Glastonbury may follow Reading’s flag ban

Glastonbury organisers are thinking about following the lead of Reading and Leeds Festivals and banning flags from the site.

Melvin Benn, who helps to organise Glastonbury with Michael Eavis, said he was in talks with the boss about stopping people from taking them to the event.

Benn, who labelled flags a ‘nightmare’, complained how they restrict festival-goers view at festivals. "You couldn't see the acts," he said.

"The flags were everywhere. There have always been flags but not to the level that there has been. And the flags have become very long and tall," Benn added.
