It’s official: The Glastonbury Festival will be staying at its classic home of Worthy Farm for the foreseeable future.

In spite of past comments from Glasto founder Michael Eavis about a new location in the years to come, his daughter and fellow festival organiser Emily has revealed that a brand new contract has been signed with Worthy Farm.

“Glastonbury will always be here at Worthy Farm,” Emily told BBC 6 Music. “We have just signed a 17-year contract with one of our neighbouring farmers, so it’s very much as solid as it can be here at Worthy Farm.”

She added: “Glastonbury Festival will always be here and hopefully we can keep it going. We’ve managed to keep it going for this long so hopefully we can keep it going a bit longer.”

The Eavis family are also working on a separate festival called Variety Bazaar, to take place over the next few years at a separate location.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Katy Perry, Lorde, Royal Blood, Barry Gibb, Stormzy, Emeli Sande, Solange, Run The Jewels and Haim will be joining this year’s jam-packed Glasto lineup.

The event will take place from June 21 through June 25, with Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran headlining the Pyramid Stage over the three weekend nights.
