Noel Gallagher on playing T In The Park alongside Avicii: ‘I don’t wish to know anything about him’

Ex-Oasis man criticises the EDM producer as sounding "like a fucking artist from the Renaissance period".

Noel Gallagher has spoken about EDM producer and fellow T In The Park headliner Avicii in an interview with NME.

T In The Park takes place at Strathallan Castle, Perthshire in Scotland this weekend (July 10-12), with Gallagher and his High Flying Birds headlining on Sunday and Avicii on Saturday. Friday’s bill will be topped by Kasabian.

Quizzed on the other acts rubbing shoulders on the festival bill, Gallagher told NME: “I don’t know anything about Avicii. I don’t wish to know anything about Avicii. It sounds like an artist from the Renaissance period.”


He continued: “I don’t know, is it like that David Guetta nonsense?”

On hearing that the EDM producer will perform the day prior to Gallagher, the former Oasis man replied: “Don’t worry, I can save [the festival] after that.”

Among the other acts scheduled to perform at T In The Park this weekend are The Libertines, Stereophonics, Sam Smith, The Prodigy and Alt-J.


Noel Gallagher has previously said of the current state of electronic music: “Dance music sounds like a walk in the park now. Any fucker can do it – and quite frankly, every fucker is doing it.”

Sharing his advice for playing festivals, Gallagher recently told NME: “Just get up there and give it 75 per cent!”
