It’s obviously the only set anyone really wants to see at Glastonbury this weekend: Rastamouse in the Kidz Field.
Yes, the loveable rodent/appalling racial stereotype will no doubt be one of the talking points of the weekend. But it’s the little guy’s first Glastonbury, so he’ll no doubt be feeling nervous. We asked a few bands to dole out festival survival tips.
Brother’s advice? “Hide your drugs!”
We actually did an interview with “Rastamouse” ahead of the festival kicking off. It’s not very funny, to be honest, but here it is anyway.
What are your thoughts on U2 headlining?
Mi tink dat when dem guys are playin’, it gonna be a ‘Beautiful Day’, fi sure.

Fi real mi would love dat . . . mi tinkin’ a Police an’ Teefs remix would be sweet.
Liam Gallagher said he’d never come to Glasto again. He said: “It’s like Bond Street with mud.” Thoughts on that?
