Festival organiser also reveals new venues and changes to the Arcadia area of the Worthy Farm event
Glastonbury festival organiser Emily Eavis has said that there will be new stages and venues at this year’s event, as well as teasing other new developments on the site.
Over 80 new acts were added to the line-up of the festival last week, with Kasabian confirmed to close the whole show on the Sunday (June 29).
Eavis speaks to NME in this week’s issue, on newsstands and available digitally from tomorrow (April 9).
Discussing the changes to the site at Worthy Farm, she says: “We’ve got a few new little venues and a couple of new stages that are still to be announced – I can’t tell you much about them. And Strummerville are coming up to The Park too.”
Elsewhere, festival goers can expect even more to do once the bands have finished each night, “Arcadia has got a massive new space a bit nearer to The Park and it’s kind of like a whole town, really,” says Eavis. “The late night area will be really spread out; there’s so much late night entertainment everywhere now, not just in one area.”
Kasabian join Arcade Fire at the top the Glastonbury bill with the Canadian band set to headline on the Friday (June 27). View the full line-up additions here, and click below to see Kasabian talking to NME about their headline set.
