2018 was a fallow year for the festival but the next Glastonbury is almost upon us! The dates have been confirmed as June 26-30th 2019.
Where is Glastonbury held?
Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset
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 48 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.
2017 saw a gigantic trio of headliners taking over Worthy Farm and a genre-spanning lineup. Foo Fighters, Radiohead and Ed Sheeran took to the stage with Kris Kristoffersen in the legends slot. Other notable sets came from Dizzee Rascal, London Grammar, Lorde, Katy Perry and BBK.
The first 2019 headliner announcement was Stormzy, which got a mixed response from ticket holders. The other two headliners were to be The Killers and The Cure – an all male line-up.
