Glastonbury Festival will be "invading" Worthy Farm until at least 2024.

The festival has been granted a new 10-year license, which not only guarantees its location, but also allows for more staff on the site. Mendip District Council said the decision was made without the need for it to be "subjected to scrutiny in a public hearing," the BBC News reports: "We recognise how important it is to get this world-famous event right, and the huge impact that it has on the local area and community, both positive and negative," explains Jeannette Marsh, chair of Mendip District Council's licensing board. Glastonbury Festival director Robert Richards, on his turn, sees the agreement as "an example of the same team spirit that makes the festival the success it is."

This also means that the number of passes for performers and staff could rise by 25,000 to 63,000 by 2024 - however, the number of tickets should remain the same (135,000), say the organisers.

Although this year's line-up has yet to be fully unveiled, Arcade Fire, Blondie, Warpaint, Disclosure, Lily Allen and Dolly Parton are some of the artists already confirmed to appear. Glastonbury 2014 takes place between June 25th and 29th.
