Emily Eavis

Co-organiser Glastonbury Festival

Emily Eavis is the youngest daughter of Michael Eavis, the founder of the Glastonbury Festival. Beginning her working life as a teacher, Eavis returned home when her mother became ill with cancer to look after her and to help run the festival. In the increasingly commercial landscape of the music industry, where endorsements and sponsorship are forming a larger part of the pie chart, the Glastonbury Festival manages to maintain a distance and remains a rite of passage for so many artists who organise their plans around this music festival. Now at the helm of this event, Eavis is responsible for curating and programming the line-up of the festival which remains at the heart of the creative music community both here and around the world.
