Eavis Talks New Home For Glasto

PILTON (CelebrityAccess) — Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis revealed that he hopes to move the successful festival from its longtime home.

In an interview at the Royal Bath and West Show, Eavis told UK television network ITV that he hopes to move the festival to Longleat in the southwestern part of the UK within the next "two or three years."

Eavis told the television network that there were no firm plans to move the festival yet, but confirmed that negotiations pursuant to that goal were underway.

"I'm talking to Longleat everyday actually, so I hope we can come to an agreement with them eventually. But we haven't done so yet," Eavis told ITV.

Glastonbury has been held at Worthy Farm near Pilton in Somerset since the early 1970s. However, the festival takes a year-long pause every 5 years to let the ground 'rest.' – Staff Writers
