Glastonbury 2004 License Submitted
United Kingdom | |
14 October 2003
Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis has submitted the application for next year's festival, scheduled to take place on June
25, 26 and 27 2004.
The application for a public entertainments license, which has just been lodged, will be considered by Mendip District
Regulatory Board before the end of the year.
If granted a license, the festival will take place, as usual, over the last weekend in June, with gates open from Wednesday
23 June. The first stage in the application process will be a public meeting at the MDC office in Shepton Mallet.
Glastonbury has had to fight to secure its license in recent years, in light of overcrowding caused by fencejumpers, and crime
reports. However, a high profile campaign to improve security (incorporating the new perimeter 'superfence') have been extremely
successful over the last two festivals, resulting in far fewer reported crimes and injuries.
This year may also see the introduction of an identity-tagged 'anti-tout' ticket system, following the rapid sell-out of this
year's event, although nothing has yet been confirmed.
