Beyoncé to Headline Glastonbury Festival

Beyoncé

Following in the footsteps of her husband Jay-Z, Beyoncé is set to headline England’s Glastonbury Festival this summer.

The five-day music event, billed as the largest green-field music and performing arts festival in the world, will play to an audience of around 200,000, on Worthy Farm, Pilton, in South West England at the end of June. The world-renowned superstar will be the headliner on the final day of the festival on Sunday, June 26, performing a 90-minute set on the Pyramid Stage.

“This really is the biggest festival in the world and I cannot wait to perform there. Everyone who attends is really appreciative of music and is in such a good mood that entire weekend,” said Beyoncé. “I’m pumped just thinking about that huge audience and soaking up their energy.”

Mr. Carter came under fire from Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher when he was tapped as the first hip-hop artist to headline Glastonbury in 2008. Mainly known for its rock acts, the festival has featured past appearances from Snoop Dogg, N.E.R.D., and Amy Winehouse.

    People are already being negative saying she doesn’t belong there. They did the same with Jay and he rocked it. Oh well this means new music in June. Yas.
