Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis has suggested 2020 could be his last year organising the festival, although he did say the event's "still got a few years in it".

Speaking to the Guardian, Eavis said he could probably keep going for six more years but was unsure about what would happen after. "I think I can run on another six years, which would take me up to 50 years, then [I'll] see what happens after that.

"Every single person there last night [Saturday] wanted to shake my hand and say it's the best thing in their life. It really is quite phenomenal that appreciation of the event – 44 years and people love it more than ever."

He also stated that Glastonbury's next year off would be 2017 while revealing that next year's three headliners are already confirmed.
