After the seventies, the festival was held almost annually and grew in size. Michael Eavis hosted the first-ever festival, then known as Pilton Festival after he saw Led Zeppelin concert that took place on an open air at the Bath Festival of Blues & Progressive Music in 1970.
From 1970 to 1981, Glastonbury Festival was held at irregular intervals. Since then, the festival has been held annually, except for "fallow years", which are usually taken at five-year intervals, meant to give the organisers, local population and the land a break. This year (2018) is also a fallow year; the next Glastonbury Festival will take place from 26-30 June 2019.
Since 1981, Michael Eavis, who is a site owner and local farmer, has been organising the festival (through his company called Glastonbury Festivals Ltd). He ran the festival together with his spouse Jean until she died in 1999. Eavis now co-organises the festival with Emily Eavis, his daughter.
Since 2002, the Festival Republic, which is a company that consists both MCD and Live Nation, has taken on the role of managing the security and logistics of the event through a 40 percent stake in the event management company.
Every year, a company, which is jointly owned by the Festival Republic and Glastonbury Festivals Ltd, is formed to run the festival. The profits go to the parent companies.
