10 more years granted for Glastonbury Festival

glastonbury festivalThe world famous Glastonbury Festival has been granted a new 10-year licence to allow it to continue to be held.

Mendip District Council said the decision was made without the need for a public hearing – only the second time this has happened.

Previously, licences for the festival have been subject to public scrutiny because of objections from the public about noise management and from police, fire or ambulance services concerned about safety.

There was, however, no opposition to the new application, submitted by Glastonbury’s director, Robert Richards, which will see the festival run until 2024.

The application outlined a need for more staff, security guards, litter pickers, stewards and volunteers to help keep people safe at the event.
