What, then, of Glastonbury, which is taking 2012 off (freeing up 135,000 potential customers for the other festivals)? Are they really calling it a day in three or four years?
"No," smiles Emily Eavis. "My dad said that the week after the festival, which is always a really bad time to do an interview. So much energy, enthusiasm and passion go into each year that by the time everyone's left, there's always a feeling of, 'Woah! Can we do that again?' But we're feeling very buoyant about the future. We see people coming, committing to nearly a week in these conditions and having such a brilliant time. We want to run Glastonbury as long as possible. I still feel it's a really positive time for festivals."
