As Glastonbury 2017 ends, co-organiser Emily Eavis has said: “It has to be the best one yet.”
Michael Eavis, founder of the festival, said that despite it being hard work, he was “Already regretting” the choice to take a year off, and said that while it was 100% confirmed, “There’s one band I want to re-form – if they re-form, I’ll change my mind”.
Michael and Emily Eavis were adamant the festival would return again in 2019, and confirmed they had already booked acts for their 50th birthday in 2020.
“It’s an incredible feat, actually. We’ve been through so many struggles to get here.”
Despite his five decades curating Glastonbury, Eavis said he still had a wishlist of bands he was hoping to entice to the festival.
Eavis described the new festival venture, to be called The Variety Bazaar, as the “Last big gamble of my life”.
