Ed Sheeran is one of the most popular male artists out there at the moment but that didn’t stop one festival organiser from having a dig earlier this week.
John Giddings, who runs the Isle Of Wight Festival, hit out at the Gimme Love singer during a rant about the current state of the music industry.
“We’re not building headliners any more. Nobody can invest in building a band over five albums. And if boring acts like Ed Sheeran are the future then we’re all screwed,” he told The Daily Telegraph.
Sheeran obviously heard the comments and decided to have his own say on the matter, with this brilliant tweet.
@Gigwise he asked me to do the festival next year a few weeks ago funnily enough and i couldn’t do it due to another gig
