One of the venues in the late night South East naughty corner will not be appearing at this summer's Glastonbury Festival.
The Snakepit, which has brought flaming exotic dancers, and cabaret alongside bands and DJs to the Shangri-La fields at Glastonbury since 2009, announced the news on their Facebook page (here), saying,
"The Snakepit takes a break this year from Glasto whilst it regenerates from its annual hibernation. The Crew and our favourite DJs and acts will be forming a new venue hopefully to hold the snake pit place in your hearts so look out for them and keep the faith. Keep the love and let Glastonbury Festival and Shangri-La know how much you will miss us and why, so we don't lose our spot next year. The last few years have been a blast. The Snake pit audiences are unique and rather splendid. We salute you!"
The veue which operates a strict no tatto to entry policy, has hosted acts including Slamboree, Asakusa Jinta, Dutty Moonshine, The Destroyers, The Correspondents, The Lazy Habits, Roxy Velvet, Kitty Bang Bang, the Monsters of Schlock, the Two Wrongies, Fake Bush, Frank Sanazi, Strictly Dumb Prancing, Cirquotic Rock, Flame Fatale, Wau Wau Sisters, Liquer Flambe, The Bees Knees, Eclectic Dance and more.
This year's sold out Glastonbury Festival runs for five full days from Wednesday 24th until Sunday 28th June 2015 across over a 1,000 acres of beautiful countryside at Worthy Farm, Pilton in Somerset.
As ever, entry includes a free programme. Once again, the Festival will be raising more than £2 million in funds for Oxfam, Wateraid, Greenpeace and and hundreds of other worthy causes, both local and international.
The only acts confirmed are Friday headliner Foo Fighters, plus Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett, and Lionel Richie in the teatime legends slot.
The line-up will not be announced until next month. Expect something like 2,000 performances at over 100 venues including music, cabaret, theatre, circus, a fantastic Kidz area, poetry, green crafts and information, site art, decor, and loads, loads more ... much more than just the music, so make sure you check it all out!
As usual eFestivals will bring you the very best-sourced rumours, allowing festival-goers to see who is playing long before the bands are formally announced - keep your eyes on the Glastonbury 2015 rumours, updated as we receive information.
