Marking 10 years since the area first launched

Emily Eavis has teased that Glastonbury 2017 will feature ‘exciting surprises’ on the Park Stage to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the area first launching.

Eavis’ latest hint has led to speculation that the area will be continuing its tradition of hosting huge secret sets, after the likes of Radiohead, Franz Ferdinand and Pulp have all made surprise appearances over the years.

“Next year will be ten years since we created The Park area so we are planning some exciting surprises to mark the anniversary,” she wrote on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Emily Eavis recently told NME that Glastonbury is due to receive a new area next year.

We can’t give you too many details of, but it’s going to be an area which involves lots and lots of… it’s somewhere between an installation and somewhere where you’ll go to experience watching films and listening to music in a different way,” she said. “It’s a massive addition to the festival. I don’t wanna give it away at the moment, but there’s artists working on it flat out and every day these cars are arriving, which are going to be part of this installation. They’re like ancient cars. It’s very exciting, but we’ll give you more information when we have it. It’s a little bit too early to say.”
