According to NME.com, guitar whizz Jack White has announced that he doesn't "get excited about festivals".
White told BBC News: "They're a necessary evil in the business. I don't get excited about festivals - they're not my favorite 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 the organizers offer bands a lot of money so they can't say no, but they're not my first choice to perform music."
He also stated: "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."
Anyone agree with Mr. White?
