John Lydon: ‘Isle of Wight Festival is absurd’

Sex Pistols lead singer, John Lydon, has criticised the Isle Of Wight Festival during a tirade about the music industry.

In an interview with the Daily Record the fontman labelled the event, which was voted the Best Major Festival at the UK Festival Awards last year, as 'orchestrated and absurd', despite it being organised by the Sex Pistols booking agent John Giddings.

Speaking about the festival, which the reformed punk group headlined back in June, Lydon said: "It is orchestrated deckchair seating and gay rainbow flag waving. It's very, very absurd."

Sex Pistols are due to headline Live At Loch Lomond this Sunday (3 August).
