Sex Pistols' John Lydon Calls Modern Day Festivals 'Posh Butlins'

Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon has compared modern day festivals to “posh Butlins”, where the crowd are full of “polite schoolteachers”.

Although the Sex Pistols headlined the Isle of Wight Festival last month, Lydon said that it didn't compare to events in the bands heyday.

“I was remembering festivals in the 70s and how crazy mad they used to be and what great fun,” he told the Daily Star.

“This lot were deckchairs, posh Butlins – what I was performing to was polite schoolteachers.”

“But it’s all right because it’s not the kids that need education – it’s that lot. I didn’t go to Glastonbury because what’s that without the hippies and the rave?”

What do you think of Lydon's comments? Are festival these days simply full of posh school teachers? Let Gigwise know your thoughts by posting a comment below.
