Ed Sheeran’s Glasto rider is just as dry as his music

The singer-songwriter’s backstage demands have apparently been leaked

Headlining Glastonbury is an opportunity afforded to just a small selection of artists, a once-in-a-lifetime kind of gig. So when the opportunity lands in your lap, the sky’s the limit to make the experience as epic as possible. A fleet of bright white doves – yes! Jacuzzis full of bubbling champagne backstage - yes! That is unless you’re Ed Sheeran.

What could become known as the wildest thing to hit the British shores since Ozzy Osbourne went for that poor bat, Ed Sheeran has asked, nay demanded, that he be supplied with what appears to be the contents of a primary school snack shop. According to a "leaked" copy of his rider, Sheeran has gone for a bottle of Robinsons Squash, a six-pack of Coca-Cola, a six-pack of Diet Coke, a six-pack of Fanta Orange and a six-pack of Sprite. There's also a jar of honey, to keep his vocal cords warm.

It reads a bit like the ingredients for the summer party you had for your 11th birthday, so hang on to your hat, because it looks like Sheeran's headline slot is going to be crazy. That's a hell of a lot of sugar he's about to consume.

The total bill for the rider apparently clocks in at just under £60, which should leave enough change for a couple of Freddos if he fancies a snack.
