Glasto: don’t blame Jay-Z
The nonsense over why there are still tickets on sale for this summer’s Glastonbury festival continues.
Oasis’s Noel Gallagher entered the fray this week, telling BBC’s show that it’s all Jay-Z’s fault. “Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music, do you know what I mean?” claimed Gallagher. I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It’s wrong.”
Leaving aside the fact that Gallagher thankfully doesn’t book the festival, Glastonbury’s sales slump is due more to the audience’s bad experiences with the weather in previous years than to some collective decision by the British middle classes to “diss” Jigga.
