Stop the press!! We saw it coming, the bookies certainly saw it coming, but it wasn’t until yesterday that Glastonbury Festival took to Twitter to confirm that Kanye West is set to fill the Saturday headline slot at this years Glastonbury Festival.
 
The wildly outspoken and muchly auto-tuned rapper will join ranks with Foo Fighters as the second confirmed headliners, leaving a vacant Sunday night closing spot for what must surely be a British act!?! We sure do hope this is eventually the case…
 
As you can see, the response to the announcement of Kanye’s headline slot has been met with equal parts joy and disdain, it is literally a 50/50 divide. It takes us back to 2008 when Jay Z took to the Pyramid Stage for the very same headline slot; after outcry from the likes of Noel Gallagher and such proclaiming it ‘wrong’ to have a rap headline act at the celebrated festival, Jay Z proved that a hip hop star deserved to grace the Pyramid Stage as much as any band shaped musical outfit, and we must say, after Kanye West’s utterly triumphant performance at this years Brit Awards, we are wholeheartedly excited to see what he can pull out of the hat this time around…
 
Push comes to shove, it makes for quite the spectacle. Kanye West does two things especially well; one is music, this is something he has been nailing with alarming consistency for over ten years now and the second is controversy, we all know Kanye does controversy better than the best of them. The result will be an electric show full of events and eventfulness - mark our words!
