Jake Bugg has said he "hates" music festivals.

In this week's NME, which is on newsstands now or available digitally, Bugg speaks about his disdain for large live music events.

"I hate music festivals so much, but obviously to be this high up on the line-up and to be playing here tonight, is a privilege," he told NME backstage at Glastonbury, where he headlined the Other Stage. "But the actual experience of festivals I could really do without."

"This is my third Glastonbury," he added. "I remember going out onto the Pyramid Stage last year and seeing so many blurred faces. It was much bigger than I thought it was going to be, I couldn't really believe it to be honest. It was a bit too early for me to care - it was 3pm and it was a bit too early for a show for me. Whereas tonight I'm on pretty late - it's a big slot for me."

Unfortunately for Bugg, he has a summer of festival appearances ahead of him - starting with a slot at the British Summer Time event in London's Hyde Park tonight (July 3). He will also perform at Reading & Leeds Festival in August before headliners, Arctic Monkeys.
