Glastonbury Festival organisers have announced a new attraction for 2008’s event, an entertainment area running until six in the morning.

Shangri-la covers 40 acres and will encompass 12 stages and various attractions.

The area will be based around a traditional village green and will feature a selection of bands and musical acts, which have yet to be announced.

Speaking about the three fields hosting Shangri-la, Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis said: “These are the fields that started off as Wango Riley’s [a legendary stage], back in the old travellers’ days. They’ve got history, character and a great track record.”
