Glastonbury Organizer Michael Eavis Says Prince Stopped Negotiations Due To Internet Rumors
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.24.2014

In an interview with The Guardian, Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis spoke about Prince's negotiations to perform at the event, which broke down thanks to reports on the Internet. Here are highlights:

On Prince's negotiations: "We wanted him to play, and it got to the point where his people were talking to us about him doing it, but before he confirmed he got really upset because he thought we had advertised that he was playing. We hadn't, but with social media, rumors get everywhere, and one of those rumors was that Prince was coming. So he didn't want to do it in the end."

On the effect of social media on booking: "All the social media chit-chat now about who might be playing really doesn't help us. People think we've advertised them early, but there'd be no point to us leaking details because the tickets sell out in an hour in October, before the headline acts are announced. People come for what the event means to them, not the headline acts."

On mixing different genres on the same lineup: "I think that was a gradual thing, really. We've changed as fashions change, and in a way we've just tried to follow the trends of youth culture. Actually, I tried to stick to the stuff I like, but people wanted more of this or that, and then my kids would say, "We like dance music, we want a dance village!" I'd say, "Aww, but I don't like it though!" and they'd reply "It's not about you, it's about us!" So we've changed things like that. My own tastes are not diverse, not really. I like Neil Young, do a bit of Elvis, and a bit of Van Morrison sometimes I do try to vary it by having a little go at Frank Turner though."
