We Were Right! Jay-Z Confirmed For Glastonbury

FT/3 comments • 428 views

Pete already mentioned this in the comments to our previous speculation but I think this deserves a post of it’s own just in case you missed it: Jay-Z definitely confirmed to headline Glastonbury this year.

Says Mr Eavis: “He will appeal to the young people and under-25s for sure, so that’s a big pull for them,” he said.

“It’s not like the traditional one we do, like Radiohead, Coldplay and Muse and Oasis.”

I dunno, I hear that being a Glastonbury headliner brings LOADS of problems! Like, now Jay-Z will have to worry about Nas giving him hash cookies before his normal cookies before he goes on stage and he’ll end up giggling his way through all the sweary bits!

Note how I subtly avoid mentioning the Neil Diamond issue… pah Anne Diamond would be better… and she no doubt needs the cash far more than rub old Neil.

    Were they really on the ball they would have got Jay-Z to headline Glastonbury back in 1996. If, however, by some miracle Pavement agreed to participate both acts could do a live recreation of The Slack Album and I would already have booked the tickets.

    Neil Diamond btw is GREBT and I’ll hear nothing against him except maybe The Jazz Singer.

    The Slack Album live would be the best thing ever.

    Neil Diamond at Glasto will probably be Totally Awesome! One of the most powerful / instinctive / charismatic live performers that I’ve ever seen.
