Glastonbury launches new campsite for 2020 festival to reduce leftover waste

The tickets will go on sale tomorrow

Glastonbury will introduce a new campsite in 2020.

After the greenest Glastonbury on record in 2019, when 99.3% of all tents taken to Worthy Farm were removed from the site by campers, the festival have introduced The Sticklinch campsite for 2020's edition.

The new campsite will take over the former West Campervan Fields area, with the usual Podpad, yurts, scout-style tents and bell tents all available for campers, with the campsite “a more gently undulating walk to the festival site, ideal for those who find the climb to Worthy View challenging.” The aim of the new campsite is to try and further reduce the waste left on site by attendees of the festival.

The 2020 edition of Glastonbury sold out in 34 minutes this year, and Diana Ross has been confirmed for the legends slot.

The festival was recently given permission to increase its capacity by 10,00 people. 2020's edition of the festival marks its 50th year, which Glastonbury is celebrating with a book.
