London, May 3 (IANS) Michael Eavis, head of the Glastonbury festival, Britain’s best known music festival, has slammed Oasis singer Noel Gallagher for criticising this year’s line up. reports that Gallagher had said that booking rapper Jay-Z to open the festival was a mistake.

Eavis, a dairy farmer, responded to the criticism by saying: “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.”
