He’s the 51-year-old dad DJ who keeps on spinning the decks despite a spell in rehab and a midlife crisis.

But none of the above seems to faze Fatboy Slim, who has confirmed he will be playing Glastonbury for his 15th consecutive year.

In an interview with The Independent, the DJ said he will unveil a new feel good disco-circus compilation called the Smile High Club at the Worthy Farm festival.

Fatboy Slim, whose real name is Norman Cook, said he decides whether to do a set if its criteria meets three of his “five F” rules.

“So, my agenda is: I do about 70 shows a year. I could probably do 300. But they have to fulfil three of the give F’s: a first – something I’ve never done before. A favour for a friend, whether a promoter or another DJ. Fun – Glastonbury is always fun,” he said.

 

“Finance – it’s a big payer. And food. I’ve booked gigs in certain places just so I can go to certain restaurants. I played in Barcelona so I could go to El Bulli. That was my rider. We did the same with Noma in Copenhagen.”

The DJ will join already confirmed Glastonbury acts including The Chemical Brothers, Super Furry Animals, Jon Hopkins and Hot Chip.

The Foo Fighters, Kanye West and The Who will headline Glastonbury Festival, which takes place from 24-28 June in Somerset.
