Jay-Z To Headline Glastonbury

Jay-Z will headline the British festival that takes place from June 27 to June 29. The event’s founder michael Eavis said he wanted to “break with tradition this time and put on something totally different. He will appeal to the young people and under-25s for sure, so that’s a big pull for them. It’s not like the traditional one we do, like Radiohead, Coldplay, Muse and Oasis.” This is a big change from the traditional headliner who is usually a rock act and it was speculated before that it could have been Radiohead.

    There’s been alot of discussion in the UK as to whether a rap artist can headline at Glastonbury festival. But the problem is not that Jay-Z is headlining at Glastonbury this year. The problem is that he is the MAIN headline because The Verve, however good they may be, are past their prime & Kings Of Leon are great, but not an A List attraction.As I’ve written on tickets prices & lack of a big attraction such as Radiohead, Coldplay or U2 is the problem, not Jay-Z.
