Davis, 58, who won six world titles during the 1980s, retired from snooker in April and looks to have already found a new, and unexpected, career path.

Davis told the BBC that he is to perform in the Stonebridge Bar at the infamous festival, though he’s still unsure on what day.

Davis, once ranked as world number one for seven seasons on the trot, went on to say that the idea of someone like him taking the stage at such a musical mecca is nothing, if not unique.

"There's novelty value of some boring snooker player suddenly playing electronic music. I've got my wellies ready and we're going to go down there and bring our records."

As to what the punters can expect from a Steve Davis showcase, the ‘Ginger Magician’ claimed to have more in store than the average DJ.

"It's not necessarily techno. We're playing some stuff that's electronic and some that will appeal that people who are into IDM (intelligent dance music)."

"Stuff that's a bit more complicated and a little bit more leftfield than 'doof, doof, doof'."
