The weirdest and, in some ways best, act has just been confirmed for Glasto 16

The weirdest and, in some ways best, act has just been confirmed for Glasto 16

In weird news, former snooker player Steve Davis has been confirmed for Glastonbury Festival 2016.

Following his DJ debut at Bloc earlier in the year, Davis will play the Stonebridge Bar at Glasto. 

"I've got my wellies ready and we're going to go down there and bring our records," he said.

"There's novelty value of some boring snooker player suddenly playing electronic music...It's not necessarily techno. We're playing some stuff that's electronic and some that will appeal that people who are into IDM [intelligent dance music].

"Stuff that's a bit more complicated and a little bit more leftfield than 'doof, doof, doof'."

He continued: "It's more about trying to introduce some artists that you may not know exist, who are in a like-minded vein. On the radio show, we get a good soundboard for what might go down well.

"Obviously, when you've got to have your foot tapping, you're limited to what you can play. You can't put any stroky beard stuff out there."

Glastonbury Festival takes place from 22-26 June.
