Festival fans react to Stormzy as Glastonbury headliner


It was always going to kick up a storm. British rapper Stormzy has been confirmed as the first headliner for Glastonbury Festival 2019. Traditionally hosting bands on the famous Pyramid Stage, the festival has evolved to become so much more than that.

The Croydon artist, real name Michael Omari, will be the first grime MC to headline Glastonbury a year on from his BRIT award winning album Gang Signs and Prayers. He previously performed on the Other Stage in 2017.

Festival fans are claiming he isn’t a worthy choice having only released one album. Others argue the Pyramid Stage is to showcase the best of British, making Stormzy the obvious fit.
