Fatboy Slim: Glastonbury Festival becoming “more middle class”

Legendary DJ, Fatboy Slim says that Glastonbury Festival is becoming “more middle class,” and “less dangerous” as time goes on.

Speaking to NME, The DJ, who has had number one hits with three different acts, said, “It’s better organised every year and less chaotic, it’s more middle class, it’s less dangerous.

“It used to be quite a hairy place to be at times.”

Cook also expressed his concern for the lack of quality headline acts around:

“I think sometimes, the big headline acts – they’ve kind of run out.

“They’ve run out of people who would really impress you as a headliner, so poor old people like Muse and Coldplay keep coming back and people are like, ‘oh Christ, Coldplay and Muse again!'”

This year Glastonbury Festival will be headlined by Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran with many more acts also confirmed on the bill.
