When is Glastonbury? June 22-26th 2016

Where is Glastonbury held? Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset

Glastonbury information: Notorious for hosting some of the biggest and most aspiring names in music, Glastonbury Festival takes place over a 5-day period, come rain or shine, down in Pilton, Somerset as it has done for the past 45 years. The festival is also home to a wide variety of acts; from circus to comedy as well as a plethora of different artists spanning multiple genres.

Glastonbury 2015 saw a mixture of rock royalty, in the form of King of the Mods, Paul Weller alongside Kanye West, who managed to split the Main Stage crowd in two with a more-than-memorable rendition of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. The big news of the year though was Foo Fighters' last-minute pull out of their Friday-night headline slot after Dave Grohl broke his leg. But the show must (and did ) go on, with Florence + The Machine taking up the mantle and delivering a spectacular Glasto performance at the eleventh hour.

Just like every year, there are plenty of Glastonbury headline rumours flying around for 2016 already. This year, Adele is hotly tipped to be one of the main events. And could AD/DC even be making an appearance on Worthy Farm? One thing's for sure, there's bound to be a lot of surprises.
