Adele to Headline 2016 Glastonbury Festival

“We are going to do a show somewhere else with the same team behind Glastonbury,” Eavis explained, adding that the second event would launch “in 2019 or 2018, but probably 2019.” “It hasn’t got a name yet,” she continued, “and we’re still not entirely sure what shape it’s going to take. For now we’re all [focused] on Worthy Farm. We’re not thinking too far down that road because we’re quite busy with this one at the moment!”
