Glastonbury boss supports Somerset festival

Micheal Eavis gives blessing to bash

Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis has given his support to this summer’s Sunrise Festival.

The bash is taking place in south Somerset, near Bearley Farm, Tintinhull from May 31 to June 4.

Speaking about the festival, Eavis told Yeovil News: “The Sunrise Festival seems to me to be something like it was at Glastonbury about 35 years ago.

“If you can’t get our tickets for Glastonbury and you want a bit of something a little less frantic and hectic then have a go at this show.”

The line-up includes Alabama 3, Ozric Tentacles, Eat Static, Dreadzone and The Egg.

The 12 stages will also host circus acts, cinemas, games and dance workships.
