Glastonbury confirms all-new festival for 2018

Indie | Thursday 5th May 2016 |

Glastonbury curator Emily Eavis has confirmed an all-new event for  2018 or 2019.

Announced on Twitter  earlier today, Eavis said “we’re planning a big event elsewhere for 2018 or 2019 but it hasn’t even got a name yet so watch this space for more info!”, whilst also confirming to BBC News that the new ‘festival’ is “not going to be called Glastonbury”.

“The deal on the year off is we’re planning a show – another event – somewhere nearby. It’s either going to be in 2018 or 2019. It’s going to be the whole team behind the Glastonbury Festival but it’s not going to be called Glastonbury. The idea [is to plan] an event which is more of a visual feast, something really spectacular, using all of these incredible creative people that we work with all year. That’s an idea that really excites us.”

We can't fucking wait!
