Nothing about Kanye West’s Glastonbury performance was ever going to be normal, was it? His entourage is apparently so huge for his headline set tonight that other people’s guest lists had to be cut.

The rapper looked miserable as he flew to the festival site in Somerset from London today but it seems some other members of the line-up may be a little miffed at Yeezus’ backstage requests.

The Maccabees stars Felix White and Orlando Weeks are also performing at the festival today but claim they were not able to invite everyone they wanted.

Felix told BBC Newsbeat: “We were told we only had once guest each this time. I’ve not got that many other friends who want to come, but I’m just making a point!

“We were told that this viewing platform’s been set up just for Kanye so he’s got hundreds and hundreds of guests apparently.”

However, despite more than 130,000 people signing a petition in a bid to get Kanye’s set scrapped, both musicians think the rapper is a good booking for the event.

Orlando said: “I think it’s great – you want to go to festivals to see things you wouldn’t otherwise choose to go and see.

“He’s one of the most famous entertainers in the world. I think people should get into it. It’s a treat.”
