Noel Gallagher: "It's Disturbing That A Dude With Fake DJ Decks Is The Future"

The former Oasis man was talking to XFM at this year's T In The Park Festival when he made the comment on current headliners.

Noel Gallagher has told XFM that he finds large-scale EDM artists "disturbing." Before performing at this year's T In The Park Festival, Noel was speaking about the current state of headliners.

"It's quite telling…that still at festivals the biggest draw are bands who have been around for ten years" he said. "Kasabian are the newest of that lot. They've been around ten years."

"Radiohead, Coldplay, Prodigy, Chemical Brothers. They've all been going fifteen years. So once that generation of nineties bands eventually decides they've made enough money and will retire, then what are we left with?"

I find it quite disturbing" he went on,  "for the future of festivals (and youth culture, in a way) if a dude in a hat and a pair of fake DJ decks pressing play on a CD player is what it's all about. That's quite a bleak future."

As well as Noel Gallagher, Kasabian and The Libertines, the likes of David Guetta and Avicii also headlined the festival.
