Glastonbury have announced the first details about the 2019 festival. 

As previously reported, Glastonbury is taking a break in 2018, and will be coming back the following year. 

The festival will take place June 26th-30th. 

Speaking to NME, Emily Eavis said that 'radical changes' will be coming to it. 

'Well the years off are normally quite busy actually. We spend a lot of time looking at everything and doing bigger, long-term projects. Looking at tickets and passes and things like that. There will be a lot of work to be done, but it’s sad to think about it at the moment, because it’s been such an amazing festival. I can’t really remember one quite like this.'

Eavis added 'When we think about a year off, we’re like ‘oh, that’s a shame – but I think the farm needs and it and the village needs it and we’ll come back with some new ideas as well.'

No acts have been confirmed for 2019, but NME also report that two major headliners have been booked for the festival's 50th anniversary in 2020. 

The new festival that they're looking to launch will happen in 2021 and won't be in the usual Glasto location of Worthy Farm.
