Wiley vs Glastonbury

Grime pioneer in hilarious Twitter rant...
Wiley

Grime pioneer Wiley has arrived on site at Glastonbury - and he does not like what he sees.

Returning after a year sabbatical, this year's Glastonbury has been met with a wave of media adoration. As life changing as the festival can be, it's always re-freshing to hear a differing opinion, a voice which stands out from the consensus.

Something which Wiley has always been good at. Four Top 10 singles in a row have made the grime pioneer hot property once again, and Glastonbury were quick to book the rapper for this summer's event.

However it's a decision they could soon regret. In a series of Tweets, Wiley decried the festival, the organisers, his management team (specifically John Woolf) and a hell of a lot more.

Here are some selected highlights... (helpfully collated by FACT)
