Glastonbury Festival is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world and a template for all the festivals that have come after it.
Glastonbury Festival is taking place 26th-30th June, 2019.
The Festival takes place in a beautiful location - 900 acres in the Vale of Avalon, an area steeped in symbolism, mythology and religious traditions dating back many hundreds of years. It's where King Arthur may be buried, where Joseph of Arimathea is said to have walked, where leylines converge. And the site is enormous - more than a mile and a half across, with a perimeter of about eight and a half miles.
You will be redirected to the official Glastonbury Festival website with information about the festival on the run up to the next festival being held on the 26th to 30th June 2019.
Glastonbury Festival's worldwide reputation means that the council has a huge responsibility in ensuring that it undertakes its statutory duties professionally. Along with other responsible authorities it scrutinises management plans, audits and monitors the event to ensure compliance with the licence and other relevant legislation.
The council will endeavour to provide all services as normal whilst the festival is taking place. However, the council does have a duty to monitor the licence of the festival and as a result some council resource will be used during the festival. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
