Wiley - Wiley Pulls Out Of Glastonbury Dj Set

British rapper Wiley has pulled out of plans to perform at the U.K.'s legendary Glastonbury festival after complaining about the weather conditions and the low pay.

The Heatwave hitmaker arrived at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England on Friday morning (28Jun13) ahead of his Dj set on Saturday (29Jun13), but he quickly made it clear he was not happy to be there.

In a series of Twitter.com posts, he wrote, "Soon as I land ...Rain ffs (for f**k's sake)... Glastonbury ain't paying me enough to leave my comfort zone... tight b**tards (sic)".

He then reached out to organisers at the official Glastonbury Twitter page and asked to be removed from the bill, pleading, "Please cancel me I do not want to play for you ever again... please cancel me without sueing I would like that... Tell michael eavis (festival founder) I dont wanna play please maybe he has the power to throw me off the line up... (sic)".

After failing to receive a reply, Wiley decided to take matters into his own hands and hopped into a car to leave the Glastonbury grounds and head to London's Heathrow Airport.

Updating fans online, he wrote, "Ya know what... en route to heathrow realtalk...lol (laugh out loud).... Idc (I don't care). Make sure you go see the Rolling Stones tho...

"I don't have to play there... all this moaning means nothing to neither me or god... Tbf (to be fair) my manager and team could of prevented this but I don't blame them I'm just glad I ain't at glasto... Amen (sic)."

Event organisers have yet to comment on Wiley's departure; he had been due to play an hour-long Dj set in the Sonic tent on Saturday afternoon.

The 2013 Glastonbury festival officially kicked off on Friday with performances from Alt-J, Haim, Jake Bugg, Rita Ora, The Vaccines and the Arctic Monkeys.

The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons will headline the main stage on Saturday and Sunday (30Jun13), respectively.
