Glastonbury 'has swine flu fears'
Organisers of the Glastonbury festival hope swine flu will not cause the event to be called off.
Glastonbury worried about swine flu? Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis is afraid that the festival could be cancelled because of the swine flu outbreak, it has been claimed.

According to the Sun, Eavis is concerned that the government will force the event to be called off amid fears that the disease could break out into a pandemic, after 28 cases were confirmed in the UK.

A mole told the newspaper: "So many people gathered in one place is a risk and if the government wanted to pull public events, like they have done in Mexico, we'd be one of the first to go."

The mole also suggested that the festival is establishing a contingency plan in case the swine flu outbreak gets worse, but said that the event is currently intending to go ahead as planned.

An official spokesman for the festival also told the newspaper that organisers are monitoring all developments which break in the swine flu situation.

Bands which have been confirmed for Glastonbury 2009 include Blur, Fleet Foxes, Echo and the Bunnymen, White Lies, Florence and the Machine, Kasabian and Bruce Springsteen.
