Glastonbury might be on the move from its spiritual home of Worthy Farm in 2018. The festival usually has a rest every five years with farmland remaining fallow to regain and recover from the thousands of footsteps and discarded cream whip canisters.

However bearded Glastonbury daddy Michael Eavis has told the Bristol Post that he has something special planned for 2018, and the event may up sticks for the year and travel to a place outside of Somerset.

Speaking to the publication the 80 year old veteran said “I am now getting too old and don’t want to miss out on any festivals.”

This could be good news for fans who are at a loss as to what to do during the fallow years, giving them a fix of their favourite festival action. Conversely, what it means to the long term future of the event is still as clear as a bit of Glastonbury mud to fans.

The festival was in a spot of bother recently with more than a few eyebrows raised at its behaviour after reports emerged that pollution from the party had killed some endangered fish.

Whether this means that the organisers are now seeking out a more permanent relocation that’s less unkind to the environment or if this move is simply a cynical money making scheme is as yet unrevealed.

In case you didn’t know, the legendary Glastonbury festival takes place from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June 2016 with headline acts Adele, Coldplay and Muse doing their thing. Keep up to date with the latest updates here.
