Kanye West has been announced as one of the headliners for the annual UK festival, Glastonbury, making the G.O.O.D. rapper the second rap artists to headline in the history of the event — the first rap artist being his Watch The Throne partner in crime, Jay Z. Typically, the event is very much rock music-oriented.
Glastonbury announced Ye as the headliner for the Saturday night of the four-day long festival. It runs from June 24 until June 28 in Somerset. Foo Fighters are headlining the Friday night, with Sunday night’s headliner not yet announced.
