Kanye West will headline this year’s Glastonbury festival performing on the Pyramid stage on Saturday night, organizer Emily Eavis has confirmed.
Emily Eavis has tweeted: “We are thrilled to let you know we have the one and only Kanye West headlining Saturday night on the Pyramid stage!”
The Foo Fighters had already been confirmed as Friday night’s headliners, while the main act for the Sunday night has yet to be announced.
Tickets for Glastonbury 2015 sold out in less than 30 minutes in October 2014.
Music fans paid £225 ($340) for a ticket to the festival held at Worthy Farm in Somerset.
Back in 2008, Noel Gallagher claimed it was “wrong” to have a hip-hop headliner when Jay-Z performed on the Saturday.
Today’s announcement seemed to have passed Kanye West by at first as he spent much of it tweeting topless pictures of his wife.
Kanye West, 37, has since acknowledged the announcement tweeting: “Excited to announce I’m headlining Pyramid stage Saturday night @glastofest this year.”
