The well-known hip-hop artist is to headline UK’s biggest performing arts festival. Are you excited or enraged?

After revealing acts such as Adele, Foo Fighters, Coldplay and more, as part of their line-up, Glastonbury has dropped another epic name in the mix. Kanye West will be headlining UK’s favourite music and performing arts fest, causing mixed reactions. While some of the rock enthusiasts out there are not-s0-stoked about the hip-hop veteran headlining Glastonbury– so much so that several of them initiated a petition signing in order to stop him from performing at the fest, many of the Kanye fans are thrilled by the news.

Glastonbury festival, with an explosive lineup and an amazing location, is easily one of UK’s most anticipated festivals. And with Kanye West as the headliner, reasons to not attend this fest are pretty much non-existent.
