Babyshambles confirmed for Glastonbury

Pete Doherty signs up for just £100

Babyshambles are the latest band to be confirmed for this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Organiser Michael Eavis confirmed that his daughter – and fellow organiser – Emily had booked Pete Doherty’s band for a surprisingly cheap fee.

“I don’t know if we’re allowed to say this, but Emily has just done deal we’re really proud of for Pete Doherty and Babyshambles, for £100!” Michael told NME.COM. “I must say I’ve never got a band for £100! I can’t believe it, she’s doing very well, isn’t she? Absolute classic!”

Emily later cleared up the deal’s details, explaining that while Babyshambles will be receiving a usual fee, the £100 is to get Doherty to do an extra acoustic performance.

As previously reported, the festival is being headlined by Arctic Monkeys, The Killers and The Who and takes place between June 22 and 24.
