The 73-year old farmer has admitted that the festival suffered a few organisational problems last year, mainly due to the bad weather, but he's vowed to improve things this time around.

Speaking to The Times, Eavis said: "I thought the criticisms were valid last year [but] I can't turn back time, but what I can do is address the problem this year.

"There's extra camping space. We've ordered in lorryloads of concrete sleepers which will effectively double the seating."


Some festival-goers had also complained that they weren't able to leave the site as bus drivers were turning them away for being too muddy.

Responding to the claims Eavis said: "We're working with different people this time and that simply won't happen again."

Glastonbury Festival
is set to take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from 27-29 June with Kings Of Leon, Jay-Z and The Verve headlining.

The remaining tickets are to be sold through seven HMV stores. For more details click HERE.
