Glastonbury Festival could be moving in 2017.

The festival organiser, Michael Eavis, was giving a talk at the Oxford Union last night when he revealed the news.

Oxford Union tweeted a few of his points including the news that he is looking for a potential site and his reasons for doing this.

He said that the current site, Worthy Farm, might not be suitable anymore due to the size of the whole festival. They currently need to rent the land from 22 farmers in order to facilitate the size of the operation.

He also addressed rumours that Coldplay and Beyoncé would be headlining.
