'We could prove them wrong, change their mind'
After last week saw the unlikely duo of Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff throw their names into the ring for Glasto 2017, now the ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ girlband sensation have opened up about their interest to perform at Worthy Farm next summer.
“We would love to do Glastonbury, it would be incredible for us to do that,” singer Jesy Nelson told Metro. “‘I think we’d be able to get a new audience that maybe we don’t have, people who aren’t too sure about Little Mix. We could prove them wrong, change their mind.”
Last week, DJ Jazzy Jeff said of the chances of him and Will Smith appearing: “We had interest in Glastonbury last year, whenever the decision comes down, I’m there,” Jazzy Jeff told Bang Showbiz. “The biggest part of us doing this [reuniting] is the clearing of the schedule. I tour about 180 days out of the year but he makes movies so it’s more on his side of having to clear a schedule for us to be able to rehearse and go on the road.
“Sometimes it gets a little hard with him being one of the biggest movie stars in the world to free up his time. He absolutely positively wants to do this; the funny thing is, he made the announcement before he even told me.”
Earlier this month, betting was suspended on Ed Sheeran headlining Glastonbury 2017. The other rumoured headline act for Glastonbury 2017 is currently Foo Fighters, having announced other huge European festival headline slots that week – joining the previously announced Radiohead.
As well as telling NME that there would be a brand new area at Glastonbury 2017, Eavis also also revealed that the line-up was ‘90% booked’ and that the’d be ‘cramming in two years’ worth of music’ before the festival takes a year off in 2018.
