Jack White Dreads Playing Festivals
The former White Stripes star has spent the summer (12) travelling the globe to perform at a handful of outdoor festivals but admits they are "a necessary evil in the business" rather than his idea of a good time.
He tells the Bbc, "I don't get excited about festivals - they're not my favourite place to play. A lot of people come to them and there's all these pros to them. You get exposure to people who would never come and see you and (organisers) offer bands a lot of money so they can't say no, but they're not my first choice to perform music.
"Everyone's drinking and lazing in the sun and walking around and that's a fun thing for them but it's not interesting for me. I'm not trying to be negative, it's just never been too exciting for me."
