According to the Oxford Union, Michael Eavis has revealed the "site might not be suitable any more".
Michael Eavis has reportedly suggested Glastonbury's future at Worthy Farm is in jeopardy, and that the festival could move as soon as next year.
According to Oxford Union, the festival founder revealed during a speech at Oxford University that the huge music event could be relocating in 2017 because its "so big" and "the site might not be suitable any more".

According to Oxford Union, the Octogenarian added: "We don't own all the land - I could have bought the land for Glastonbury but I don't think that is the right thing to do."

The news comes after Eavis teased the festival could be due to take place and re-locate during its scheduled break or fallow year.
Speaking to the Central Somerset Gazette, he said: "I have never really considered retiring because I would miss the festival too much.
"That is why I don't really want to have a year without a festival. At my age I want to enjoy as many festivals as I possibly can.
"I am getting too old and I don't want to miss out on any festivals."
While it might anger Glasto veterans who think they know the site like the back of their hand, will it ACTUALLY make any difference where it is?
Would it be Glastonbury if it's not a Worthy Farm?
