Elba - who played Glasto last year - also urged fans to go to the festival, "have a wicked time" and to "vote in the EU Referendum".


While fans won't be seeing the actor take to the decks this weekend, dance fans can still see the likes of Stomzy, Maribou and Four Tet at various curated stages in the area.
