Where is Glastonbury this year?
As ever, it’s being held at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset.
Every four years, the festival has a year off to give the ground a chance to heal – all those festival-goers can be quite punishing for poor old Worthy Farm. But the show will go on during 2019’s “fallow year”, as the Eavis’ have found a new site, possibly in the Midlands.
The Eavis’ are also planning a new festival called Variety Bazaar at a separate site, which could take place in 2019, meaning Glastonbury will take a year off after all. But it’s all very much up in the air at the moment. Watch this space…
