A man has caused quite a stir on social media this week after claiming that people of a certain age ‘ruin the vibe’ when the attend festivals.
In a Tweet that’s now been shared thousands of time, Daniel claimed that anyone over the age of 35 at a music festival was ‘weirding everyone out’.
Naturally, a lot of people in that age bracket have responded with outrage, flooding the thread with pictures of themselves enjoying live music events.
As they should.
The original post claimed: “people over the age of 35 (and that’s pushing it) attending music festivals don’t realise they’re ruining the vibe and weirding everyone out.
“you might think you’re living your best life but you’re actually living your most embarrassing life. try a real ale festival instead.”
Thousands have responded saying people should be free to attend any event they fancy and enjoy life, at all ages.
One person said: “So sh*te to see how many likes this genuinely has, let people do what they want and enjoy their life they’re not bothering anyone?”
Another said: “Please my under-35 brethren, release yourselves from the shackles of giving f**ks about other people living their lives, if it’s ruining your vibe, your vibe wasn’t strong enough to begin with.”
One wrote: “You do realise by the time we get to 35 & especially after our 40s , we’ve reached the stage that we really really don’t give a s**t if we our ‘ruining’ your vibe or ‘weirding’ you out. It great. We don’t need anyones approval. Enjoy yourself.”
Someone pointed out that the average performer age at some of the biggest festivals in the world tends to be over 35.
That includes Parklife in our own city this weekend, where the headliners include 50 Cent (46 years old), Chase & Status (40 and 41 respectively), Eric Prydz (45) and Jessie Ware (37).
Not to mention Glastonbury, which will be headlined by music royalty like Paul McCartney, Diana Ross and Noel Gallagher – all of whom are well past their 35th birthdays.
One person Tweeted: “@glastonbury will you please tell the pyramid stage they’re weirding everyone out.”
The original poster – who has now changed his profile picture to the words ‘chill out’ – said: “Can’t respond to everyone, but please stop sending me photos of yourself at festivals, you look ridiculous. and that’s coming from me and my marker pen hair. at least I know i look stupid.”
He also said that he ‘wouldn’t show up to music festivals’ personally, because: “I’m in my 40s so it would be ridiculous. i tend to my allotment, read books and walk the dog. let the kids have their fun. my dad wasn’t at the same gigs as me and i won’t be at the same ones as my kids. it’s perfectly normal.”

Trailer released for new Netflix drama series starring Michelle Keegan airing in the new year
The first trailer for a new Netflix show starring Michelle Keegan and Joanna Lumley has now been released.
In case you hadn’t heard, the highly-anticipated new crime drama show, which is titled Fool Me Once, is an adaptation of Harlan Coben’s popular novel, and is set to air on the streaming service as soon as 2024 arrives.
But now, the release of the first trailer has proved it looks brilliantly binge-worthy.
The eight-part series follows Manchester-born actress Michelle Keegan’s character, Maya Starn, who is a former special ops pilot struggling with the tragic murder of her husband, Joe, who is played by Richard Armitage.
Detective Sergeant Sami Kierce, who is portrayed by Adeel Akhtar, conducts the investigation into Joe’s death while wrestling with his own hidden truths.
Things start to get interesting though, when she observes via the nanny cam her supposedly deceased husband playing with their baby daughter in her own home.
Meanwhile, Maya’s niece and nephew embark on the journey to seek answers about their own mother’s murder which took place months ago.
But one question remains – could the two mysteries be related?
The first trailer for the show was released by Netflix at the end of last week, and it showcases a star-studded cast with the likes of Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
The streaming service has unveiled a selection of first look images, showcasing a star-studded cast with the likes of Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
Filming took place in Yorkshire, where production crews were spotted in the Burdock Way area near the centre of Halifax, but Michelle Keegan was also spotted filming in Manchester city centre back in May.
Fool Me Once will air on Netflix in the UK on Monday 1 January.

Timothée Chalamet thinks the sexiest British accent is… Hull?
Hollywood A-lister Timothée Chalamet has revealed the British accents he finds sexiest, and the results are unexpected.
The 27-year-old star of Wonka said that a Hull accent is up there as one of his favourites, along with Italian and French.
How does Timothée Chalamet even know about Hull’s existence, never mind know what the accent sounds like?
The star, who rose to astronomical fame back in 2017 with his portrayal of Elio in Call Me By Your Name, and has since starred in blockbusters such as Dune and Little Woman, revealed his favourite access on the current Wonka press tour, The Hoot reports.
Chalamet appeared on LadBible TV talking to Keegan-Michael Key, where they discuss the internet’s biggest debates.
In a segment where they debate the British accent, Chalamet goes on to reveal his top three British accents… and the answers are not what you would expect.
Firstly he admits his favourite is the Hull accent, he says: “I like the Hull accent. Hull is sexy”.
We’ve never thought of the Hull accent as particularly sexy before, but we will absolutely take it.
He then goes onto say: “I like Hull, Essex is my top three, and I like a middle-aged Yorkshire accent.”
We’re not sure the difference between a Yorkshire and a middle-aged Yorkshire accent, but what Timothée wants then Timothée will get.
In the comments, one person said: “I’m from Hull and nobody in Hull likes the Hull accent lol.”
Another joked: “suddenly i have the hull accent.”
And someone else wrote: “good day to have a hull accent.”
So thank you Timmy, we’d have to say that we wholeheartedly agree and that our accent is in fact, the sexiest of them all.
Next time we’d like to see you attempt a Yorkshire accent on the big screen, because we’re sure you’d absolutely smash it.
