Emily Eavis, who helps run the UK festival, reckons the new event will launch at a new location in 2018 or 2019.
The announcement follows recent rumours that Glastonbury would be moving from its long-running Worthy Farm location in Somerset to a new venue as early as 2017, though Emily Eavis has since denied this. Instead, the team are planning a new festival in a new location, scheduled for 2018 or 2019. "We are going to do a show somewhere else with the same team behind Glastonbury but it hasn't got a name yet and we're still not entirely sure what shape it's going to take," she said.
Glastonbury Festival 2016 will take place from June 22nd through 26th. For the extensive day-by-day lineup, including set times, head to the official site. Among the acts playing this year are LCD Soundsystem, Carl Cox, Skepta, Four Tet, Floating Points, James Blake and recent additions Tame Impala and Blur's Damon Albarn. Radiohead, who were rumoured to appear as a secret guest, will not perform in 2016, according to Eavis.
