Glastonbury will change its name in 2019 when it temporarily moves to a new location, festival organiser Michael Eavis has confirmed.
He revealed the festival's new name during an interview with Paul Cannon of Glastonbury FM, saying, "The Variety Bazaar. It's a good name, don't you think?"
Eavis also went on to add, "But presented by The Glastonbury Festival Team; The Glastonbury Festival Team presents... the Variety Bazaar."
He also said the move, which has been organised to protect the festival's Worthy Farm site from erosion, was a "huge risk," before adding, "I've been a huge risk taker all my life - I mean, 47 years of huge risks really and so far, touch wood, I haven't come unstuck. This might be one risk too far, I don't know."
Emily Eavis also confirmed news of the move and name change in a tweet shortly after the interview — you can read that below.
The festival's 2017 dates have already been locked for 21st to 25th June, with Radiohead confirmed for this year's event.
