Brit rocker Richard Ashcroft stormed off stage during his set at the Splendour in the Grass festival last night.
The former Verve frontman was reportedly unhappy with the small crowd that had come to watch him and lashed out at Splendour organisers for putting him on at the same time as two of the festival's major draws, Empire of the Sun and the Pixies.
He stopped mid-song and told startled fans he may as well go and watch the Pixies instead of continuing with his set.
He then reportedly threw down his tambourine and stormed off to a waiting car.
Festival-goers left the venue complaining about his unprofessionalism.
