The punk rockers reportedly didn’t want to share their private toilet and asked for a high security barrier to keep people out at Scotland’s Live at Loch Lomond festival.
Frontman John Lydon - also known as Johnny Rotten - was also said to be incensed when he realised electro band Autokratz were being driven around the event in a better car than his band, and demanded the vehicles were switched.
Autokratz singer David Cox told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “The Sex Pistols had two Land Rovers to ferry them around the site but Johnny seemed to prefer our car.
“So he made us take all our equipment out so he could travel 40 metres in it.”
Once the switch had been completed, John allegedly shouted: “Autokratz, as we have taken your Auto you are now just Kratz.”
When the band took to the stage, Lydon - who is also believed to have requested a bone china tea set - took a swipe at recent allegations he was involved in a racist incident.
While performing ‘Holiday In The Sun’, he said: “To all who had the f***ing liberty to call me a racist I would like to say hello to Allah.
“I would like to buy Allah a f***ing good pint of lager.”
The singer and three members of his entourage were accused of verbally abusing Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke and punching him in the face and head last month.
Lydon vehemently denied the accusations.
