After 18 years in one of the world’s most famous music festival, the Beat Hotel bids goodbye to Glastonbury. The vintage-inspired glamping destination has been a prominent fixture in the annual event. It’s where performers and fans get to take the load off as some of the finest DJs in the festival blurt out their amazing sets. But after this year’s edition, the famous hotel is saying adieu to Worthy Farm.
As for their swan song, the Beat Hotel just released their final line-up. They locked DJs Bicep, Auntie Flow, George Fitzgerald, Jon Hopkins, and more for this year’s festival. The hotel is also hosting a flurry of back-to-back sets, from Fort Romeau and Eclair Fifi to Daniel Avery and HAAi. It’s set to go on all festival long, from it’s starting day on Wednesday up until its very last minute on Sunday. In fact, they also plan to host a grand closing finale party on the final day of the festival—an event no one should miss out!

The reason for this final farewell is that the Beat Hotel is moving to Marrakech to host their own festival. The first ‘Beat Hotel Marrakech’ happened just last March 28 – 31, 2019. They featured the likes of Gerd Janson, Palms Trax, and Peach in their DJ line-up. Also included were various local Moroccan acts such as Casa Voyager, Polyswitch, and Jessin, among others. UK-based independent publishing Faber & Faber also hosted a literary event in the festival, which had famous scribes such as “Trainspotting” and “The Acid House.” They’re looking to make this an annual affair, similarly to Glastonbury.
Glastonbury Festival 2019 will start on June 26, 2019, up until June 30, 2019. Major stars like Kylie Minogue, Janet Jackson, and Miley Cyrus will headline the Pyramid stage. It’s just a few steps away from the Beat Hotel.
