Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis has said he hopes to stage a new music festival in Longleat, near Bath, in 2019.
The year will be a “fallow year” for Glastonbury to allow the Worthy Farm site to recover, and a spokesperson confirmed to the BBC that plans for a new event were in their early stages.
Eavis (pictured) had previously told the broadcaster: "We're talking to Longleat every day, that's the best site...that's my favourite site, really."
The Longleat estate is around 30 miles from Worthy Farm. Last month, co-organiser Emily Eavis said: "It's going to be the whole team behind the Glastonbury Festival but it's not going to be called Glastonbury.
"The main thing to set straight is that Glastonbury Festival itself will always be at Worthy Farm."
Glastonbury was originally set to take a year off in 2017, but these plans have been postponed. Muse, Coldplay and Adele headline this year’s event from June 22-26.
