Emily Eavis confirms Glastonbury will have fallow year in 2026

July 1st, 2024

It’s official: Glastonbury‘s having a fallow year in 2026.

Emily Eavis has confirmed the year off in a new chat with The Sun. It comes after Eavis had revealed earlier in the month (June 10) that she was thinking of having a fallow year for the Worthy Farm bash in two years time (2026). The last time the festival had an official fallow year was in 2018.

Speaking to The Sun, Eavis said that the upcoming fallow year is being taken to “give the land a rest”. Glastonbury will return in 2027 after next year’s edition. Eavis also shared that she and her team are already planning for 2025’s bash at Worth Farm, and are “already in talks with some acts”.

“The festival before a fallow year is always a fun one to plan, because you almost have to fit two years into one,” Eavis said of next year’s edition.

Reflecting on this year’s bash at Worthy Farm, Eavis said: “It’s got to be the best one yet. Every single one of our vast, incredible crew is crucial to making this event work. And, of course, it simply wouldn’t exist without the participation of the kind, brilliant, respectful festival-goers.

The 2024 edition of Glastonbury has now come to a close, with SZA turning in a four-star headlining showcase at the Pyramid Stage despite technical issues, while The National put on a five-star closing slot at the Other Stage.
