Rudimental star Kesi Dryden has admitted he's looking forward to partying with his friends before his set at The Parklife Weekender this weekend

Rudimental's Kesi Dryden is worried about getting too drunk before his performance at The Parklife Weekender this weekend.

The 'Waiting All Night' hitmakers are scheduled to perform at the music festival at Manchester's Heaton Park on Saturday night (07.06.14), and Kesi's admits he'll have plenty of Dutch courage when he takes to the stage.

Quizzed on whether he'd be drinking with other festival goers before Rudimental's set, he said: "Yeah, definitely. I'm a bit worried about managing to get on stage because we're on at nine o'clock and all of my friends are going to be there, so I'm going to be partying all day. I'll have to try to keep it together."

However, his bandmate DJ Locksmith - whose real name is Leon Rolle - insists their partying won't get in the way of their performance because their music is all about having fun and letting their hair down.

Speaking at The Other Ball in aid of Arms Around The Child in London, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "At the end of the day we're big fans of the industry. We love to party and we just can't wait to get on stage.

"We just like enjoying ourselves and whether we've had a drink or not we always go on with the same attitude. We just want to please the fans so that they keep coming to see us!"

The quartet - which also includes Piers Agget and Amir Amor - are also performing at Glastonbury later this month and Piers thinks the controversy surrounding Metallica's headline set is uncalled for.

He said: "I don't know much about Metallica but I know they're a huge rock band and I'm sure any rock band would smash the headline slot on the night."
