Steve Davis is DJing at Glastonbury

The former snooker world champion is playing the festival’s Stonebridge Bar

Last month Betway set the odds for Steve Davis to playing Glastonbury at 50/1. We hope some of you heeded our advice and took a punt because he’s just been announced to play the festival’s Stonebridge Bar.

Speaking to the BBC about his appearance at the historic Worthy Farm event, Davis said: "There's novelty value of some boring snooker player suddenly playing electronic music. I've got my wellies ready and we're going to go down there and bring our records."

Elaborating on the type of music he plans to spin, the Phoenix FM selector who hosts a weekly slot alongside Kavus Torabi, said: "It's not necessarily techno. We're playing some stuff that's electronic and some that will appeal that people who are into IDM. Stuff that's a bit more complicated and a little bit more leftfield than 'doof, doof, doof'."

The six-time snooker world champ’s transformation into an underground DJ has taken many by surprise, with Davis noting the following he’s building is “a little bit culty."

Glastonbury takes places across June 22 to 26, head here for further details.
