Glastonbury set to move to new site in 2017

Glastonbury Festival has become so big it’s on the move according to reports.

According to a tweet sent by the Oxford Union, founder Michael Eavis, this year could be the end of an era by moving from the legendary Worthy Farm to a new site in 2017.

“Glastonbury is so big, we’re looking to potentially move in 2017. It’s a huge operation and the site might not be suitable any more,” said Eavis.

“We don’t own all the land – I could have bought the land for Glastonbury but I don’t think that is the right thing to do.”

Worthy Farm has been the home of Glastonbury since it launched under the name Pilton Pop, Blues & Folk Festival in 1970.

This years festival – that runs from June 22 through June 26 – will see Muse, Adele and Coldplay headlining the main stage.

Jess Glynne, Ellie Goulding, Years & Years, Sigur Ros, New Order, Disclosure, Bastille, The 1975, PJ Harvey, Grimes, Two Door Cinema Club and Jake Bugg will also appear over the weekend.
