Again With the Glastonbury Rumors - The Festival Will Go On


By: Spacelab Research Staff

Another day, another Glastonbury rumor. This time it's centered around the future of the Glastonbury Festival, and whether it will last. It stems from a small interview with Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis' daughter, Emily, and what she had to say about the future of the festival when speaking to the Orange World news service.


When asked if Glastonbury has a limited time span, Emily replied:


"Yeah, I probably do, to be honest. We had a kind of retrospective time during Christmas, talking about it and whether it's a long-term thing. I kind of feel that we should pile everything into this as if it were the last. It's a risky, risky business and it’d be nice to think… to know that it could go on forever, but I don't know if that's possible."


Then the web hyperventilated while posting reactionary responses, one after the other, about how 'the future of Glastonbury was in doubt.'


Which lead to her posting a response on the Glastonbury web site today which read:


"Hello again. I just wanted to set the record straight about a few stories that have been flying around this morning, about this year being the last Festival. I never said - or even insinuated - that this would be the last. What I did say, was that we treat every year like it's the last, in terms of energy and enthusiasm, rather than thinking about it in terms of a ten year business plan. It's amazing how these things get twisted!"
