Jake Bugg has said that he is "gutted" to be playing at the same time as Metallica at Glastonbury.

The Nottingham-born singer will headline the Other Stage tonight (June 28) and so will be onstage at the same time as Metallica when they top the Pyramid Stage bill.

Speaking to NME prior to his set, Bugg said: "Yeah, absolutely. I'm a bit gutted. I'm a big Metallica fan so I'm absolutely gutted that I'm on at the same time. I'd love to see them."

Speaking about the debate on whether Metallica are the right band for Glastonbury, Bugg added: "I'm not going to say names, but there's people higher up on these bills that I think shouldn't be whereas Metallica are a band that have been doing it for absolute years. They've got great tunes, why not. I know the other argument is that you have festivals like Download where they headline, but I'm a fan, so for me I think it's great."

Other artists to pass comment on this year's Saturday night headliners at the Worthy Farm festival include Arctic Monkeys, Mick Jagger, Kasabian and Johnny Marr.
