Noel Gallagher has said Glastonbury 2024 got “a bit woke” for his liking.Gallagher, who first performed at Worthy Farm with Oasis in 1994, did clarify that despite his various gripes, the festival was “probably the best fucking thing about Britain apart from the Premier League.”“Don’t get me wrong, I fucking love Glastonbury,” he told The Sun after the festival had concluded.“It’s getting a bit woke now, that place, and a bit kind of preachy and a bit virtue-signalling,” he continued. “I don’t like it in music, little fucking idiots waving flags around and making political statements and bands taking the stage and saying, ‘Hey guys, isn’t war terrible, yeah? Let’s all boo war.

Blur Returning for Coachella Weekend 2, Despite Damon Albarn’s Frustration With Crowd; Kid Cudi Added to Festival Lineup
Blur performed Saturday night on the Coachella main stage ahead of No Doubt, they found themselves in front of a relatively unresponsive crowd, especially during their 1994 hit “Girls & Boys.” “You’re never seeing us again, so you might as well fucking sing it,” a clearly frustrated frontman Damon Albarn said after the crowd’s uninspired response during multiple call and response attempts. Segments of the internet soon erupted with confused reactions — were they about to vacate the stage? Were they splitting up again? Were they so frustrated that they were pulling a Frank Ocean and not returning for weekend two? Or, more likely, was it a not-out-of-character act of spontaneous anger from a 56-year-old rock star who’d played two nights at London’s Wembley Stadium to 90,000 screaming fans last summer — who’d screamed the lyrics to “Girls & Boys” almost louder than Albarn could sing them — and apparently didn’t realize that much of the Coachella audience was half his age and did not grow up on such ’90s Britpop classics as “Popscene,” “Tender,” “Coffee & TV,” “The Universal,” “Country House” and “For Tomorrow” (although they probably knew the “Whoo-hoo!” of the group’s biggest hit, “Song 2”).
