The new events company was registered by Eavis and her husband Nick Dewey.

Glastonbury co-organisers Emily Eavis and Nick Dewey have registered a new private limited company at Companies House. It was incorporated on 8 February and its nature of business is listed as performing arts. The registered office address listed for Holy Cow Events is Worthy Farm.

The Companies House registration was picked up by a user of the festival-focused forum, who shared a link to the Companies House page and wrote: “Might mean nothing, might mean something but a new company has been registered last week to Emily and Nick on Companies House…”

Another forum user remarked that “Emily & Nick have been dabbling with Holy Cow thing for a while now” and shared a link to a story from the mid-00s. It seems Eavis launched a gig night called Holy Cow back in 2007 as a way to give new bands the chance to earn a slot at Glastonbury.

At the time, Emily told the BBC, As a festival, we would really like to lead the way in new music.”

“We’re really after unsigned acts and finding the best new acts from all corners of the country and beyond,” she said. “The aim is to collect as many new bands as possible throughout the year and build up a strong roster of new acts.”

“We’ve had some brilliant debut sets throughout the years, where bands start at Glastonbury on a very small stage and end up playing the Pyramid in a few years.”

Eavis and Dewey are yet to make an announcement on the new events company or reveal its purpose. It’s unknown whether or not Holy Cow Events is linked or related to Glastonbury Festival, which is its own company and has the pair listed as directors alongside Emily’s father and festival founder Michael Eavis.

Last month, Michael Eavis told LBC he was considering holding a smaller event in September around the anniversary date of “when we started, which was the 18 September 1970.” His comments followed the news of Glastonbury 2021’s cancellation.
