A typically cynical Noel Gallagher criticized Avicii and other festival-headlining DJs in a series of interviews surrounding Scotland's T In The Park festival earlier this month. Now Avicii and fellow Gallagher-shaded producer deadmau5 are responding to the High Flying Birds frontman.
Gallagher had said of his fellow headliner Avicii, "I don't know anything about Avicii. I don't wish to know anything about Avicii. It sounds like an artist from the Renaissance period." Of the DJ's then-impending set, Gallagher said "Don't worry, I can save [the festival] after that." In another interview, he said that festivals are becoming "disturbing, if a dude in a hat and a pair of fake DJ decks pressing play on a CD player is what it's all about. That's quite a bleak future."
