Michael Eavis is reportedly worried that Glastonbury is becoming too middle class and elitist.

The festival's founder has allegedly blamed the cause on the regular A list attendees, which include Kate Moss, and has vowed to prevent perceptions of the event becoming too elitist.

"Michael feels Glastonbury has already become too middle class and gentrified, and is adamant that the festival continues to attract a range of ages, ethnicites and classes," a source told The Mirror.

"Not just showbiz wannabes. Kate has been a great patron of the festival over the years but Michael believes the last couple of festivals have become too much about the Kate Moss show - and not enough about grass-roots music."

Eavis intends to phase out the preconceptions by closing down VVIP tents, like the one Moss uses to hold private parties that are closed to general festival-goers.

Eavis recently promised that this year's Glastonbury will be the best ever, praising the strength of the lineup which will include headline performances from U2, Coldplay and Beyoncé.
