Michael and Emily Eavis confirm a new event billed as The Glastonbury Festival team presents The Variety Bazaar. Likely to take place in or after 2019.
Don’t get confused! Glastonbury Festival will continue, this is a new event that will be organised by the team behind Glastonbury Festival. Likely to take place in the gap years, when Michael gives the farm a break from the stresses of the festival.
The event sounds as if it will take place at Cirencester Park in the Midlands.
“That’s a good name don’t you think?”
“It’s half way to the Midlands from here…and there’s only one landowner. I’ve got 22 landowners where I am now. I just wonder whether the next generation will want to negotiate with so many people. It’s a very difficult job to hold it together.“
Eavis went on to admit that he was taking “a huge risk”
“I’ve been a risk taker all my life. In 47 years of taking risks, so far touch wood, I haven’t come unstuck.
