There have been a few changes down on Worthy Farm...
Glastonbury Festival‘s 2019 map has been revealed – check it out below.
After announcing more acts for this year’s event earlier today (April 16), organisers have offered another glimpse of what to expect at Worthy Farm thanks to an updated map of the site.
Notable changes include the previously-announced Victorian seaside pier and the extended Block 9 area, which has now doubled in size. The new pier attraction is located above The Park in Pennard Hill Ground, at the side of the Tipi Village.
Although a new “micro venue” called No Average Groove is expected to be added to Silver Hayes, it has been noted that it does not feature on the new map. Arcadia’s iconic spider installation, which is set to be replaced in 2019, is also still shown.
