Glastonbury gap year to be filled by new BBC Music festival


With Glastonbury taking a year off in 2018, there's already one new festival hoping to fill the mud-and-music gap.

The BBC has announced plans to host The Biggest Weekend while Glasto has its traditional fallow year.

The four-day festival will take place in May across four sites in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The last time Glastonbury had a year off, in 2012, BBC Radio 1 brought its Big Weekend festival to Hackney.

It coincided with the London Olympics, which took place in the capital a few weeks after the festival.
