Marcus Mumford was thrown out Glastonbury two years ago because he tried to steal a sofa
Marcus Mumford was once thrown out of Glastonbury for trying to steal a sofa.
The Mumford & Sons frontman was escorted out of the VIP area of the annual music extravaganza, held near Pilton in Somerset, by security when his band was headlining two years ago because he tried to swipe the lavish furniture from his dressing room.
Speaking to Chris Moyles on Radio X on Friday (16.12.16), he said: "We came off stage and I tried to nick a sofa from the dressing room - and got chucked out They didn't let me back in [because we were quite merry after the performance]. They'd just had enough of us by the end. And they said, 'get out and don't come back."
And it seems the 29-year-old rocker doesn't have much luck when he performs at Glastonbury as the time before last - in 2010 - he suffered a panic attack before he went on stage because it was the biggest arena they'd performed at before.
Marcus - who is married to Carey Mulligan - explained: "I'd had a panic attack the last time we played Glastonbury ... So I was nervous about it anyway, because this was bigger than [the John Peel stage], and so I was just relieved more than anything else.
"And then we did a big thing at the end with Vampire Weekend and a bunch of people and it went well. And then, we came off ... and I wanted a sofa! I really wanted a sofa."
