Glasto: don’t blame Jay-Z

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

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.
