The dates for the 2019 Glastonbury Festival have been confirmed

Glastonbury Festival has been confirmed to be returning in 2019 after taking a break next year to allow the farm land time to recover from the annual influx of music fans.

The iconic festival - which takes place at Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England - will be back after a fallow year, which the music extravaganza takes to help with the upkeep of the site.

The event's official website has been updated to confirm the news that it will take a break in 2018, while fans will be excited to know it will be back the following year from June 26 to June 30.

This year's festival was a hit with punters as Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran all headlined the iconic Pyramid Stage.

The announcement comes after co-organiser Emily Eavis admitted that even though there's no event to organise for next year she and her dad, founder Michael Eavis, will still have a busy 12 months ahead.

She recently said: "Well the years off are normally quite busy actually... We spend a lot of time looking at everything and doing bigger, long-term projects. Looking at tickets and passes and things like that.

"There will be a lot of work to be done, but it's sad to think about it at the moment, because it's been such an amazing festival. I can't really remember one quite like this."

The disappointment in taking a year out has been echoed by Michael, who admitted over the summer that he was "already regretting" the decision.
