Welsh farmers' Rihanna parody wins Glastonbury spot

Two teenage farmers are to perform at Glastonbury, the UK's biggest music festival, after winning an X Factor-style competition with their parody of R&B star Rihanna's S&M.

Richard Lewis, 18, of Llanfyllin, and Llion Vaughan, 17, of Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant, Powys, who use the alisases DJ Wooly and Will.I.Lamb, have named their version Plough On. The Tractor Factor competition was run by the Farmers' Guardian newspaper.

The farmers have won four tickets to the Glastonbury Festival, staged between 24 and 26 June, and have the chance to perform Plough On on the Yeo Valley stand at the festival.

Llion said: "The past weeks have been amazing, the response and support from people has been great." Richard added: "The competition has also shown that farmers these days are not just people who work with the land but are very diverse and like to have a laugh."
