Hozier Has Admitted He's Feeling Nervous Ahead Of Tomorrow's Glastonbury Performance

He's performed with Annie Lennox at the Grammys, toured all over the word and wowed the crowds at Coachella so you could be forgiven for thinking htat Hozier would be taking this weekend's Glastonbury appearance in his stride.

However, the Wicklow man has revealed that he is feeling the pressure ahead of his high-profile slot at the iconic festival.


Having played the John Peel stage last year, the Take Me To Church singer's career has since skyrocketed and he is now due to play the Pyramid Stage tomorrow at 1pm - the same site headlined last night by Florence And The Machine.

"It’s quite a leap, isn’t it?! I only realised that I was doing the Pyramid Stage quite recently. I’m kind of blown away by it! I’m absolutely thrilled, obviously. It’s going to be daunting, but a big landmark for me – very surreal," he told DJ Greg James.

He added that, despite his nerves, he is looking forward to his trip to Worthy Farm and enjoys the ad hoc nature of festival performances.

"I’ve never done anything like this before! Festival gigs are different, there’s no sound check because the changeover can be quite quick, so you go out there and you kind of fly by the seat of your pants, and that provides a new energy every time, which I love.

"I would imagine, when the day comes, a few minutes before going on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, that’ll be reason enough to be nervous."
