Glastonbury’s Michael and Emily Eavis accepted the award for Best Festival for the 5th year running!
Glastonbury Festival has been crowned the Best Festival supported by ID&C at the VO5 NME Awards 2018 for the fifth year consecutively.
Last year, Worthy Farm’s legendary Pyramid Stage saw performances from Radiohead, Foo Fighters, and Ed Sheeran. The likes of Liam Gallagher, Stormzy, The xx, Lorde, Alt-J, Boy Better Know, Phoenix, Kano, Dizzee Rascal, Halsey, and Solange also played across the weekend, with The Killers making a surprise appearance on the festival’s final day.
Festival organisers Michael and Emily Eavis accepted the award from Rudimental, with Emily Eavis saying: “Thanks so much, we really, really appreciate it. We’ve had a year off this year, so see you in a couple of years.”

This year is set to be a fallow year for the festival, which means there is no Glasto in 2018 in order to allow the grounds and wildlife of Worthy Farm to recover.
Glastonbury Festival will return on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, and run till Sunday, June 30.
There have yet to be any headline confirmations for Glastonbury Festival 2019 as of this moment. That being said, as every year, the Glasto Rumour Mill starts spinning almost instantaneously.
