If you loved attending or watching this year’s Glastonbury festival from home, then there’s potentially good news – it could be moving a whole lot closer to Nottingham.
Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis suggested last year that he could be moving the annual mud fest “100 miles up towards the Midlands” in 2019 to give Worthy Farm a bit more of a break (understandable really, considering these days around 175,000 people go there to party each year).
If successful, the festival – founded in 1970 – could be held in the Midlands every five years to help the land on his farm recover.
Of course, this would mean travel times from Nottingham to the festival could be cut dramatically. Even if Eavis decided to hold it in Stratford upon Avon, that’d be at least an hour sliced off the time to get there – which is good news for Midlands music fans.
Speaking to the BBC, Eavis said: “I’m arranging to move the show [but] it would be a huge loss to Somerset if it went there forever.
“We’ve got a wonderful product what we do and we can do it almost anywhere.
“I love my own farm… I might have to move it eventually.
“Most people are on side now and it’s a wonderful, wonderful boost for the whole of Somerset and beyond as well.
“I don’t want to lose it for ever, no way.”
Nottingham musicians are no stranger to Glasto with Jake Bugg, Sleaford Mods, Indiana and Saint Raymond all gracing stages there – so perhaps Eavis would consider moving it just a tad further ‘north’ to Donington Park – after all it is home to the most popular British summer rock and heavy metal festival, Download.
Considering the site played host to the Monsters of Rock festival from 1980 to the mid 90s as well, it definitely makes the site a logical option for Glasto.
What you sayin’ Mr Eavis?
