The father and daughter behind the world-famous Glastonbury festival have had "many discussions" about relocating the most popular music event in the UK.

But while founder Michael Eavis is keen for "one last risk", his daughter and co-organiser Emily is more reluctant to see the event change.

From Wednesday 135,000 ticket holders will pour through the gates of the West Country farm and set up camp ready to see headliners Kanye West, The Who and Florence And The Machine.

Emily Eavis said her father wants to take "one last risk".

She said: "Michael would quite like the idea of doing it somewhere else. But then Worthy Farm is the home of it and I love it here."
