Several years ago Adele, who is set to headline Glastonbury Festival next weekend, said she would never play in festivals because she couldn't cope with the size of the crowd. She said, "I have anxiety attacks, constant panicking on stage, my heart feels like it's going to explode because I never feel like I'm going to deliver, ever." "I will not do festivals," she adds. "The thought of an audience that big frightens the life out of me."
