Because of course it is…

Glastonbury Festival is home to all sorts of weird and wonderful installations, not least a fire-breathing metallic spider. Worthy Farm isn’t quite like the seaside though… until now.

As reported by the Bristol Post, Michael Eavis revealed plans for a 60-metre “Victorian pier” at this year’s festival, calling it “Glastonbury on-sea”.

The festival’s founder was speaking at the launch of a show by Joe Rush, an artist whose work, including the Joe Strummer Memorial Tree in 2003, and 2017’s Cinemageddon, has been exhibited at Glastonbury before.

Elsewhere in Glastonbury news, the festival revealed the first portion of their 2019 lineup recently, with The Killers and The Cure set to join Stormzy as headliners.

They’ve also announced the longlist for their Emerging Talent Competition and revealed that they won’t be selling single use plastic bottles on site this year.
