land to recover. But in an interview with BBC, festival organizer Michael Eavis shared that he’s arranging to move the site, and that move could be more than 100 miles away “towards the Midlands”. But, don’t fret! Eavis, who owns the farm, reassured fans that the move is only temporary and that Glastonbury will return to its home.
So relax, next year’s festival is set to take place on the farm we’ve grown to love, Radiohead is performing, and a second festival site could mean Glastonbury every year! Stay tuned, we’ll share more details as the festival approaches.
