In an expletive filled message he claimed never to have heard of Biffy Clyro who were headlining after their set.


Melvin Benn told Radio X ahead of the event that he was really looking forward to the Nine Inch Nails set, hinting that they did have big things planned.

"I had more emails and correspondents with the Nine Inch Nails camp than I do from virtually any other band," he told Radio X's Sunta Templeton.

"They are absolutely going for it in terms of what they are going to do at the festivals this year."

Following the post-show fall out he has denied that NIN were lied to.

He's since told NME "The truth is there's no truth in the statement. The contract hasn't changed since they signed up to it."
