Glasto: The ten-year plan

Taking advantage of a change in the law, Glastonbury Festival is hoping to avoid the annual heart-in-the-mouth licensing round by applying for a ten years licence for the event. If it gets the go-ahead, the guarantee of festivals up until 2017 means even Kasabian might in with a shout of getting a headline slot.

The bad news, though (besides the thought of Kasabian headlining anything) is that Mendip District Council will be deciding on the application on March 26th, just a handful of days before tickets are due to go on sale.

But enjoy this, possibly the last chance to savour the "will they allow Glasto to go ahead" cliffhanger.
