An intimate and slightly melancholic Noel Gallagher, but never sad

Noel Gallagher: ‘Glastonbury is too politically correct’

Noel Gallagher he has raised his arrows against what is increasingly happening at festivals, and in particular what he has seen on the stage of Glastonbury where bands and artists go to use the stage granted to them to play, to also set themselves up as preachers and propagandists of politically correct causes.

Noel, who is a regular at the major British event, spoke on Matt Morgan’s podcast after returning home from the festival: “Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Glastonbury.

I think it’s one of the most important things. In fact it’s probably the greatest thing about Britain, apart from the Premier League. The place is getting a bit too politically correct now, a bit too preachy, a bit too moralising. I don’t like that in music, little fucking idiots waving flags and making political statements and bands going on stage and saying, ‘Hey guys, war is terrible. Let’s boo the war. Fuck the Tories and all that. Play your fucking music and get out of my way!’

Noel Gallagher He also said that the public who listen to bands’ political messages are in no position to do anything about the world’s problems. “It’s too much. Give all your money to the cause, stop moaning. Let’s just say the world is a bit of a shitty place and you’re all in a field at Glastonbury. What’s the problem? I don’t have a problem with that. I suppose if you’re 18 and middle class you might have a problem with that. But what are all the kids in the field at Glastonbury going to do? Everyone knows what’s going on in the fucking world, you’ve got a phone in your pocket telling you. What’s the point of these virtuous appeals?”
