Glastonbury chief responds to Oasis’ criticism

Michael Eavis calls Noel Gallagher's festival views 'weird'

Glastonbury chief Michael Eavis has hit back at Noel Gallagher‘s criticism of this year’s line-up.

The Oasis guitarist objected to the decision to have Jay-Z headline the event, declaring that there was “no place for hip-hop music” at Glastonbury.

Eavis responded to Gallagher‘s remarks, describing them as “weird” and “disappointing”.

He told The Sun: “Why did he need to get involved? It was a bit weird, to be honest. He should give someone else a chance. He needn’t have said that and I was disappointed he did.

“He said it’s a place for guitar bands – but there are loads of guitar bands playing.”
