The Wombats: ‘Jay-Z will deafen Glastonbury doubters’

Glasto-bound band say the rapper will be great at Worthy Farm

The Wombats have said that Glastonbury headliner Jay-Z will prove those who doubt the credibility of his booking wrong.

Speaking to NME.COM, the band, who play the Other Stage at the bash on the same day (June 28), said that they enjoyed Jay-Z’s recent performance at the Norwegian Hove festival, where they were also playing.

“I loved it [Jay-Z‘s performance],” drummer Dan Haggis said. “He just kept dropping samples from hits, you couldn’t help but dance. Especially at a bit of Jackson Five. I really enjoyed it. Any doubters will be swiftly deafened.”

“I think we’re going to go out there and spank it literally as hard as we can,” singer/guitarist Matthew Murphy went on to say, speaking of his band’s own upcoming Glastonbury performance. “We went last year and played the Queen’s Head. It was a lost weekend.”
