Jay Z To Headline Glastonbury Festival

Source - BBC

The Self Proclaimed 'Best Rapper Alive'; Jay Z, Has Been Confirmed As The Headlining Act For This Year's Glastonbury Festival, Here In The UK.

The organiser of the event; Michael Eavis told the BBC that he wanted to - "Break With Tradition" & "Put On Something Totally Different". Adding that - "He Will Appeal To The Young People & Under 25s For Sure".

The festival, which is held annually each June, normally attracts more of a 'rock crowd', with acts like U2 or Coldplay usually headlining the main stage. In recent years, Hip-Hop acts at UK festivals have received abuse from rock fans, at the Reading Festival for example, 50 Cent had bottles of urine thrown at him & was forced to leave the stage. lol.

I'm not so sure this will get the Hip-Hop heads going to Glastonbury, the event is synonymous with bad weather & huge lakes of mud. I can't see people replacing their 'Box-Fresh' trainers, with big boots, just to see one act, even if it is the Jigga-Man.
