As usual tickets are expected to be released in October with a £50 deposit to secure.
Founder Michael Eavis said he will not consider moving the festival to later in the summer to avoid the wet, and blamed the torrential rain that hit the site in the weeks before the gates opened on global warming.
When Eavis was asked about whether or not this would be the last year Glastonbury would be hosted at Worthy farm, he said: “Absolutely not. It’s just important that we try another site. We could have all kinds of problems here with the livestock we have – horrible things like foot and mouth – which could close us down. Longleat is only 18 miles down the road and it looks like a good place if we ever did an alternative site.”
“That’s really on the back burner for now but it’s something we are looking at for the next fallow year, which is likely to be in 2019,”
