What is a fallow year?
Every five years Glastonbury takes a year off to allow the farmland to recover from all those boots on the ground.
It also allows villagers in Pilton a much needed break from the 200,000 strong festival-goers that descend on the area.
It is called a fallow year and actually originates from farming, when farmers would give fields time to recover from livestock.
The next fallow year isn’t predicted until 2027.
