The EDM producer headlined the Other Stage on Saturday night (June 27)
Deadmau5 headlined Glastonbury Festival’s Other Stage on Saturday night (June 27), stopping mid-performance to sit down and drink a beer.
Billed at the same time as Kanye West, the EDM producer attracted a considerable crowd at the 50,000 capacity stage.
During his performance of ‘Seeya’, the electronic musician seemed to troll his own audience by pressing play to a backing track and sitting on a sofa in the middle of the stage and proceeding to drink a beer with a backing dancer dressed up as Left Shark from Katy Perry’s Superbowl performance.

Meanwhile, Deadmau5 recently settled a legal dispute with Disney over alleged trademark infringement in relation to the mouse-themed headwear that the artist wears onstage.
The Canadian EDM star – real name Joel Zimmerman – had previously attempted to register his signature garment with the US patent and trademark office for use on merchandise.
However, the Walt Disney Corporation officially opposed the request in September 2014, arguing that the design was too similar to that of their well-known character Mickey Mouse, whose silhouette is used in the company’s logo.
Disney stated that the merchandise would “cause confusion”, claiming the design to be “nearly identical in appearance, connotation and overall commercial impression to Disney’s mouse ears.”
Now, Zimmerman’s lawyer has told the Hollywood Reporter that “Disney and Deadmau5 have amicably resolved their dispute”. No other details have been disclosed.
