Glastonbury Festival held its annual Emerging Talent Competition last night - won by Josh Barry, with Flohio and Young Yizzy as runners up (all great acts) - and eFestival managed to catch a few words with Emily Eavis.
With her still enjoying the positivity with which this year's line-up has been received (there's more announcements coming this week), Emily said that while nothing had been arranged bands-wise for the next festival after this year's, in 2019, that big acts were dead keen to play at the 50th anniversary in 2020 and that two headliners are already lined up.
Unsurprisingly she didn't give away who those acts are, but she did make a point of mentioning one act who isn't one of those two acts lined up - Pink Floyd.
Going to Glastonbury this year? Don't forget the ‘Love the Farm, Leave no Trace’ pledge:-
- I will use the toilets provided and not pee on the land
- I will use the recycling bins provided and not throw my rubbish on the ground
- I will take all my belongings home with me again, including my tent and all camping equipment
- I will bag up my rubbish in the bin bags provided by the campsite stewards and use the recycling pens provided in each campsite.
Please commit to this pledge and encourage others to stick to it too, to help ensure a sustainable Festival.
For the fullest list of rumours of who might be playing as well as the list of around 100 acts confirmed so far see the Glastonbury Festival line-up page.
