Watch Kurt Vile talk about his plans to combat the Glastonbury mud

He'll summon what he calls his post-gig "superhuman strength" to tackle Worthy Farm's biggest challenge

Kurt Vile has told NME that he plans to take on the Glastonbury mud by using “superhuman powers.”

Speaking prior to his 17:00pm slot on The Park Stage, Vile took time out to chat to NME about his first impressions of Glastonbury.

“It’s awesome: I’ve never been here before, but I know it’s one of the biggest ones,” he said. Although he said he had to leave the site later this evening, the guitarist said he hoped to see Australia’s Jagwar Ma and Tame Impala before his short stay at Worthy Farm came to an end.

Asked about how he was managing with the excess mud that has graced this year’s Glastonbury, Vile was positively upbeat.

“I’m trying to get in as much mud as I can [before he leaves],” he said. “After I play a gig, I’m like a different person: I have superhuman strength. I don’t know where the other stages are, but I’ll be running through the mud to get to them.”
