BBC announces The Biggest Weekend festival to be held in Glastonbury’s stead in 2018
BBC has announced that it will be holding a new festival series in 2018 called The Biggest Weekend that will take place in four sites across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The BBC festival is said to be similar to Glastonbury Festival, which will not be held in 2018. Glastonbury Festival takes place on a working dairy farm that has a “fallow year” every six years in order to renovate and repair the farmland, so that the site can be festival ready for the subsequent six years.
