The Reading and Leeds festivals banned pineapples along with weapons, drones, and fireworks from both the arenas and campsites when the events take place later in the month, The Telegraph reported.

Turns out organisers are anxious about hundreds of pineapples turning up on the site - because of Oxford band Glass Animals" song Pork Soda, which includes the lyrics "pineapples are in my head'.

When the group performed at Glastonbury in June the stage was decorated with pineapples and some fans came dressed as the exotic fruit.

Now ahead the band's anticipated R+L set, it looks like the Mercury nominees are far from happy.

The band have responded to tweets about the ban on social media, replying "yes good idea" to one fan who suggested wearing a pineapple costume instead.

The reason why? It's all to do with the band Glass Animals.

The festivals have added pineapples to the list of items banned from the massive August Bank Holiday weekend bonanzas.

"Anyone who wasn't bringing a pineapple definitely is now", he said.

"Watermelons are fine, but not pineapples?" a spokesperson questioned.

A spokesman for Reading and Leeds Festivals told the BBC: "Organisers were a little concerned about hundreds of pineapples turning up on site so chose to ask fans not to bring them along".

"The tongue may be slightly in cheek on this one".

The line-up at the festivals, which take place from 25 to 27 August, includes Kasabian, Eminem, Muse, Liam Gallagher, Haim and Korn.
