Glastonbury to offer metal cups made in Sheffield

Glastonbury organisers have announced that steel cups produced in Sheffield will be available to revellers at the 2016 festival.

The one pint cups are said to be a trial and their aim is to help reduce the amount of waste generated over the music weekend.

Ticket holders will be able to pay a £5 deposit for a cup which they can then either return, donate or keep at the end of the festival.

Glastonbury Festival 2016 chief Michael Eavis said the cups will also help support the British steel industry.

“Week after week, there’s a story in the national press about jobs in the UK steel industry being put at risk.

“There’s seemingly no end to the negative slide of this critical industry, and if the jobs, skills and infrastructure are lost they won’t be replaced.

“We’ve worked on this project over the last three years, which will hopefully encourage other UK businesses to think about how they can support our steel industry during these very challenging times.”

Glastonbury to change venue for 2018?

Rumours of Glastonbury relocating for the 2018 year have emerged this week.

The festival takes a break every five years to help the land recover for the livestock at Worthy Farm, however Eavis has hinted that the next break year could instead be replaced with a change in venue.

Eavis said the festival would be the ‘same size as normal’ with the nearby Longleat Safari Park topping the list of possible locations.

Its thought that the move could be a trial for a permanent relocation following fears about a gas pipe that runs underneath the grounds of worthy farm.

“If everyone dances on it at the same time, it could break the pipe in theory. It’s becoming very, very tricky to have it here,” Eavis said.

Glastonbury Festival 2016 takes place at Worthy Farm with a host of acts already officially confirmed including Coldplay, Underworld and more.

Ronnie Wood joins Kanye West debate

TL;DR – Ronnie Wood says Kayne is the wrong choice for Glastonbury.

Legendary Rock ‘n’ Roll guitarist Ronnie Wood has joined the debate surrounding Kayne West’s controversial Glastonbury booking.

The Rolling Stones member said that the decision to get West as a headliner is “bloody ridiculous”.

“It pisses me off so I try not to think about it too much,” said Wood.

“Glastonbury is the home of rock music and, look, Kanye isn’t rock. He’s a great entertainer and he knows how to captivate an audience with all his swearing, but when it comes to what that festival is about, it’s the wrong choice.

“Good luck to the man – I don’t know if he’ll survive when he’s on that stage. People who go there for rock music are starting to get very angry about all these rappers and R’n’B singers taking over.”

West will headline the famous Pyramid Stage on Saturday at the 2015 festival.
