HE'S NOT YOUR BOYFRIEND IF HE PAYS YOU, TYLER: While it's fair to say that the V festivals are great big advertising hoardings, with emphasis on the whore, is Glastonbury in any position to point out this shortcoming? With hundreds of stalls and loads of sponsors, when will they grow up and admit that they're just as corporate as anyone else? Even the Body Shop, which also gives cash to charity, is honest enough to acknowledge that it's part of the capitalist system. It'd be easier to take Glasto's purity a bit more seriously if it stopped trying to pretend that it has nothing to do with the beastly marketplace.
Glasto slags V for being over-sponsored - that would be the same Glastonbury brought to you in association with Kodak,
PlayLouder.com, Apple, and Orange amongst others, would it?
