Liam Gallagher has reiterated his desire to never play at Glastonbury again.

The Beady Eye man said he is "never going there again" in reference to the Worthy Farm event, before complaining about the sound and celebrity liggers at the festival.

Speaking to the News Of The World, the former Oasis frontman said: "The sound is shit and really quiet".



"And now it's like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I'm not having it."

Liam's brother and former bandmate Noel has also criticised Michael Eavis' festival in recent years. He said that booking Jay-Z as a headliner in 2008 was "wrong".

The Gallaghers last played at Glastonbury in 2004, when Oasis headlined the Pyramid Stage.

Meanwhile, Beady Eye are scheduled to play at a number of other UK festivals this summer, including Somerset House, T In The Park and Reading And Leeds Festival.
