The move will allow the Worthy Farm to recover

Glastonbury 2019 will take place at a new location about 100 miles from the original site at Worthy Farm in an effort to protect the land, The BBC reports.

The site has not been announced, but is “towards the Midlands,” according to festival founder Michael Eavis. Eavis revealed that he is planning to hold the festival at the new site every five years to allow his farm – which has been home to the Glastonbury festival since 1970 – some time to recover. Eavis insisted that he did not want to move the festival permanently.

“I’m arranging to move the show [but] it would be a huge loss to Somerset if it went there forever,” he said.
