Dizzee Rascal loves performing at the Glastonbury music festival in Somerset, South West England, because he always ''gets mobbed'' by fans

Dizzee Rascal "always gets mobbed" when he plays at Glastonbury.

The 24-year-old 'Bonkers' rapper - who performed at the iconic festival in Somerset, South West England last weekend - has been a big fan of the music event since performing with the Arctic Monkeys in 2007.

He said: "Playing with Arctic Monkeys opened my eyes. I thought I'd just go, do it, just for something to do. But they were the biggest rock band at the time.

"It's the festival with the biggest tradition behind it. And I always get mobbed here."

The 'Holiday' hitmaker - whose real name is Dylan Mills - admits he struggles to wind down after a performance and needs some time to himself before he can prepare himself for bed.

He explained: "I'm just hyper, really hyper, when I come off stage. You can't do all that and just go back and go to sleep.

"I need to pat down backstage for a bit. I'll probably just play some more computer."
