THIS years Glastonbury acts were chosen entirely at random by organiser Michael Eavis cat, it has emerged.
The extremely diverse line-up was achieved by allowing the cat, Ozric, to select acts from a list that was read out to him.
Eavis said: Too many festivals go down the predictable route of booking popular acts that people want to listen to.
Instead I made a list of every act I could think of and read them out to my cat. If he responded in any way, like licking his paw or cleaning his anus, they went on the bill.
“And thats why Mumford & Sons are headlining on Sunday.”
He added: “The final line-up was quite eclectic, but I dont think thats a problem. Im sure lots of Dizzee Rascal fans also like Kenny Rogers and I Am Kloot.
“And Ozric did pick out some classic acts like The Rolling Stones, although personally I wouldnt have booked them because I know a Stones tribute band that would have been just as good for £75.
“Its just a shame he ignored U2, Madonna, Pink Floyd, Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, Eminem, The Foo Fighters, Eric Clapton, Beyonce and Bob Dylan, because that would have been quite a festival to remember.”
Festivalgoer Tom Logan said: “The line-up is amazing. Its like a mix of the old and the new and bands you vaguely remember from the 1990s. I just hope Nick Cave doesnt clash with Smashing Pumpkins.”
His girlfriend Donna Sheridan added: “To be honest Im only here to see Bobby Womack.”
