Emily Eavis confirms plans for new festival in “2019 or 2018”

The Glastonbury organiser also denies there's any plan for a Radiohead secret set this year.
Glastonbury’s organisers will “definitely” do a festival in a new location, Emily Eavis has confirmed in an interview with the Guardian.

Eavis had already said there were plans to do something new earlier this year. In the piece, she gives more detail on what it might be.

The event will take place in “2019 or 2018, but probably 2019” on a new site.

“We are going to do a show somewhere else with the same team behind Glastonbury but it hasn’t got a name yet and we’re still not entirely sure what shape it’s going to take,” she explined. “For now we’re all [focused] on Worthy Farm. We’re not thinking too far down that road because we’re quite busy with this one at the moment!”

Elsewhere in the piece she confirms tributes at this year’s Glastonbury to David Bowie, Lemmy and Prince, and denied any plans for Radiohead to play a secret set.

“There’s no planned Radiohead gig at the moment,” she reveals. “But obviously we would love to have Radiohead back. Personally I’d love to have them play next year but at the moment there’s no confirmation, so we’ll have to see.”
