A big thanks to all who signed this. But Metallica played the festival in 2014. They are not billed to play 2015

Remove Metallica from Glastonbury line up

Remove Metallica from the festival line up. Due to James Hetfields vile obsession with Bear Hunting

Why is this important?

This is a cruel and abhorrent thing to do. Killing animals for food is one thing. But killing for so called sport is wrong.

You can write to Glastonbury festival here: [email protected]

Reasons for signing

  • against hunting
  • KILLING FOR SPORT IS WRONG ..HATE ALL SPORT WHERE ANIMALS ARE INVOLVED...He should be setting an example to his fans not posing with a gun beside a dead animal he has killed
  • I signed because in this day and age this should not be happening. Glastonbury is held to help Greenpeace and other charities. Micheal Evis should be ashamed letting the likes of him though the gates..!!! I hope he gets the welcome he deserves..

As for Michael and Emily Eavis. They are farmers first. And generally if they cant make a profit off furry things, then they kill them. This is outside of the scope of this petition. But fox hunting has been banned in the UK. And as Mr Eavis is a dairy farmer, has a vested interest in Badger culling. However, Vaccination has been proved more effective.
Once again Thanks to everyone for their support, to those going to the festival, including the Eavis family and Metallica. I wish you all a great and successful fesitval and hope the weather works in your favour

Thanks to all that signed. This petition was set up on behalf of a Facebbook campaign. Obviously, some people have missed the point. So for clarity. This wasnt about Metallica the band. It was about James Hetfields obesseion with trophy murder.
My personal opinion is, Glastonbury festival itself is still passing itself off as a Hippy Peace festival, including a strong family orientation. The truth is, Glastonbury festival organisors are all about money. This is just a shameless corporate event. And hopefully will be billed as such one year.
I personally dont think Metallica are a bad choice. I just disagree with James Hetfield murdering bears for fun.

Currently trying to gain Greenpeace to be involved. But no response. If anyone can assist in requesting their support. Also NO RESPONSE FROM THE FESTIVAL ORGANISERS. Please help to put pressure on these people
