Fatboy Slim has made a bold claim about Glastonbury, saying the festival has “run out” of “big headline acts”.

The DJ plays at the Worthy Farm event every year, but it seems that he isn’t always impressed by the headliners booked.

This year’s event will see Ed Sheeran headline for the first time, alongside Radiohead - who have topped the bill twice before - and Foo Fighters, who were forced to pull out of the 2015 event at the last minute, when frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg.

The legends’ slot, which has previously seen stars including Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie perform, will be occupied by Barry Gibb.

Tickets for the event have already sold out, with the last remaining ones being snapped up by eager fans during last month’s resale.
